    Alexis Tetrick
    Veterinary Tech School: Penn Foster

    Alexis joined the VCA LAH team in December 2013.  She transferred to us from VCA East Anchorage.  Alexis also volunteered with the humane society for 2 years and worked in dairy at Berry College for 2 years.  She was an Animal Science Major at Berry College for 2 years and is currently enrolled at Penn Foster in the Veterinary Technician program.

    Alexis is the proud pet parent of a 1 year old Golden Retriever/Husky Mix named Ruby.  She enjoys going to the park with her husband and dog on her off days.

    "I enjoy working with animals because it is a challenge.  You only have so much information to go on and pets can't tell us exactly what might be bothering them.  I like that we are essentially the voice for pets in guiding owners of what their pet needs.  I also have simply always had a strong love & desire to work with animals and people that share my passion."


Specialty Care

When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.
