Our San Fernando Valley location celebrated the day with a sugar cookie bar and a super sweet message board!

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.

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.
