    Greetings- I am Nayay and I am very happy to be a part of the VCA Tanglewood family.  I grew up near the Serengeti Plains and Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and have been raising and caring for many types of animals all my life-dog and cats, but also my cows, goats, sheep, donkeys, and all of the forest creatures.  Now I mainly take care of my 2 sweet young sons, my energetic 2 yr-old Chocolate Lab Boma at home, and loving care of your wonderful four-legged family members here at the hospital.  You can usually find me in the kennel. or assisting the doctors and techs.  I truly love animals, and look forward to meeting yours!
