  • Teller

    Teller is the newest member of our McCaw Veterinary Team.  He received his cute name because he used to peruse the streets of Nicholasville down by a local bank. He was even known to sneak in the building when the staff members entered the bank.  One of the tellers brought him to us in January 2017.  He quickly became part of the family, and he we haven't been able to part with him.  So, with that being said, Welcome to the family "Teller!"
