This week, on August 15th to be exact, Dr. Pettigrew turns 70 years old. Dr. Pettigrew started Fountain City Vet in 1976 and has continued to practice as a full time small animal veterinarian for the past 41 years. He has stated that the key to working past retirement age other than general health is to do what you love, period. He has had tough days, long hours, and crazy cases for the past four decades, but he wouldn't trade that for anything. Happy Birthday, Dr. Pettigrew!
