Dawn has been a Certified Veterinary Technician for almost 20 years. She graduated from Essex Agricultural and Technical Institute with an Associate’s Degree in animal health science. She has been assisting veterinarians, caring for pets, and educating their owners ever since. Dawn is a member of the Massachusetts Veterinary Technician Association, as well as the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America. She is also actively involved with the American Diabetes Association.

In addition to all her other animal interests and veterinary experience, Dawn enjoys veterinary dental care. She is trained in veterinary dental hygiene and oversees oral hygiene and dental radiology at BVH. When your pet leaves our office with pearly whites, fresh breath, and a beautiful set of personal digital dental radiographs, Dawn is likely the one to thank!

Dawn is also certified in Companion Animal Laser Therapy. This Class IV laser decreases pain and promotes healing after surgery or dental procedures; other applications are chronic painful conditions such as arthritis.

You even have Dawn to thank when your pet’s health insurance or coupon rebate checks arrive at your home.

When not at Bassler Veterinary Hospital, Dawn enjoys spending time with her rambunctious Cairn Terrier, Sawyer, who is in the never-ending search for perfect obedience, and has obtained his Canine Good Citizenship certification.
