Tails from the Road – Boys and Girls and Veterinarians!

Dr. Danielle Sawyer from our Emergency and Critical Care Department at ACCESS LA recently spoke at the Boys and Girls Club in Mar Vista about what it’s like being a vet!

The kids were the ages of 6 & 7 and some of them weren’t really familiar with the word veterinarian but understood what an animal doctor was.  They had tons of energy and asked lots of questions.

Dr. Sawyer even brought her own cat for them to pet and “examine.”  We also handed out winter pet safety tips for them to bring back home.  Maybe one of them will go to vet school some day!

Senior Pet Love…

This is Gayle. She works hard to keep her patients happy and this was no exception! She made a comfy carrier for this senior dog who was afraid when she was alone in her kennel. Thank you for being so sweet, Gayle!

Big Love for a Big Dog…

CPR is a breath of fresh air in Northridge and Chatsworth!

Dr. Jen Stewart, one of our emergency and critical care doctors at ACCESS San Fernando Valley, recently gave two lunch and learns for the staffs at the Banfield Pet Hospitals in Northridge and Chatsworth!

She covered the steps of performing CPR, with a hands-on component where the staff practiced on Jerry, our CPR dummy dog (pictured). She gave tips and advice on what to do when CPR is needed, so it’s always great to have a refresher course on what to do in a stressful situation.

Tails from the road – Strut Your Mutt!

The ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital team was at the Strut Your Mutt event put on by the Best Friends Animal Society held at Exposition Park.

It was a great time to get the word out about all of our hospitals as people came from all over raise money for their furry friends. We even had some employees stop by our booth so it was great to have their support.

All in all, it was a wonderful cause, and we look forward to participating next year!
