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.

Pot and your Pet!!

Dr. Adam Eatroff, (ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital – Los Angeles) explains the negative effects of marijuana and edibles in pets!

Captain Kappie’s Immune-Mediated Polyarthritis

Captain Kappie came in through our South Bay Emergency Department for non-weight bearing lameness of his left front leg and a mysterious skin condition that developed shortly after he started treatment with an NSAID to manage his lameness.

Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Stefanie Owczarczak, Dr. Jodi McKenna, and Dr. James Kim, a diagnosis of IMPA, or Immune-Mediated Polyarthritis, was made, explaining the lameness.

Based on biopsy results, the mysterious skin condition was thought to be a reaction to a commonly prescribed non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication reminding us all that, like people, pets can have reactions to prescription medications too! After 36 hours in the hospital, discontinuation of the NSAID, and initiating immunosuppressive treatment, Captain Kappie was back to normal. Dr. Marlene Townsell, an Internal Medicine specialist, is now managing Captain Kappie’s care, making sure he’s comfortable and his immune system stays in check!

 

Ike’s Day in South Bay…

Ike came in for a splenectomy and soft palate resection with our board-certified surgeon, Dr. James Kim, and is doing great! He has such an amazing demeanor and our ACCESS South Bay staff absolutely loves him.

Warm Hugs in the South Bay ER!

Jessica is one of the many amazing team members at ACCESS South Bay and she brought her own cat, Honey, in for a recheck. Honey loves hugs and had a great day with her mom at work!

A Few Seconds with Randy…

It’s no secret that we’re very busy during the day. Luckily, we were able to catch Randy, a team member at ACCESS South Bay, for a few seconds to chat.

Sparks Are Flying in The South Bay!

We’ve made a ton of progress with the construction of our new home in the South Bay and we can’t wait to see it finished! Until then, we’re still open 24×7 at 2325 Torrance Boulevard.

Halloween is Serious Business at ACCESS

Over the years, we’ve learned that our ghoulishly great staff loves all things Halloween!

Our annual pumpkin carving contest became beastly and this year we switched things up to…no carve art!

This little video gives you a peek inside our haunted hospital and shows you just a bit of how much we enjoy Halloween.
