The Hospital Staff

Veterinary Technician

Glendale Smalle Animal Hospital Staff

Veterinary technicians assist veterinarians in providing care to animals. They perform routine laboratory and clinical procedures, such as taking blood, giving medication, and performing medical tests, all under the supervision of a veterinarian. They are familiar with a range of high-tech diagnostic equipment and can provide specialized nursing care for injured or ill animals. They are also responsible for recording an animal's history, as well as information on its weight, food intake, diet, behavior, and other symptoms, which is a necessary tool in diagnosing an animal's illness and developing a treatment plan.

The veterinary technician makes sure that the patients are comfortable and in a clean environment.  They keep a close eye out for the critical patients and inform the veterinarian of any changes in the patient's condition.

Veterinary Reception

Glendale Small Animal Hosptial Staff

Our courteous and attentive reception staff will greet you and get all the necessary paperwork in order to make sure your check-in runs smoothly.

The receptionist reviews the chart prior to the doctor so they can inform the doctor if any vaccines or other annual or routine treatments are needed.

Since we are "appointment only", the receptionist can make an appointment that is best suited for you and your pet. The reception staff, along with the doctors, try to keep as close as possible to the schedule. Sometimes there are walk- in emergencies that need to be seen immediately. These instances are beyond our control and we ask for your patience. We would hope you would understand the situation and know that if your animal was in need of immediate medical attention we would do the same for you in an emergency.

The receptionists are knowledgeable and can give you "after-care" information upon picking your pet up from surgery. They provide you with an information sheet with all the care directions you need for home recuperation. Should you have any questions, you are always welcome to call us. We are here to assist you and to help your pet recover smoothly.
