There may be a new lady tangling with George (Justin Kirk) in this week's episode of Animal Practice, but we'd much rather hang out with JoAnna Garcia Swisher, who plays the vet hospital director. She's hot, hilarious and has a huge heart when it comes to four-legged friends. Just watch what you say about her hubby, New York Yankees star Nick Swisher!
