  • Samantha Winning

    Hello! My name is Samantha Winning. Last name sound familiar? Well, that's because I am Dr. Winning's daughter. So you could say that I have been working with him since I was a baby. Growing up with a vet as a dad was the greatest childhood I could have asked for. I grew up around people who had a passion for helping animals and of course I fit right in. The past few years, I have been able to get more experience working directly with the animals and has made me want to consider a career in animal care. My favorite memory of working with my dad was when he practiced out of our home in Dairyville.

    In the middle of the night, we had a dog come in who was having trouble giving birth and Dad had to perform a cesarean section. My sister's and I watched as dad would give my mom the puppies to clear their airways and get their systems going. By the end of the night, the momma had recovered and each of us sat with a puppy in our laps until she was ready for them. After that night I realized that one way or another, I would be helping animals in any way that I could. I am currently working and going to school to get a business degree. After I achieve that degree, I would like to go to school to be a RVT.
