Gobble ’till you wobble!

Our San Fernando Valley veterinary team kicked off their Thanksgiving celebrations one day early with a potluck where many employees contributed delicious cookies, cakes, sides, and even a tofurkey!

Here’s our team of dedicated supporters helping to prepare the feast.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Nephrology…

Our build-out continues!

Since demolition and the waterline installation, we’ve installed a new wall, put our cabinetry and desk space back up in a way that will work specifically for the Nephrology team, and our brand new sink is in working order!

Over the years, we’ve been excited to see our hospital grow and transform and the past few weeks have been no exception. We are so lucky to be able to provide hemodialysis and Nephrology to the people and pets of the Los Angeles area and simply cannot wait until we can begin treating patients here!

Stay tuned for more updates!

Tails from the road… Paws in the sand.

Sometimes when visiting veterinarians in Malibu, the ACE crew has to press “paws” and take in the view along PCH. On a warm November day, how can you not wish you had more time to soak up the sun and stick your claws in the sand!

Congratulations to Shea and Alex!

We would like to congratulate both Shea and Alex of the ACCESS Los Angeles team for being promoted to Client Care Shift Supervisors!

They both started out as Client Care Representatives and quickly excelled, showing leadership, knowledge, and compassion during every shift.

We’re happy to see our employees promoted from within and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them!



Nephrology Breaks New Ground

We were so excited to see the beginning transformation of our Nephrology Department!

We began construction to run water and drainage lines to the new treatment area for our sinks and three dialysis machines and sealed up the flooring over top of them.

What’s next you ask? Stay tuned for more updates!






Tails from the road… Dr. Buks joins in!

Dr. Yonathan Buks, our newest surgery doctor in Woodland Hills, joined me on the road visiting primary veterinarians in the San Fernando Valley recently!

He shook hands, kissed puppies, and delivered some tasty treats to let them know he is available to help with any surgeries that might come their way.

Thanks for the company Dr. Buks, it is always nice to be able to use the carpool lane, learn about cool procedures, and have someone else to talk to besides myself.
