Hear From Our Team Members

Perlita Diaz

"Getting to experience ophthalmology in a partner clinic, I'm learning so many new things that I didn't even know were possible for animals. I love that the stuff I'm learning I'm bringing back to the clinic that helped me start all of this and I'm teaching my tech team. We're feeding off of each other. All of this knowledge and trying to help each other just get better."

Perlita Diaz Veterinary Technician, Eye Care for Animals
Jacob Cole Veterinary Assistant
​​​​​​​"Every day is a new and exciting opportunity to learn a new skill or valuable piece of information that can benefit the hospital as a whole. Whether it be learning to read an ultrasound or radiograph or simply just holding a pet for a blood draw, every little thing I do makes all the difference in the long run."
Jacob Cole Veterinary Technician Assistant, Leesburg Veterinary Hospital
"Purr-ental Leave was a huge factor in our decision to adopt our tiny monsters [cat siblings]. I can't think of anywhere else I've worked that would be willing to give time off for this."
Megan Phillips, RVT Vetspire Quality Assurance Analyst
"I've taken advantage of the opportunity [filling in at hospitals in my ecosystem] to expand my knowledge, grow my skills, get out of my comfort zone and help my team mates in the ecosystem at the same time."
Dan Garcia Veterinary Technician, A Pet's Choice Veterinary Care
