Meet Dr. Haskin!
Dr. Haskin grew up in Southern Maryland, in the very small, historic town of Bryantown. She attended Towson University for her undergraduate studies and graduated Magnum Cum Laude with a B.S in Biology with a concentration in medicine. Dr. Haskin went on to complete her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine degree at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. During her studies at VMRCVM, she was awarded the Pamela M. Slack Memorial Award for commitment to non-traditional Pet and Wildlife Medicine and Surgery and the Pfizer Animal Health Small Animal Clinical Proficiency Award for outstanding achievement and dedication in the field of Veterinary Medicine.
Since graduating, Dr. Haskin has been fortunate enough to work with some of the most amazing clients to provide exemplary veterinary care to all kinds of pets. She routinely provides care to dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, small rodents, reptiles of all varieties, sugar gliders, and many kinds of local wildlife. At her previous hospital, she oversaw the wild Eastern box turtle rehab program and, with the help of dedicated technicians, treated and released over 100 turtles each year that suffered from a wide range of diseases and traumatic injuries.
Dr. Haskin is a Fear Free Certified Professional and practices Fear Free Veterinary medicine every day, with every patient. She firmly believes that every pet is entitled to the most stress free and fear free veterinary visit possible. Coupled with that, she wants pets and their owners to have access to progressive veterinary medicine so that their four-legged family members can live their best possible life.
Dr. Haskin’s special interests are the human-animal bond, soft tissue surgery, exotic species medicine and surgery, and continuing to help the native eastern box turtle population. When she is not at work, Dr. Haskin enjoys spending time with her husband, JR, and their daughter, Isabella. She also enjoys reading, craft projects, and going to the beach as much as possible!
She has a small zoo at home that includes three labs (Bonnie, Clyde and Carter), two cats (Skye and Marshall), a Senegal parrot (Daisy), a ball python (Boots), two red-eared sliders (Spud and Teeny) and twenty-four spoiled rotten chickens (they all have names too)!
Dr. Haskin started Happier at Home Mobile Veterinary Hospital to offer stress-free, fear-free veterinary care for her patients and their families. She truly treats each patient as one of her own and hopes that you will love being part of the Happier at Home family!
