As the name suggests Dr. K’s Exotic Animal ER provides emergency services to exotic animals. Run by Dr. Susan Kelleher, the show airs on Nat Geo Wild and has amassed a large number of viewers. The series which began on the 4th of October 2014 is currently in its eighth season. But for all the success the series has enjoyed, it has been prone to several controversies as well. While comings and goings are a regular phenomenon on reality TV, the show once came close to being canceled following allegations from former employees. One of these departures is Tom Cronenwett who left South Florida’s Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital in not the best of ways.
Who is Tom Cronenwett?
Tom Cronenwett was born and raised in Dearborn Heights, Michigan. Holding a degree in Associate of Applied Sciences in Veterinary Technology from Bel-Rea Institute of Animal Technology, Tom moved to Huston Height, Texas.
He began his professional life as a Vet Technician at Vergi 24/7 in 2010. Following a 4-year stretch, Tom quit his job and went to the Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital. He later quit the hospital in 2018 and moved on with his life.
What happened on Dr.K?
The news of Tom’s departure came as a shock to fans of the series as he had been around for a long time. After exiting from the hospital, Tom took to Facebook to make his feelings clear.
While he did not name any names it can be said that he didn’t have the best of time in the hospital. On finding a new job he took to Facebook to express his dissatisfaction with his previous employers. His caption read,
“Very grateful for my job now! Back at a place where we see Dogs as well as Avian & Exotics. No more ego trips, multiple relatives running the place, and no more vets killing a patient three states over by giving drug dosages over the phone…allegedly”.
Where is he now? Is he married?
Tom currently works for the Westgate Pet & Bird Hospital in Austin, Texas. He serves the role of a technician and veterinary assistant at the hospital. It looks like Tom is enjoying his new employment. The hospital was founded by Paul Brandt DVM in 1986.
An animal lover, Tom currently lives in Austin, Texas with his two lovely dogs Sunshine and Kupcake.
Moreover, as we move on to his personal life he hasn’t clarified his relationship status and yes still he has been a person full of secrets. Currently, he is a single bachelor with no activity seen on his relationship matter.
