Tiffany Downing, CVT
After losing her first dog, a Doberman Pinscher named "Razor", to heart failure, her goal became to provide the highest level of care for each of her patients in order to extend quality time with their owners. Tiffany graduated from Heritage College and earned her Registered Veterinary Technician license in 2017. Tiffany has a soft spot for large and bully breeds and is currently "mom" to a Dogo Argentino Mix "Kratos", and a Pit Mix "Crash", along with a menagerie of snakes, lizards, cats and a tarantula. Tiffany moved out of state at the end of 2018, but continues to assist Lauryn with Digital Marketing, Social Media and other Administrative Tasks. When she's not working on all things digital for CROC, she works as a Certified Veterinary Technician for Ponderosa Veterinary Hospital in Kalispell, MT. Her favorite part of rehab was getting to see her favorite patients improve each week as they recovered from their injuries/surgeries.
