Alyssa is a Veterinary Technician at Bayside Veterinary Hospital and is currently working to become an RVT this year, which she is very excited about to further her care and passion. She has 7 years in the veterinary field which all started when she was 5. Her aunt brought her along one night to an emergency clinic she worked at, it was love at first sight. Since then she has volunteered or worked with small and large animals in one way or another until she found herself inside the veterinary field doing what she loves most. Alyssa loves caring for pets with their families to help keep them healthy, around longer for them to be loved on and to help spread knowledge to their owners to provide the best care they can. When she is not working you can find her caring for her seven pets, all adopted or foster failed, and enjoying every moment with her daughter

My name is Mouse and I’m the clinic cat and feline blood donor. Most don’t know this about me but I am the actual Office Manager, SHHH don’t tell Barb! I can usually be found sleeping in various places, or laying on files they are trying to write in, or begging for treats.I have lived at Bayside since 2009, hence why my Bio picture is me as a kitten. I have been here my whole life and love all our clients, even the Canines.
