22 Thursday, November 6, 1997 Pahrump Valley Gazette Vet committed to care by Patti Babcock PVG Staff Caring for small animals, preventivecare and treatment for illness and/or injury, is what happens at the Animal Care Center of Pahrump. There is also loving care for pets who need a place to stay while master is away. Holly Henseler, D.VM. opened the newly constructed, state-of-the-art center in late September. She is assisted by Beth Soto and Jennifer Page who describe themselves as "animal nurses" and who look the part in their pastel uniforms. Receptionist Pat Johnson makes appointments and takes care of the office duties. The staffis friendly, helpful and most of all concerned about both the animal and the owner. One welcome amenity is separate reception areas for canines and felines. Cat owners who have experienced the reaction, of even a sick cat, to the bared teeth of a big dog will be happy to forego the waiting room trauma. Boarding areas, separated from the medical area, are also divided. Separate, Dr. Holly Henseler in one of her examination rooms with feline patient, Marmalade. photo by Patti Babcock too, are isolation rooms for animals with contagious illnesses. Dr. Henseler performs surgery most mornings. She en- courages owners to neuter or spay their pets and gives them the option to leave the animal in her care overnight. In addition to the surgery room, the center has a surgical prep and treatment room, an X-ray room, an in-house labora- tory and three exam rooms. Full veterinary services are pro- vided in these areas including preventive health care, medical care, surgical treatment including spaying and neutering, or- thopedic treatment and dental care. Micro-chip identification is an additional service to protect pets. Emergency care is avail- able 24 hours a day. Pet food is available in its own store adjoining the recep- tion area. More pet items will be stocked soon. The Animal Care Center of Pahrump is located at the far north end of town at 6981 North Highway 160. It's the white building on the right as you head north just before you reach the cattle guard. Surrounded by open desert, complaints from neighbors aren' t likely to be a problem. It has easy access and plenty of parking space. Dr. Henseler graduated from the University of Wis- consin School of Veterinary Medicine in 1988. She was a veterinarian in Wisconsin un- til she moved to Pahrump last year. Until recently, she worked for a veterinary prac- tice in Las Vegas. Dr. Henseler was an intensive care nurse prior to studying to be a vet- erinarian.
