About Dr. Hasty: I have wanted to be a vet since 4th grade. Animals have always been a great love for me and I feel priviledged to be part of this profession. I grew up in Serena and now live in Ottawa with my husband and two young daughters Eleanor and Iris. I’ve always done my shopping in Peru and love hiking at Starved Rock State Park. I purchased Progress Park Veterinary Hospital in January 2012 and I am proud to be part of such a great team. Some of my special interests are dental care, pain management, and behavior. Talking to clients and learning about their individual needs and families is the best part of my job. That’s why our tag line is Helping People, Healing Pets.

About Dr. Blair:
Born and raised in Peru, I am ecstatic to be joining the Progress Park Veterinary team. Family has told me I wanted to be a veterinarian since I could say the word! I was always trying to take in new pets, and grew up with dogs, hamsters, toads, turtles, and a rabbit. I started my career at a mixed animal clinic in Northwestern Illinois, and truly appreciated all aspects of veterinary medicine. One minute was a new kitten exam, the next could have been a horse emergency. My interests in small animal general practice has continued to grow, and I look forward to this progression in my career. I am passionate about client education and preventative care. I find the bond made with a client through their pet’s lifetime is the ultimate reward in everything I do.
