Amaris Franco, Staff Veterinarian

Practice Limited - Critical Care

Emergency Department, Critical Care

Undergrad school: Bachelors of Science in Biology from Cal State Los Angeles.
Veterinary school:
Western University; Class of 2012.
Veterinary Emergency + Critical Care in Las Vegas (sister hospital of and attached to the Las Vegas Veterinary Specialty Center). I did my internship there (2012-2013) and stayed on for a residency in Emergency and Critical Care (2013-2016). 
Why did you choose to become an emergency veterinarian?  
Although it can be heartbreaking at times, there is nothing more satisfying and rewarding than bring a pet back from the brink of death and home to its family.
Why do you choose to practice at VCA West Coast?  
The critical care department is structured (or will be soon) in a way that will allow me to do what I love doing most, provide high quality intensive care to the patients who need it. VCA West Coast also has a wide array of dedicated specialists and high quality diagnostic and therapeutic tools all under one roof.
What do you enjoy doing outside of practicing medicine?
Honestly, it has been so long since I have had the time to enjoy anything outside of practicing medicine that it will take some time to figure out! My husband and I do love traveling and have plans to do a lot more of it soon.
