April BRVC Employee of the Month: Michelle Ouellette

Like many people who work at BRVC, Michelle Ouellette has felt drawn to animals all her life. Michelle grew up in Contra Costa County and worked for several years in the mortgage industry. But she didn’t truly feel satisfied. It was her special connection to animals that led her to the realization that what she really wanted to do was work with animals. She left her job and registered at a veterinary technician school in order to pursue her dream.

Ask Your Vet: Food Allergies by Stefanie Wong, DVM

Allergies are, no doubt, one of the more frustrating things we see – for the pets, who are constantly itching and uncomfortable, for the owners, who are kept awake by the itching/chewing and find themselves visiting the veterinarian over and over again, and for veterinarians – because it’s not a simple fix.


Paws Saved!

Max is a typical Labrador retriever—sweet, lovable, and very active. One day he was so excited to get started on his daily jog he just hit the ground running (on the asphalt)! Pretty standard behavior for most dogs! But he may have been a little too eager that morning or maybe the asphalt was a little rougher than usual because this time he injured himself. After his jog he started walking on his tip toes and Max’s owner knew something was wrong.
