Dr. Deborah Aparicio
Hi, I am Dr. Deborah Aparicio, the owner of Clayton Valley Pet Hospital. Animals have always been my number one passion. I also love sports and music. I belong to a year-round triathlon team so you may catch me rushing in on my sports outfit or running out to catch a rock concert.
I am here to establish your trust with quality pet care. I have 30 years of experience with small animals, birds, and exotics. I am also trained in animal acupuncture and behavior. I am able to offer your pets the care you should expect from a veterinarian, the care your pets deserve.
Give me the opportunity to show you my skills as a veterinarian and as a compassionate person. I love my profession and you will see that in my work. My dogs are Dexter and Cricket, my cats are Orange Crush and Clayton, and I have an 18-year-old mare named Windy. Come in and meet my friendly staff. We welcome all new families and their pets.
Deborah N. Aparicio, DVM
Hello, I have been working at Clayton Valley Pet Hospital since 2014. I am currently in pursuit of my RVT license and have recently graduated from Veterinary Allied Staff. I have grown up with animals my whole life and enjoy working with them every day. My husband and I live with our two cats Spooks and Puddles.
I have been working at Clayton Valley Pet Hospital since 2016. I am graduating from Carrington College in June 2017 with an Associates degree in veterinary technology. I am hoping to become an RVT by the end of this year. I have a yorkie/chihuahua named Lucy but am hoping to have many more dogs in the near future.
Hello Clayton Valley Pet Hospital Clients, my name is Patrick Cogo. Many of you may have seen me working around the hospital as a Veterinary Assistant for the past year as I pursued my education at Diablo Valley College and I have had the honor of meeting some amazing pets and loving owners. Now, I will be moving to Davis, California and pursuing a degree in Animal Science at UC Davis with a focus on becoming a Wildlife Veterinarian. Don’t worry! You’ll still see me around the hospital from time to time, assisting Doctor Aparicio wherever I can. I hope to utilize my newfound knowledge at UC Davis to bring your pets some of the best care.
My name is Joey Garay. I’ve been working as a vet tech for the past 5 years now. I have an associates in animal science and am studying to take my national exam to become an RVT. I love animals, those that I work with, and those I have at home. I have my little boy, Kiba, a 3-year-old husky mix. As well as two step-dogs. Leela, a 6-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback boxer mix, and Nutmeg, a 13-year-old Pitbull Lab mix.
When I’m not at work, I’m usually going to concerts, dog beaches/parks, or camping with my boyfriend. Or playing video games and watching anime on the couch if we’re feeling less adventurous. All of the above with the company of our pups.
Hi, my name is Morgan. I have a Bachelors of Science in Non-Profit Management from Arizona State University. I have always had such a passion for animals. In the past, I have volunteered for many different animal rescues, from dog and cat rescues to horse rescues, and worked on the board of a non-profit husky rescue. As a hobby, I ride hunter jumpers and in my free time, I enjoy hiking with my 2 dogs, Hotch and Chloe. I also have two cats, Artemis and Santana. I am currently working towards getting my prerequisites and hope to attend veterinary school in the future.
Hi! My name is George and pictured with me is one of my dogs, Norman. I have been working at CVPH since 2009, when I retired from United Airlines to pursue my love for animals. At the hospital I am sort of the Jack of All trades, working as assistant, kennel keeper, janitorial, yard work, and general maintenance. Besides dogs and cats I have been a rabbit lover since finding my first stray 20 years ago. I became a rabbit and guinea pig rescuer from then on. I also volunteered my Sunday’s from almost two years at the Oakland Zoo, working with the giraffes and elands. On days off from the hospital I also work at the Concord Pavillion. And during my free time you can find me gardening (my second passion), walking trails or biking!
