Elf on the Shelf

See what the Guardian Animal Medical Center Elf on the Shelf has been up to!

Guardian Animal Medical Center is excited to announce that we have an intern that will be with us for the next few weeks. The skills seem to be good and fortunately, the intern brought their own mask and stethoscope. But unfortunately, the intern has forgotten their name. Suggestions on a name?
