Dave Mills is a retired veterinarian. His veterinary inclinations led him through dairy practice, pet practice, an unlikely and long stint in poultry practice, and full circle back to pet practice. People and their animals have provided him a lifetime of professional challenges, intriguing relationships, and entertainment. Outside of his profession, he enjoys the outdoor world, having lived in a Yurt, and tramped around Labrador on snowshoes. His wife, Lynne, and he raised five children, and live with their Black Labrador, Molly, in northern Wisconsin.
