Linda Burkhart – Technician
Since 1982 Linda has immersed herself in on-the-job-training at several animal hospitals. She joined the Animal Clinic of Billings in 2007. Over the years, Linda has developed a keen interest in on-site safety, pet nutrition and fear-free animal treatment practices. When there is a jittery new patient or a perpetually nervous longtime patient being treated at the Animal Clinic, Linda is often one of the first staff members to successfully calm and reassure the animals. Linda finds her ability to make friends with anxious and nervous clients at the Animal Clinic of Billings and Animal Surgery Clinic the most rewarding aspect of her job.
Linda loves educating clients on techniques to provide their furry family members with the best care possible. She also thrives on the meeting the variety of diverse dogs and cats that visit the clinic. Best of all, Linda said it is rewarding to see pets find fulfillment in helping heal and then reuniting them with their ecstatic owners. Linda’s household includes a 15 ½ year-old silver Tabby.
