Veterinary Technicians

Tiffany Fryer, RVT

Emergency Services Supervisor

Like many veterinary people, I grew up knowing I wanted a career working with animals. I started as a kennel assistant over 16 years ago and worked my way up to technician and became a registered veterinary technician almost two years ago. After working in general practice for many years, I moved to specialty for almost five years, my passion being in neurology, seizure cases being my favorite cases, and emergency medicine. I have four fur babies, two dogs, Mango the French Mastiff, and Poppy, a Pit mix who also happens to be my running buddy, and two cats, Sahalie and Banana. When not at work, you can find me out training for my next triathlon or running event. Fun fact about me, I’ve completed a full Ironman, eight half Ironmans, four marathons, and many other various events.

Registered Veterinary Technicians

I recently became a Registered Veterinary Technician while working for a previous veterinary clinic and learned many skills. I yearned for more knowledge so I decided to join South Bay Animal Hospital and Pet Resort. I have been having a great time being part of the amazing staff at our hospital and operating the amazing equipment that we have especially the in-house blood test machines. On my days off, I like to read materials to gain knowledge of up-to-date veterinary technician information. When I have read too much, my cat Rasa Libre (DSH), my kitten Rocky Horror (DSH, three-legged, polydactyl), and my tarantula Cling-On (14 years old) will let me know it is time to hangout! I like to hangout with friends and family in the kitchen while we are cooking something up during a conversation. I also like to stay active with fitness or busy exploring locations big and small. One day, I hope to specialize in Clinical Pathology as I love looking at blood samples.

Registered Veterinary Technicians

Animals have always been a passion of mine. I have been working in the animal care field for 15 years, from running doggie daycare and boarding facilities to Animal Control. I decided to pursue a career in Veterinary Technology only about 5 years ago, because I felt I wanted to be more proactive in the care of animals, and am now a Registered Veterinary Technician. Although right now I primarily work with dogs and cats, reptiles and exotics are my passion. I someday hope to work in an exotics-only hospital. I also happen to own a reptile business outside of working at the vet hospital. I currently own about 60 reptiles, a guinea pig named Meatball, and my dog Mira, pictured with me.

Registered Veterinary Technician

Veterinary medicine was a career change for me. I took classes at Foothill College and got an internship as a vet tech assistant, and I never looked back. I now have over six years of experience in this field and I love what I do because I do what I love. I have been at South Bay Animal Hospital and Pet Resort for 3 years. I am proud to be a part of the original staff from our opening in 2015, and I am delighted to announce I have earned my Registered Veterinary Technician license this last year. When I'm not at the practice, I play a mean guitar, listen to as much rock and roll as I can, fix stuff around the house, and tinker with my '65 Mustang. (It will live again... eventually.) I have two rescue dogs (That’s Luna as a puppy in the picture with me), 2 cats, and a handful of assorted reptiles.
