A Few Seconds with Jonathan…

It’s no secret that we’re very busy during the day. Luckily, we were able to catch Jonathan, a team member at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital, San Fernando Valley, for a few seconds to chat!

What is Ultrasound?

Dr. Elana Hadar explains how ultrasound works and what we commonly use it for in this quick video! Dr. Hadar’s professional interests include gastroenterology, immune disorders, and oncology, and is an active member of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and the American Veterinary Medical Association.

A Few Seconds with…Ayaka!

Tails from the Road – Tech Life at Mt. SAC

ACCESS department leads Kristine Snow and Karina Gomez spoke at Mt. SAC about life as RVTs to a group of students in the tech program.

They spoke about their respective fields if interest and also about what they look for in employees who join us. They gave out tips and advice and the students eagerly soaked up what they could. Maybe they will come work with us one day! We will surely be back to talk to more students too in the future.

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!

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.
