Patient Care

Patricia joined the LVH Team in March of 2022. Patricia loves working with a variety of animals. Being a zookeeper has broadened her understanding of the veterinarian field and animal training techniques. She hopes to establish a lifetime of caring for animals; both domestic and exotic. She has been in animal care for almost 8 years. She has worked with sloths, tamanduas, red pandas, lemurs, goats, pigs, cows, coyotes, raccoons, foxes, and raptors. She even assisted in medical procedures for a rhino and a dolphin. Training is a passion of Patricia's. She has successfully trained pigs and a sloth for voluntary injection training. She even trains a coyote, raccoon, armadillo, and owl. She is also a dog trainer and has worked with a variety of breeds for 3 years. Being a part of the LVH Team, Patricia is excited to learn more about pet health and wellness. Outside of work, she has a zoo in her house which includes a cat, a bird, a snake, and a lizard. She enjoys playing the flute and going to orchestra concerts and musicals.
