Dr. Roma Salib
DVM

Hello my name is Roma Salib. I am Vet Care’s primary veterinarian. I was born in Giza, Egypt, on November 12, 1953 where I lived with my parents, two brothers and my sister for 22 years. While there, I earned my Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree from Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo University, in 1975.

I got married to my wonderful husband that same year and worked as a Veterinarian of Food animals, Equines and Poultry for five years. I moved to California in December 1980 with my husband Edward Salib, M.D. and two children; Richard whom was 3 ½ and Maryana whom was 2 ½ years old. I worked to help my husband until he got his license and raised my children till they graduated from high school.

As I pursued my career, I took a course on exotics at Purdue Indiana School of Veterinary Medicine, in 1992.  I passed the National Boards and finished the requirements of the Educational Commission for Foreign Veterinary Graduates Certificate at Oklahoma State University School of Veterinary Medicine and passed California’s Boards on April 1996.

I have worked and lived in Southern California since then for the last 21 years. I owned my own Veterinary Hospital for 12 years.

When I am not working, I enjoy outdoor activities such as walking by the coast and going fishing. I have several hobbies which include: oil painting, cooking, music, and sewing as well as attending Bible study meetings. I also have a green Amazon Yellow Nape Parrot, four turtles, and an Italian Mastiff puppy. Most of all, I love and enjoy being with my family and friends.

Laurie Fisher
Client Service Representative

I began my career with Vet Care 18 years ago because of my love for animals. I have been with this company for so long because of the love and compassion the team has for each other and the pets we work with and after all this time it feels like my second family! I have two pets, a cat, Riley and a sixteen-year-old Shih Tzu, Chloe. Although I love all kinds of animals they like to call me the crazy cat lady!


Denise Burns
Client Service Representative

I have been with Vet Care for 13 years. I am passionate about animals and always wanted to work with them in some way and aspired to become a Veterinarian. I don’t currently have any pets but all the ones that walk through our door, I love them as if they were my own. When I retire, I want to adopt a therapy dog.

I have worked for Vet Care for 3 years. I have always loved animals and was fortunate enough to be recommended to this company by a friend. I have three special fur babies. A long-haired cat that was rescued twelve years ago named Angel, a terrier mix named Oliver, and our husky mix Shyla. Dogs and cats will always be my favorite! Especially puppies…puppy breath and all!

Joshua Moore
Veterinary Technician

I have 10 years of experience working for Vet Care. I have always wanted to work with animals so when the opportunity came along I took the chance.  I enjoy that every day is a learning experience as well. I have many pets that we call it our little zoo. I have two American Pitbull Terriers, a male named Atreyu and a female named Luna. I have two Bearded dragons, a male named Petrie and a female named Beetlejuice. I also have a few fish tanks with one Oscar, a Green Terror, an eclipse catfish, two blue rams, and five yellow rams. My favorite animal would have to be my dogs, there is nothing better than their unconditional love.

I have been with Vet Care for a little over 1 year. I got into the veterinary medicine field because becoming a veterinarian has always been my dream job for as long as I can remember. I am currently taking pre-requisite courses at a university to further pursue my dream and go to veterinarian school. My favorite animal is a Tiger.
