Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen

Several years ago I was on my way to Fairbanks, Alaska. While visiting a lot of places in the 49th and largest state of the U.S. I stopped in North Pole as well. I never received one of the personalized Santa letters from there which are being sent out to children since 1952.

But I spotted like lots of visitors before me the Santa Claus House. One of the official places of Santa around the world it seems. And a place of 365 days christmas activities.

For the last report about unusual and surprising hospitals in the world in 2015 I found this: The North Pole Verterinary Hospital. Started in 1971 the three engaged veterinarian doctors Denali Lovely, Melissa Rouge and Dawn Brown present quite some service as a power-women-trio there.

Would you have expected such a service list?
Dentistry
Dermatology
Diagnostic Imaging
Emergency Medicine
End of Life Support and Euthanasia
Health Certificates
Laboratory Testing
Microchipping
Nutritional Counseling
OFA / PennHIP Certifications
Ophthalmology
Parasite Prevention
Puppy and Kitten Packages
Radiology
Reproduction
Senior Care
Surgery/Anesthesia
Vaccinations
Wellness Exams

Simply impressive. Veterinary hospitals have no “beds” but the same dedication for health. And animals. Small ones and big ones.

And there are promotions as well:

This year, Dr. Lovely was featured in the Newsminer’s Women in Business – see the article on page 14 here. She bought the hospital in 2006 with her husband. She developed that special hospital to the actual size with 4 veterinarians and 18 staffers. “This is not a 9-to-5 job; it’s 12-hour days sometimes”. Not only as the past president of the Alaska Veterinary Medical Association but as a manager, veterinarian with passion and a mother and wife she stands for the true comittment it takes to run a hospital.

I am sure that even Santa’s reindeers would love to go there for a check-up, some dental control and vaccinations to stay on top for the yearly christmas eve race around the world.

Dear readers – I wish you all the best for 2016. New hospital reports are comming, stay tuned, take care.
