Like many Penn Vet alumni,Peter Vogel, V’90, always knew he wanted to be a veterinarian. He also knew that he wanted to receive his education and training at a school with a strong small-animal program. Dr. Vogel had a great experience as a Penn Vet student and credits Dr. Meryl Littman, Dr. Dean Richardson, and Dr. Robert Washabau as being particularly influential in his decision to focus on surgery. “Everyone really wanted to see you succeed,” notes Dr. Vogel about the support and guidance he received as a student, including that from a notable hospital intern at the time, current Dean Joan Hendricks.
