Becky Dugas, CVT
Becky Dugas, CVT received her license in Veterinary Technology in 1996 and has worked in veterinary hospitals since 1994. She has been employed with Eagle Animal Clinic since its opening in March of 2000, and is currently the Hospital Manager. One of the many things that she has enjoyed while at Eagle Animal Clinic has been the ability to get to know and care for clients’ pets, from kitten and puppyhood into their senior years. Becky grew up on a family farm outside of Weiser, Idaho and has always had a passion and love for all animals. She raised her first bottle kitten at the age of 10, and still enjoys doing it today. She currently resides in Sand Hollow with her husband, Larry, and two daughters, Clara and Grace. Her family lives on a few acres out in the country where they have room for their menagerie of pets that includes dogs, cats, chickens, bunnies, goats, horses, one pony, and one very old, retired 4-H cow. Becky and her family enjoy being outdoors; fishing, camping, hiking, spending time at their family cabin, riding ATVs, riding horses, and even doing yard work. Becky also enjoys volunteering at her daughters’ schools and she’s an avid reader who has fallen in love with her Kindle!
Nichole joined the staff of Eagle Animal Clinic in 2008 as a full time Receptionist. In 2013, she was promoted to the role of Client Care Manager. She has over 8 years of experience manning the front desk in veterinary offices, so she’s seen it all! Nichole enjoys visiting with the “regulars” that she’s come to know over the past several years (she likes talking with their people, too!), but also appreciates the opportunity to meet new faces as well. She also continues to enjoy the teaching environment the clinic and veterinary field provides.
Nichole is the proud mom of “Parker”, a black Standard Poodle and “One-Eyed Jack”, a crazy cat with only one eye. When not at work, you can find her spending quality time with family and friends or traveling with her husband.
Jen started at Eagle Animal Clinic in May of 2013. She has over four years of previous animal care experience working in a variety of environments, including a Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center and a Non-Profit, No-Kill Cat Shelter.

Val moved to Idaho with her family from Connecticut in 2000. Almost immediately, they joined the Eagle Animal Clinic family as clients. A couple of years later, she was asked to join the staff of Eagle Animal Clinic and became a part time receptionist. Val works mostly on the administrative side now, and helps wherever she is needed.
“Charlie”, her loyal canine companion was adopted from the Canyon County Shelter. When not at work, she is exploring new places to walk with “Charlie”, reading or crocheting.
Lanae has been part of the Eagle Animal Clinic family since she started working as an after school kennel assistant in 2003. Now, years later, she still enjoys the relationships that have developed with both the patients and clients. Working at Eagle Animal Clinic has given her a desire to continue learning new things.
Being a native Idahoan, and raised in Eagle, makes working with her community even more satisfying. Lanae also has a treasured dog named “Guy” who seems to enjoy accompanying her to work.
Hannah began working in the veterinary field in 2000. In 2008, she joined the staff of Eagle Animal Clinic as an Animal Health Technician.

She continues to enjoy the ever changing and evolving field of veterinary medicine and has a special interest in the area of canine and feline pain management.
Hannah, a native Idahoan, resides in Eagle with her husband, four children, and two dogs. When not working, Hannah is kept busy running to and from her kids’ schools and sporting activities and, in those rare, quiet moments, she loves to relax and unwind with a good book.
