Hi, my name is Robyn, I have been in the Veterinary world for approximately 26 years. Animals have always been my passion since I was a little girl, my first dog was a toy Poodle who lived to be 15 years old. I started at the age of 15 at a local Veterinary practice here in Panama City, while also attending school and completing online courses to be a veterinary assistant. The Veterinary world is challenging but also rewarding at the same time, everyday you learn and see something new, it is never a dull moment. I'm also a volunteer for the Northwest Florida Great Dane Rescue out of Pensacola, fostering and medical needs for these gentle giants. This is a very rewarding job to have and I LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT !!!
Sam is one of our current vet techs -- the one with the purple hair.
She worked at the local Humane Society for 6 years before joining our team. You can still see her there as their part-time vet tech.
Having had past experience with large exotic cats (internships), she was incredibly excited to learn that Dr. Hubbard sees all sorts of species!
Sam has 4 fur kids: 2 cats that traveled with her when she moved from Las Vegas, 1 handicapped kitty that was thrown out of a car window at 6 weeks old resulting in a skull fracture, and a senior dog who spent 4 years waiting to be adopted at the Humane Society.
She is very passionate about her job and always keeps a smile on her face.
Ever since I was a small child, I have had an emmence affinity for animals of all kinds. Eight years ago I met Dr. Hubbard and her affinity was revealed while she was treating one of my animals. I personally witnessed her compassionate and empathetic care; I knew she would be my 'fur babies' doctor forever. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to work for her and with her staff of people who share their compassion for your animals in the very same way.
“Sedrick” the “security cat guard” of Critter Care has been part of our family since we opened in 2014. He was found by the Dollar General in Youngstown with a broken leg, poor kitten was semi-feral and about 6 months old. Due to Dr Hubbard’s compassion, she had to fix him, he was a little challenging at first being semi feral, trying to give him meds and therapy. After a few months, Sedrick was still skittish to most people but was starting to warm up to the staff but not the public. He would hide during the day and come out at night when we closed to protect the clinic from the boogie cats. After about a year and a half he would slowly come out and greet clients but not let them really love on him. Today he is more loveable and social to all the people and he is still our protector.
