We are sad to announce the retirement of Dr. Mike Bahr. He has touched the hearts of many, both 4 legged and 2 legged. We will miss him dearly and wish him the best of luck in this next stage of his life. Dr. Bahr’s final day will be June 30th, 2015.
A message from Dr. Bahr-
From monkeys to mice, all sizes and breeds of dogs and cat, bulls to pot belly pigs and snakes to turtles, this has been a wonderful veterinary career. Thank you all for entrusting me to care for your amazing animals. It is hard to believe that thirty four years have passed by so quickly. I have had the pleasure of seeing grandchildren of some of my first clients bringing in their new pets. We have shared in the joy of new life and the sorrow of losing our dear companions. It is with mixed emotions that I leave. I am excited about the future ahead and the sadness of missing the Hastings Veterinary Clinic.
The future involves moving to Minneapolis to finally live with my husband, Morrie. It will be great to travel, bike, hike and get in more scuba diving. We have a new grandson Ezra, due in October. I look forward to volunteering and giving back to the community in many ways. So once again I thank you all. It has been an honor and privilege to have known you and your furry families.
All My Best,
Dr. Mike Bahr
