It has been a while since I have had the presence of mind to sit and write. I have been busy coping with the insanity of COVID and selling my farm.
Soggy Bottoms Farm has passed into stewardship of other hands. God brought just the right person.
This has brought on many changes. Amicalola Veterinary Services office is now located at 941 Maddox Dr Suite 220; East Ellijay, GA 30540. This is located in the strip mall next to the McDonald’s in Ellijay right off Hwy 515. Across from Ingles. I do see patients there by appointment only. There is room around the back for large animal clients to trailer in or an empty parking lot at the now closed Mexican Restaurant. ( the bright yellow building) The office is best accessed from the back of the building.
My animals and I are presently living at a friends’ farm in east Pickens Co. Emma, Stripes, Levi and the Banties have settled in. I am living in my friend’s RV. Talk about downsizing!
Next year, I will have been in practice for 40 years. The time has come for me to look at continuing the practice through a younger veterinarian. I am looking to hire full time a veterinarian who has a heart for community. New graduate applicants are welcomed. I will be around to mentor. And Gilmer Co is on the list to be part of the student loan repayment program! If in your travels you run across a veterinarian looking for challenges and to own their own practice, please send them my way.
