A farewell letter from Dr. Jennifer Bagshaw

To my valued clients and patients,

I am writing this email to inform you that I have made the difficult decision to leave Hope Veterinary Specialists effective December 21st of this year.  It has been a privilege to care for your furred family members. One of the reasons I entered veterinary medicine was because of my love for animals and what I didn’t realize at the time was that one of the biggest rewards was to witness the bond between pets and their families.  I have met many wonderful people along my time at Hope and will truly miss my daily interactions with my patients.

In my absence, Dr. Laurie Prober and Dr. Rebecca Haviland will be taking over care for my patients. If you have any questions regarding the impact this may have on your pet’s care or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I am happy to review recommendations for ongoing care and to facilitate a transition for follow up either to your local veterinary practice or one of the other internists at Hope Veterinary Specialists.

I wish your families the very best in the New Year!


Jennifer Bagshaw DVM, DACVIM (Internal Medicine)


After eleven years with Hope, Dr. Jennifer Bagshaw will be leaving us in December 2018. Dr. Bagshaw has been instrumental in growing and developing the Internal Medicine service at Hope. Since joining us Dr. Bagshaw’s family has grown to include a son and two twin daughters and she has arrived at the difficult decision to pause her career so she is able to focus on her family. While we fully support Dr. Bagshaw’s decision it is not without a heavy heart that we bid her a fond farewell. Dr. Baghsaw has never faltered in providing exceptional care and devotion to her patients and we will forever be grateful to her contributions to our practice over the years.

Our internal medicine team has been preparing for Dr. Bagshaw’s departure in order to ensure a smooth transition of your pet’s care. Drs. Laurie Prober and Rebecca Haviland are both at Hope four days a week and will be able to assist you with any future patient care needs. Dr. Bagshaw’s last day will be Thursday, December 20th if you wish to send her any farewell messages!

You will be greatly missed Dr. Bagshaw!!
