Meet the Staff

Dr. Hayley Grove

Opening Trusted Friend Animal Clinic has been a dream come true. I’ve had a passion for animals since the time I was a little girl cutting out pictures of cats from Cat Fancy Magazine and dressing up my miniature poodles for tea parties.

This love of animals, coupled with a fascination with biology in school, naturally led me to a career in veterinary medicine. Making an animal feel better is incredibly rewarding, and this is why I love what I do. Likewise, preventing medical and behavioral problems in pets is very important to me, so I spend a lot of time with my clients discussing nutrition and behavior.

I frequently hear from clients that they appreciate having a vet take time to explain what is going on with their pet and answering all of their questions. This makes me very happy and fulfilled because this feedback tells me that I am doing my job well and helping people as well as pets.

I hope you will call us for an appointment or stop by to meet us and take a tour of the clinic.
