Dr. Betty Hall, DVM
I am the founder of Canyon Creek Animal Hospital. I graduated from U.C. Davis with a bachelors in Zoology in 1986, and then received my DVM degree from U.C. Davis Veterinary Medical School in June of 1990. I absolutely love taking care of dogs and cats – it never gets boring. I can’t imagine doing anything else as a career.
I live with a total of “2” furry kids: Riley, a five year old Golden Retriever; and Drake, an orange tabby that my husband and I rescued.
I got married to my husband, Ken, in July 2009, and have a ten year old son named C.J.
I received the 2005 San Diego Small Business Administration award for the Woman-Owned Business of the Year.
In my spare time, I like to unwind playing my Playstation 3 and 4 video games, watching movies and playing legos with my son.
Unfortunately, I am currently out on medical leave due to my previously fractured leg. I will keep you posted on my return.
Dr. Terri Dolorico, DVM
I am a graduate of New York University, B.A. Biology and University of Tennessee, DVM. I have been with Canyon Creek Animal Hospital since 2004.
My favorite thing about work: During an exam, I watched a kitty interacting with his mom and his human-sister, and I was charmed by how this once fiesty and rambunctious kitten rolled over the bench with contentment. He suffered the occassional indignation of the little girl squeezing him and kissing him on the head. Despite his medical issues, it was clear that his family adored him and that he loved them. The bond that develops between human and a pet is deep and it is an amazing opportunity to observe this each day at work.
Hobbies: I enjoy adventure travel, Hiking, skiing, wine-tasting, craft beer-tasting, wine-making, cooking, gardening, and having the critters paralyze me on the couch and make me watch TV.
My Goals are to continue my work at Canyon Creek animal Hospital and encourage families to experience the joys of falling in love with pets. Beyond work, I someday hope to live on a ranch with a miniature animal farm and then to later build a winery based upon this concept.
