  • Tracey
    Tracey Swartz

    Tracey joined the staff of Old Troy Pike Veterinary Clinic in 1976 when she was in 7th grade and started as an after school volunteer. She considers herself lucky to find a life's calling at such a young age. What appeals to Tracey the most about her job is helping people and their pets. She considers it to be an honor and a privilege to be able to care for people's furkids. Her days at the clinic are full of puppy and kitten kisses, but there are also tears when the staff helps a pet take its final journey. During Tracey's free time she enjoys gardening, reading, connecting with family on a thread and hanging with her furkids Milile and Hobo. They are rescue kitties and keep her life full of snuggles and laughter. Tracey says she feels blessed to work with very talented and loving staff members. They are like family who always have each others' backs in good times and bad. Tracey sees her life as a choice of the road less traveled, and she looks back and knows she wouldn't change a thing.
