Dr. Regina Anderson was born and raised in southwest Iowa. Her childhood pets included dogs, hamsters, mice, fish, a rabbit, and a ferret. She decided to be a veterinarian when she was in middle school and came home to find her ferret Fuzzy was sick. She called every vet in town and they either didnt treat exotics or they were closed for the day. Her mom promised to help her find a vet for him the next day but he didnt make it. Since then she has wanted to save all the Fuzzies of the world.
