  • Lee

    Hi my name is Lee Nagy, I'm the groomer at Dix Animal Hospital and have been since 2007. Ever since I was a child I enjoyed spending time with my pets. I would teach them tricks, give them baths and trim the hair from their eyes, etc. I have had a variety of pets through the years, from cats, dogs and rabbits, to mice and lizards. I currently have a rescue dog named combo, simply because he is a mixed breed ( shih-tzu/maltese). I also have a cat named Tic-Tac, because she was so tiny when I found her. I simply just enjoy all their furry little personalities. I am the only groomer at Dix Animal Hospital so an appointment is needed. Also our facility does not accommodate large breeds for grooming but we do for boarding. I'm always available to speak to a client about their needs and wants for their fur babies. I can never stress enough about how important grooming is for your pets health. A clean/healthy pet, is a very happy pet

I found Dix Animal Hospital, and they offered me a job in the surgery room. The people here are very nice. They are helping me learn English, as well as teaching me new advances in veterinary medicine. I love and appreciate the opportunity to work with the team and to learn all the specialized surgeries Dix Animal Hospital offers.

I began working at Dix Animal Hospital in 2020 during the summer and my free weekends while studying to be a future Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University. I am lucky to work with such a talented team, where I can apply my learned knowledge and also be inspired by the immense knowledge of our doctors here. I have a love for small animal practice, where I can create a personal relationship with each sweet pet and owner, and also a love for shelter medicine. My family just adopted a 7-year-old Pomeranian named Sebastian and he is our world. There is truly nothing like bringing a better life to an animal in need and accepting their non-judgmental, unconditional love in return. I try to bring this passion into every day at work.
