Veterinary AssistantBryan W.

He obtained a B.S. in media arts from the Art Institute of Orange County. He is currently attending Heritage College, working on his RVT license. He got into the veterinary field because he finds the medicine aspect of it interesting and diverse. He thinks the cases are fun to work on and no two pets or problems are the same; every day is different pet with a different solution. He has two pets of his own: a naughty young cat named Mojo-Jojo and little old princess Shepard mix named Sasha. In his words, “they are both the joy and grief in my world.” He enjoys working in an animal hospital because the people are well educated, caring individuals and perfect for this type of work. He enjoys seeing cases of patients that come in ill and/or injured and watch as the patients become healthy with our treatments. He enjoys the joy to see pet owners happy with our hospital and doctors as well as the joy to have pets happy to see us. In his spare time he enjoys art, surfing, swimming, and visiting zoo’s and museums.
