and his friend, Emma.

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, our four children, and I 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 that share the same passion for animals and for providing the best veterinary care. I am honored to serve our clientele and their beloved pets. Welcome to Care Animal Hospital!

Dr. Miriam Flock


and her friends Koda & Harris

Born and raised in Pleasanton, California, animals have always been a part of my life, starting with the family cats and dog. I joined 4-H at an early age, where I had the opportunity to care for animals of all shapes and sizes, from goats to horses to guinea pigs. During my 4-H years, my love for all creatures great and small inspired me to pursue veterinary medicine with the goal of working with exotics.

I received a B.S. in Animal Science from Cal Poly, SLO and then continued with my veterinary studies at the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

I am glad to be back in California and look forward to starting my journey with the Care Animal Hospital team to help your pets live their best lives.

with her friend Lucifer

I have been passionate about veterinary medicine since I was a little girl. I started at a small practice in 2012 in Orange County while going to college at California State Univeristy of Fullerton. I learned all the basic fundamentals of working in a hospital and it made me fall even more in love with this field. I eventually got promoted to lead technician and manager. After 8 years with that practice, I was ready for new beginnings and growth to expand my knowledge. I am so grateful to lead the team at Care Animal Hospital. I am so excited to work with exotics!

In my free time, I love spending time with my 3 children. I love being a mom. We have 3 dogs (Luna, Lily and Lola), a cat named Snow, and a chicken named Twizzler. We love being outdoors, the beach, Disneyland, shopping and spending time with family. We hope to own a ranch some day!

Sydney (Reception Supervisor)

with her friends Pumpkin, Popcorn & Peanut

I started working in the Veterinary field in 2016, and joined the team at Care Animal Hospital in 2021. I have always loved animals, and have had a love for guinea pigs since first grade, when I read a book about them. I have a heart for wildlife conservation and was attracted to Care Animal Hospital because of the association with Project Wildlife.

I share my home with the guinea pigs, and my cats Nemo & Dalia.

Lisa (Technician Supervisor)

and her friend, Lulu.

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 and 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 that God has placed this passion in my heart and blessed me with becoming part of the “Care family.” I strongly feel I’ve finally found a place to call home and where they all really do Care.


Amanda (Technician Supervisor)

I have always had a love for animals, and decided to make it her career.  I have been in the Veterinary industry for 8 years, and graduated in 2019 from Platt College.

I love working with our patients and clients.  I enjoy being a part of the Care Animal Hospital team, and can say that it feels like an extended family.  I am also a busy Mom who shares my home with my two children, Joey, and my cat, DiVinci.

Londyn, R.V.T.

and her friend, Scarlet.

Since I was young I have always had a love for all types of animals, but it was not until I started working at Care Animal Hospital that I knew I wanted to pursue a career in this field.

It has been such a great experience seeing a wide variety of animals each day, and assisting in caring for them is very rewarding. I enjoy working alongside the rest of our staff and hope I can take what I learn and become a veterinary technician.

I currently live with my two kitties Flynn and Nala, and hope to adopt more animals needing homes in the future.

with her friend Lucky

Ever since I was a little girl, I always knew that when I grew up I wanted to work with animals. As I’ve grown, I have realized that working in the veterinary field is my passion, and working at Care has definitely solidified that.

I graduated from Platt College’s Registered Veterinary Technician program as a vet tech and came to work at Care immediately after. I love helping all the cute pets that come in and knowing I can help them, is very rewarding to me.platt

In my free time, I enjoy horseback riding and spending time with my family. I have a Min Pin named Lucky, who I enjoy spending time with.


with an owlette being transferred to Project Wildlife

I joined the Care Animal Hospital team in January of 2022. I’ve always had a strong lifelong passion for all animals, with an emphasis on exotics, wildlife & conservation. As a veterinary assistant here, I have the privilege of working with and caring for so many incredible animals daily, both the pets & the wildlife rescues that we receive.

Before working at Care, I have been involved in wildlife rescue for over 6 years, and I am now currently in training to become a certified wildlife rehabilitator. I do my work with wildlife in conjunction with Project Wildlife & several rehabilitators throughout Southern California to assure our wildlife gets the proper protection & care that they need, when they need it.  

At home, I have two friendly leopard geckos with big personalities; one is a male named Gekyume, & the other is a female named Lasagna.

Ashley joined our team in June of 2022.  She has 8 years Veterinary Experience, and has completed the Veterinary Assistant Certification from Mt San Jacinto College

with her friends Beans and Haku

I have had a love for animals since I can remember, and it’s a dream come true that I am able to work and help them in any way possible. Just knowing that I was able to make a difference in someone’s life brings me an immense level of personal joy. I have only been doing receptionist work for the last two years, but I absolutely love being part of this team and I am so fortunate that I got this opportunity to learn and grow. Everyday is a new opportunity to learn something new.
When I am not working, I like to hang out and play with my own kitties: Artemis, Luna and Binx. And when I am not spending time with animals, I like to play video games, watch movies, write sad poetry, stargaze, daydream and I have a penchant for makeup/beauty/cosplay that I like to use as an outlet to express myself artistically.
