Stephen

Veterinary Technician / Cat Friendly Veterinary Professional

Hello! Where do I start? Well I have always been caring and compassionate about animals. Ever since I could remember my family has had pets, I am the youngest of five children being the only son. We as a family of loving people always rescued wounded animals be it from emotional or physical damage. I grew up watching my older sisters take care of these animals and my oldest sister Missy even became a Vet Tech one day. It is all because of her that I am even a Vet Tech to this day, she is the one who gave me the opportunity to help animals on a different level.

I first started working in this field when I was 17 years old, I was still in high school so I worked every day I could after school. It was a small little animal hospital, of course I started from the bottom and worked my butt off learning and understanding all aspects of my job. Unfortunately I was not given the chance to grow at my first job. Then in 2011 I was asked by my older sister to join her over at VCA Cat Hospital of Philadelphia, that is where I really honed my skills and became the technician I am today. Then the time came when Dr. Kirnos was leaving us at VCA to move to Media. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to follow Dr. Kirnos to The Cat Hospital of Media on April 1st, 2014, where we continued to work together along with our new friends at the hospital. I have been working here ever since, and I love it!

Summer Hours

The team at the Cat Hospital of Media have been working really hard through COVID to provide all of our patients the best care possible. In order to give everyone a much needed break, we are starting Summer Holiday Hours June 1st through Labor Day. We will not see appointments on Saturdays. We will be open 8AM-11AM for Boarding drop offs and pick-ups plus medication pick-ups.

We are so happy we can do this for the employees and give them a well-deserved break! In case of emergency, please call the nearest ER. View those locations here.
