I then returned to the Santa Cruz area, and have worked in small animal hospitals in Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey counties. I decided early in my career that I wanted to focus exclusively on the primary care of dogs and cats. My special interests include internal medicine, geriatric care, and feline medicine. While I greatly enjoyed the very dynamic atmosphere of small animal hospitals, I am excited to offer my services in the calmer and more focused environment of the home. I enjoy getting to know people and their pets, and believe establishing a relationship of trust, compassion and understanding contributes greatly to the quality of care pets receive.
