After a one month unplanned medical leave I had to make some rather dramatic decisions regarding the structure of my business. Decisions were made keeping my family & my health in mind. I have chosen to continue to offer housecalls and wellness clinics, but I did cut back the number of locations that I will travel to. I live north of Ames in Nevada. A trip to Des Moines is easily a 100 mile round trip, and the driving became too much.
For the month of October my hours are as follows: Tu/Th/Fri 9-11, 2-6, Wed - Bone-A-Patreat in Des Moines 11-6 by appointment, Sat October 10th Bone-A-Patreat in Des Moines 10-5 by appointment, Sunday October 11th Wholesome Pet Essentials in Ankeny 12-4 by appointment, Saturday October 24th Bone-A-Patreat in WEST Des Moines 10-5 by Appointment. I am closed on Mondays. Housecalls to Central Iowa are available on nights and weekends (and after wellness clinics) by appointment.
Thank you to the clients who have been patiently waiting for me to return. I am back - better than ever. I also apprecite the respect regarding the change in my schedule. The human critter below is my main focus in life. This is a picture of Ethan & our new kitten, Bobbie Ray. This cat is so bonded to my son that he could really care less if my husband or I are trying to love on him.
With my new schedule I can take my son to school, pick him up, and & can take him to his 'ninja' classes. It is the little things in life. ;)
Dr. Strobbe lives with her husband-Marc, Son-Ethan, Ray, Candy Eyes, Daddy Sheep, and all the rest of the critters on a farm in Central Iowa.
