    MaCinda Horton
    Veterinary Tech School: Anthem

    MaCinda came into this field almost 7 years ago and joined the team here at VCA Elliot Park Animal Hospital in 2011, and she loves it. Her and her husband are the proud parents of 3 amazing kids, 5 rambunctious pups, and a kitty who runs them all. She feels that all pets are special and since she can't adopt them all, she hopes you will let her share in helping you care for yours.
