Tony Tramutola, Family Pet Animal Hospital’s longest standing staff member and one of our Technician Managers, was awarded the FPAH Most Valuable Player (MVP) for January 2017 by last month’s winner, Emily Olvera. Tony joined the Family Pet team as a teenager back in 1990 just after the practice first opened. He is an incredibly skilled, no nonsense technician and manager that our doctors and staff call on for assistance incessantly. Around here, he is often referred to as “Dr. Tony” for his wealth of knowledge and experience. He may not have a DVM degree but he is certainly invaluable to our team.
His patience and skill with especially scared or aggressive dogs has earned him the title of “dog whisperer.” Many of our clients request him by name to be the technician to handle their pets when they come to see us, knowing he “speaks their language.”
QUESTION AND ANSWER WITH TONY (he is a man of few words):
Do you have pets? If so, tell us about him/her/them.
Yes. Tank is a pitbull mix and full of energy.
What is the moment at FPAH of which you are the most proud?
Working here for 26+ years.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Playing video games, watching TV, and taking long walks with Tank.
How would you spend one million dollars?
Buy a house and car and eat well.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
When someone says something happened a million times (over-exaggeration).
What would you choose for your last meal?
New York strip steak and baked potato.
Congratulations, Tony! Tony will pick next month’s FPAH MVP for February, so stay tuned…
