Dr. Eddleman's love of animals all started at the age of 10 when he was greeted by a brown-eyed, tail wagging, tongue flapping tri-colored beagle puppy named Shorty. They became instant friends and would spend hours playing in the backyard or snuggling on the couch together. From that point on, his love and fascination for animals grew and continues to grow to this day. Today, Dr. Eddleman leads our all-star TEAM in excellent care for every pet that walks through our doors. His goal is to treat each one with the love and care he would give to Shorty.
Dr. Busick grew up in Miami, Florida where her and her brother would always take in animals that came into the backyard. Anoles, iguanas and turtles to name a few, all found a safe spot to rest and some tasty greens before they moved on to other habitats. That interest and desire to care for the animals around her encouraged her to become a veterinarian so she could continue to do so on a larger scale.
Dr. Francis fell in love with animals at a very young age. No matter where she went if there was a dog, cat, or horse she would find herself gravitating towards them. As soon as her mother would allow her to start riding horses she was out at the barn learning how to take care of animals 10x her size and even volunteering additional hours of cleaning the barn so that she could get extra riding lessons! No matter how cold or hot it was, or if it was raining or snowing, you would find her out with the horses. As she grew older and started searching for her true calling she saw no better career choice than becoming a veterinarian. Her skills and interest in science mixed with her love for animals made it clear to her that any other option would leave something missing in her life.
Allison is the Hospital Administrator for South Anderson Veterinary Clinic. She graduated from Liberty University with her Masters of Business Administration in 2019. Allison then headed to Chicagoland to work in a nationally-recognized brand strategy firm, where she had clients such as McDonald’s, AANA, and twoinspireyou. But when Dr. Eddleman offered her the chance to come work at SAVC, where she started working in the kennels at age 15, there was no way she could say no to the opportunity to come home.
You may not see her very often, since she's usually tucked away in an office, typing away, but you may glimpse her clicking around the practice in her high heels, on a mission to find some piece of paperwork. She helps Dr. Eddleman run the business side of the practices: everything from HR and marketing to bookkeeping and number-crunching. If you have a question that doesn’t deal with a dosage of something, Allison can usually answer it, or she will help you find the answer. Outside of work, you can find her hosting a dinner party, where her Great Dane Winzig Diesel and red tabby Chico will join everyone at the table (invited or not), curled up with a book, or upside down in a yoga pose.
She grew up in Moonsville, IN where she was surrounded by horses, ponies, cats, dogs and even helped raise an orphaned squirrel. She enjoyed teaching her boys how to take care of animals as well. She loves spending time with her two sons Steven and Andrew as well as her two furry kids Lucky and Savannah. In her spare time she collects antique bottles, makes stained glass art, cross stitches and enjoys reading.
I was born and raised in Anderson, Indiana. In 2019, I graduated from International Business College with an Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology. I have 3 dogs and 3 Guinea pigs at home. During my time off, I love to spend time with my husband and with my son Alex.
From a young age, I always wanted to help animals and was fascinated by all the different species. Growing up in the country, we always had animals coming and going and I would take care of them no matter what my mom said. So animals were always a big part of my life, but I didn’t know I wanted to join the veterinary field until my junior year of high school when I took a class called veterinary careers which allowed me to shadow at several veterinary clinics/hospitals and that’s when I fell in love with the veterinary field.
Today, my favorite part of the job is client communication and education.
I grew up in South Carolina and graduated in 2021 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. I moved to Anderson after getting married. I have an 8-month-old goofball Great Pyrenees Mix named Orion. I enjoy taking him on any new trails I can find. I’ve joined the vet field because of my interests in the science field and my love of animals. My favorite part of the job is getting to see the same animals visit after visit.
I’m from Alexandria, and I have 2 cats at home. When I’m not working, I’m spending quality time with my fiancé or planning our wedding.
I became a Registered Veterinary Technician after graduating from International Business College in 2018. I chose this field because there are a lot of animals out there needing help and if I can help in any way I want to.
I honestly feel like I became interested in the veterinary field simply because of my love for animals. However, one experience with a stray cat strengthened my want to help. At a young age, my family and I had a stray cat who had an injured leg and was very thin appear at my house. We nursed it back to health and helped her feel comfortable in her new home. Watching her heal and grow strong again made me so happy. We then found out she was pregnant and my first glance at the baby kittens and the birthing process amazed me! Before that, I knew I was interested in working with animals but that experience reaffirmed my love and desire to be a voice for the voiceless.
My favorite part of my job is watching the puppies/kittens grow up through their vaccine sets with us or seeing how thankful clients are and how relieved patients are at their recheck from a previous sick visit.
I’m from New Castle, Indiana. I graduated in 2017, and I was a part of the New Castle Veterinary Science vocational program where I interned with my own personal large animal veterinarian as well as spent my senior year at a small animal clinic. I’ve raised & shown dairy cattle my whole life. I have a 1-year-old son named Jonah with my boyfriend, Dylan. We have 2 kitties named Phoebe & Yami and a bearded dragon named Spike! I love spending my free time with my little family whether that be at a cow show or taking a walk on a local trail.
I’ve loved animals of every kind for as long as I can remember. I vividly remember being 5-6 years old trying to help nurture my grandma’s baby bunnies and kittens when she’d have new litters. And as much as I love them, I love helping them and helping their owners find the answers & providing the best care for their fur babies.
My favorite part of the job is working as a team to tackle whatever walks through the door. Whether it’s a completely repetitive day or something completely off the wall, the satisfaction of helping an animal and owner in need or distress is a completely unmatched feeling.
I am a veterinary assistant at South Anderson Veterinary Clinic. I enjoy going on road trips and traveling. I love everything fall, so carving pumpkins and drinking apple cider are my zen. I am from Anderson, Indiana, and I have a Black lab named Jackson. I joined the veterinary field in 2021. I have always dreamed of becoming someone who can help the animals who can’t help themselves. I always thought that I could be a voice for those who don’t. My favorite part about this job is seeing the look on the owner's face when you have made their fur baby feel better and able to live a happy, longer life.
My name is Emma, and I’m from Yorktown, IN. I’m currently a student at Miami University studying Biology with hopes of going to veterinary school in the future. I was a cheerleader in high school, and now I am on the waterski team at Miami. I love to travel and spend time at the lake. I have 2 dogs, Jake, a Welsh Terrier, and Rizzo, a Cavapoo.
I became a vet assistant to help me gain more experience in the veterinary field but my favorite part is the atmosphere. Every animal is different and I love helping the doctors figure out how to help each one.
My favorite part about being a vet assistant at South Anderson is the people. I have a work family that I love being a part of!
I was born and raised in Anderson, Indiana, and I graduated from Ball State University a few years ago with a Psychology degree. I have two cats, Kitty and Big Fat, and two lovable, energetic boxers named Agnes and Millie. When not at work, you can find me spending time with my fiance, playing with my nieces and nephews, and hanging out with my friends.
I joined the veterinary field because I love animals. I specifically chose SAVC because my pets have come here since I was little, and I loved the care that they received. My favorite part of the job is the people I work with and seeing all the puppies and kittens.
I'm currently a Ball State student studying biology, and in my free time, I love reading and binge-watching TV shows. Right now I have a shepherd mix dog who is definitely an oversized lap dog. I have always found animal science interesting, and this is what really helped me choose my college degree. SAVC has taught me many useful skills in the vet medicine industry that will definitely be useful and the future. The best perk to the job has been the puppies and kittens we see daily.
I’m 22 and from Elwood. I went to Ball State for marine biology and social work. I have 3 pets at home: Scooby who is a 3-year-old Pit Bull Labrador mix, Ollie who is a 1-year-old Doberman, and Theodore (Theo for short) who is a 3-year-old kitty. When not at the office, I enjoy hiking, swimming, late evening walks, and the occasional lazy day binge-watching Netflix--all with Scooby and Ollie of course. I joined the veterinary field because I’ve always had a passion for working with animals and can relate to other fur parents. I enjoy the people I work with and the furry babies that come through the door even more!
A local girl, I graduated from Frankton High School and then Asbury University in Kentucky with a BS degree. I have lived in Indiana & Kentucky my entire life. I have been married for 21 years with 3 children: my oldest son is a Junior at Purdue University; my daughter is a full-time employee in the manufacturing industry; and my youngest son is a Senior in HS. I regularly attend a local Church of God. My family currently has 3 dogs (1 being a puppy!), 3 cats, and 44 chickens. I have been a volunteer with Madison County 4H for over 4 years and am an active leader in the Poultry Department.
A few of my side hobbies include doing puzzles, playing with dirtbikes & trucks, and being outdoors doing anything! I am in the veterinary field because of the fur & fluff, and the wagging tails!
I am a Halloween fanatic, and I love anything true crime! My favorite beverage is anything that involves coffee. I joined the veterinary field because I love animals. I currently have a sassy kitty and a chunky bunny at home. My favorite part of working at a vet clinic is getting to love on all the adorable animals! When I'm not at work, you'll find me dancing and spending lots of time outdoors.
I was born in Idaho, lived in the Philippines and Japan, and was raised here in Indiana since the second grade. I’m really into football ( Bear Down!) and boxing. I have two dogs at home named Lola and Bo. I have a daughter that absolutely loves animals as much as I do.
Growing up I always wanted to become a veterinarian and work with animals. After working in the law enforcement field for most of my adult life, I decided to finally pursue what I wanted to do in life. Just like learning about people, I get to learn more about the animals that come into the clinic and get to see all their personalities.
My favorite part of the job is seeing all the types of different animals and all their personalities. I really enjoy learning about different breeds and what each animal that comes into the clinic is like.
