Dr. Alcorn

Growing up in Denver, Colorado at age eight I witnessed my dog Blackie being hit and killed by an out of control car in my front yard. I decided then to dedicate my life to helping family pets. My wife, Nancy, and I and our four children moved to Temecula in 1991 where we established our small animal and exotic practice. Dante and Amelie, our two cats, now run our lives! We enjoy visits from our “grand pets” Lola the dog and Emmett the pig as well as our “real” grandchildren. I am thankful to be part of the talented and dedicated team who share the same passion for animals in helping provide the best veterinary care. I am honored to serve our clientele and their beloved pets. Welcome to Care Animal Hospital!

Dr. Kelly Bowling - Care Animal Hospital

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, I always had a love for animals. My family was very supportive allowing my passion to expand into what was jokingly referred to as my “mini zoo”. Learning the proper way to take care of these animals inspired me. There was only one career I could imagine as my future profession: a veterinarian. To say that my dream came true doesn’t describe the satisfaction I feel each day supporting clients and providing care for their furry, scaly, and feathery family members. I am beyond excited to be a part of the Care Animal Hospital family and make true connections with my clients as I treat every patient as I would my own!

My “mini zoo” has changed over the years and now includes two furry and four finned friends. Emma is my oldest dog weighing in at 125 pounds of pure brown Newfoundland fluff. She is followed by a highly energetic but ever so sweet 60 pound hound mix named Norman. Since arriving to California our family has grown by four parrot cichlids that fit into the family seamlessly. They often watch me from their tank in the kitchen while I enjoy one of my hobbies, cooking handed-down Italian recipes.

As a recent transplant to California I look forward to making a positive impact within my new community and exploring all this beautiful state has to offer! I lived in Illinois for the majority of my life but also spent a few years in the wonderful state of Colorado. California seemed like the perfect fit for my favorite parts of both states and had the added bonus of the ocean. I truly look forward to meeting you as well as helping to keep your family healthy and happy!

As a young girl growing up in Canada I have always had a love for animals, both domestic and wild. Every summer my family and I would go to my Uncles’ cabin in Northern Ontario for several weeks. While there, I enjoyed watching the variety of wildlife that were native to that area. My hope was to someday work in the animal field. I started my career as an Officer for the San Diego County Department of Animal Control and then got the opportunity to work for Care Animal Hospital in 1998. I share my home with my cat, Jolie, aka Miss Priss and my Cockatoo, Angel. My years of working at Care Animal Hospital have been a very rewarding and challenging experience with an amazing group of team members.

Animals have always been my passion, and growing up I knew I wanted to commit my life to helping them. I am currently going to school to get my degree in zoology and hope to one day specialize to work with lions. I am owned by two rescue pitbulls, Denver and Ellie. I am so thankful to be a part of the Care Animal Hospital family and enjoy getting to work with the large variety of animals we see here on a daily basis.

Lauren Robledo - Care Animal Hospital

From a young age, working with animals was always something I was passionate about and knew I wanted to pursue as a career somehow. I have been working in the veterinary field since high school, and prior to moving to Temecula and joining the Care family, I spent over 6 years with a great veterinary team in San Diego. In 2013, I became a Registered Veterinary Technician and am now working to specialize in veterinary dentistry. I share my home with my three dogs; a lab mix named Logan and two yorkies named Jake and Koda. I also have a tabby cat named Thomas, a Russian Blue named Belle, and my sweet newly rescued kitten Ella. The fast paced work environment and constant variety of animals and wildlife makes every day exciting. I am so grateful to be a part of such an amazing team.

Kirsten

and her friend Riley

Kristen - Care Animal Hospital

I was lucky to grow up in a household full of pets as a child and knew from an early age I always wanted to work around animals. Prior to coming to Care Animal Hospital I worked as a kennel attendant and receptionist for an animal hospital in Orange County. After moving to this area and working a few years out of the veterinary field I found myself longing to work with such wonderful creatures and their owners again. I am so thankful I found such a wonderful caring office to work for with doctors and coworkers who truly care about helping animals! I am owned by 5 dogs; two German Shepherds named Riley and Kala and three Pugs named Hazel, Luna and Disco. I also have a Bengal cat named Safari and two parrots; a Senegal named Boos and a Brown-headed parrot named Munny. Besides loving to spend my time just hanging out with my fur babies, I also like to ride horses competing in hunter/jumpers, snowboard and go to Disneyland.

Kristen - Care Animal Hospital

I started my career in the veterinary field in 1996 as a kennel assistant. Within 2 years of dedicated hard work and a sincere thirst for knowledge, I became a full veterinary technician. Since then I've spent time in all different types of practices from small to large & 24 hour emergency collecting as much knowledge as possible. As a child I spent most of my time trying to understand and help animals from my own dear pets to the wild life surrounding my home. I fully believe God has placed this passion in to my heart and blessed me with becoming part of the "Care family." I strongly feel I've finally found a place to call home & where they all really do Care...

Tricia

and her friend Noah

Kristen - Care Animal Hospital

Growing up, I always knew I wanted to work with animals. As a child I had three horses named Razz, Twinkie, and Frolic who were part of my inspiration to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. I have always had a love for animals and I am currently going to school to get my degree and become a Registered Veterinary Technician. I share my home with my two lovable fur babies named Zoey, an 18 year old domestic shorthair and Noah, a rambunctious 3 month old domestic medium hair. My recent move to Murrieta brought me to Care Animal Hospital and I am so blessed to be apart of such a wonderful team.
