Achilles Finds A Forever Home

Achilles came to ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – Los Angeles when he was dropped off by a Good Samaritan, bloody and covered in mats. Our team shaved him down and found a gnarly injury on his hind leg. With no family and a desperate need for surgery, things were looking rough for this pup!

Luckily, Casey, an RVT in our emergency room, stepped in and adopted him. She named him Achilles, given the injury that brought them together, and after his leg was amputated, he was able to come home.

He loves his new family and gets around quite well on three legs!

Employee Appreciation BBQ…

The annual employee appreciation BBQ at ACCESS – Los Angeles this week was a blast!

Our team enjoyed some delicious barbecued food cooked up by our grill masters Dr. Rich Mills (our owner), Howard (our CEO), Beverly (our Client Care Manager), and Jimmy (a surgery team member)!

This BBQ is a tradition that started a few years ago and it’s something our LA team looks forward to each July.

ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospitals at ACVIM 2017!

We had a blast at ACVIM, which is a veterinary conference for all of the specialties under the Internal Medicine College such as cardiology, neurology, and internal medicine.

We spent two full days in our booth in the exhibit hall to meet new doctors, specialists, and technicians. It was so nice to catch up with old friends Luke and Indy from Puppy Up, and of course our veterinary pals.

Celebrating Client Care Week

We spent all week celebrating the efforts of our Client Care team with new treats each day! We love our team and we’re fortunate to work with them each and every day.
