“I joined ADC in October 2008 after finally finishing college and lots of traveling. After my travels I didn’t know what to do or where to go but a friend told me ADC was opening a clinic in Pasadena and they needed a tech. My employment at ADC has been a very rewarding and exciting chapter in life. I look forward to getting to work (minus the traffic), there is always a great atmosphere in the clinic which makes the work hours enjoyable, and since I’ve been here since we opened, I have a very close connection with our furry friends and their parents. Besides being an animal lover I am very family/friends oriented, so you’ll always find me running around doing all kinds of things with my loved ones: horseback riding, hiking, cooking and recently, biking. I share my home with many different beings, but my favorite individuals are our 3 dogs, cat, parrot and an awesome opossum, Santiago.”

Dogs have a sense of smell that is one of the keenest in nature. Humans might smell a pot of stew cooking on the stove, but a dog can distinguish the smells of each individual ingredient, from the beef itself to the potatoes.
