Greetings from Encina Veterinary Hospital!

The Blogger Ashley and her "nephew" Tucker

Greetings and welcome to the Encina Veterinary Hospital blog. My name is Ashley Core and I have worked for Dr. Roger Johnson for nearly 5 years, both at Encina and at our Antioch facility, East Bay Veterinary Emergency. I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up, suffice to say like all of my friends here at Encina I live to serve you and your fur-coated friends during both sickness and health. I hope that you will join me as I share the true tales (no pun intended) of our clients and patients, and reveal what happens behind our treatment room door… where you’ll never hear that it was “just another day at the office.”

This blog is also a platform for your questions, comments, and stories, please e-mail me at or comment below the blog posts. This blog will be updated a minimum of three times per week, so please subscribe to our RSS feed or and check back for new posts regularly. Thank you for reading, I look forward to sharing our unique world with you!
