Dr. Molly McWilliams DVM, MS, CWR, is a Veterinarian at Prairie Lane Animal Hospital. She has been proudly saving the world one pet at a time since the ancient era of 2020. You may recognize her from such educational establishments as Iowa State.
Not to brag (totally bragging), but she is not your average doc! While most vets might balk at a lizard with the sniffles or a snake with an attitude, Dr. McWilliams is all over it. From the typical cats and dogs to the wilder ferrets, rabbits, turtles, chinchillas, and you get the picture, they’re all her jam.
At home, she truly leads wildlife. For Starters, there's Ryker, her husky who thinks he's the new clinic mascot. He's often found at work, trying to play "boss" but mostly failing adorably. And, then there's Neelix, the definition of a good boy. Oh' and can’t forget about her cat who’s probably plotting world domination, and her reptile room which, yes, is exactly as cool as it sounds.
On the human side, she and her husband Ben are raising a budding animal whisperer, Annika. If you hear about a new Superhero in town who can communicate with pets, you know who it is.
When she is not being a dorky vet, you can catch her defying gravity and logic with her local circus group-flying through the air and juggling fire. And if she's not airborne or setting things (responsibly) on fire, she is either chasing drones with Ben, trekking through the great outdoors, or freezing moments in time with her camera.
Music Confession: If you ever sneak a peak into our surgery room, you might be treated to a unique blend of old school rap, punk, SKA, and those songs your grandma told you to avoid.
P.S. If anyone knows a good Scrub Cap Anonymous group, let her know. She has been told that she has a "tiny" addiction.
