Hello My name is Heather I am the Practice Manager, I have been at Alta Loma Animal Hospital now for 15 years. I started here as a receptionist/tech, I floated around wherever my help was needed. I love what I do and couldn’t fathom doing anything else. I have been in the veterinary field for 18 years, and have helped a number of pets, from dogs and cats up to sheep, and horses. It is never a boring job! Something new happens every day. I love seeing families reunited when they come pick up a pet we’ve had and there are smiles and tail wags and happy meows. I have multiple dogs and cats.....too many :) To all of our old clients who know me and to new clients coming in I look forward to seeing you and your furry family members!
Hi My name is Caroline and I am a receptionist at Alta Loma Animal Hospital. I started here back in 2008 going back and forth from reception to tech work. I stayed for 6 years and then took a break to finish up my schooling. I learned so much during those years and working with this wonderful family here, that I changed my major to veterinary school. I heard that they were hiring again and immediately applied, so now I am back as a receptionist. I am currently applying to vet schools in the hope of one day being a Veterinarian here at Alta Loma.
