The woman behind the scenes at Island Animal Hospital is Maggie, the Practice Manager.  As a native of Ireland, Maggie joined IAH in 2005 with over twenty years in veterinary management, she is responsible for smooth operation of the day to day business. When she's not hard at work on the Island, Maggie spends time with her two Bassett Hounds, Yogi and Dini, and the two 'bosses', Squirt the Jack Russel terrier, Lola the Shih Tzu, along with two cats. Many of her animals were rescues over the years. She loves spending time at the beach, boating, traveling and taking her dogs to the parks.


Peri, rescued from the streets of Oman as a blind kitten and brought to the states through a unique Facebook campaign, landed in our lobby in 2012.

 After a couple of unsuccessful adoption attempts, due to his medical needs and poor manners, he decided that he would be happy enough to have the entire staff of Island Animal Hospital to serve him.

 He has been running the place ever since.
