In addition, Tom has worked very closely with the veterinary specialists at Noah’s, functioning as an assistant for special surgeries and advanced dental work and coordinated visits from the veterinary radiologists and internal medicine specialists.  After taking a sabbatical and moving to Colorado, Tom returned to Noah’s in the Spring of 2013 and now oversees the Growth and Development Committee for the business and is the practice manager at the Noah’s Caring Hands location in Geist.
