To celebrate Chicago Exotics Animal Hospital's 18th year in business we are starting a new series! We want you to know us as well as we know your pets! Each month we will spotlight one of our epic staff members!
Dr. Susan Horton
Alias: Sue, Boss (if you're Erica), Suezinni, Empress Supreme (it really is her official title)
Born: Funny story, she was nearly born over international waters while her parents were returning from Japan! The plane landed and our fearless leader was born in the great state of Texas.
Catchphrase: "You're killing me!"
Actual Quote She Wanted Featured: "It was my dream to have an exotics hospital that provided the top of the line, state of the art medicine and surgery that was the best in the nation"
Favorite Part of Veterinary Medicine: Surgery, complicated medical cases, and the snuggles from the patients
Favorite Past Times: Sue, her husband, and her band of friends have an annual haunted cabin tradition that in the past has involved scavenger hunts, fence hopping, and assorted shenanigans she refuses to let me list here. She also gardens like crazy and tends her beautiful orchids (her favorite if her husband is reading this!). Her favorite place to travel is Arizona at least once a year.
Favorite Animal: Cowfish!
Third Favorite: Squid
Notable Activities & Laurels: She built Chicago Exotics from a dream November 25, 2000 and rented space from BluePearl Veterinary Partners(aka Animal 911) until April 2015 when she moved her legacy into it's very own building! She is the Past President of Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians, Consultant on Veterinary Information Network, and the Medical Director of Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue and Red Door.
