Angie

Hospital Manager & Registered Veterinary Technician

Angie’s family has been clients here from the beginning (1981) and we have watched her grow up. You could say we groomed her for her job. In actuality it is her natural talent and sense of humor that make her so valuable. She has been with us since 1996. She is Chief Hospital & Office Manager, as well as a Registered Veterinary Technician. Angie has a salt water aquarium and a lab mix named “Bear.” Angie loves to go to the ocean, take hikes, go camping, and spend time with her family and life partner, Paul.

Janet

Veterinary Assistant

Janet has been here since July 2017 and comes from many years of experience in the veterinary field. Her journey began in 1984 as a ROP student studying Animal Science. She soon realized that her true passion and purpose in life was to help care for animals. Janet enjoys the outdoors, and is a mother of two adult children, and grandmother of three girls. She has two cats, Scooter and Cow, and a yellow lab, Riley. She is also a “part time” mommy to our hospital cat, Burnie.

Brittany

Veterinary Assistant

She’s back!!! Brittany is a return employee with over 15 years of experience in the veterinary world. Her love of animals and adoration of Angie is what brought her back to Sunset Whitney Vet, and we sure are happy that she returned home! Brit has two cats, Simon and Joseph, and two dogs, Sid and Tallulah.

“Chilly"

Chilly is our cockatiel that was abandoned on our doorstep in January 2003. He’s quite lively, and will sing The Andy Griffith Tune and say Pretty Bird, on his terms of course!

Burnie

Burnie came to us in November 2018, as a victim of the Camp Fire. His paws, face, and back were burned. Within one week of having him here, it became quite clear that he fit right in, and he became part of our family.
