ABOUT THE DOGS:
Daisy Mae has epilepsy and was diagnosed when she was about 2 years old, but she has always been aggressive and fearful of vets.
Mobster is very aggressive toward most people, especially Dr. Garcia. Mobster actually chases Dr. Garcia out of the house. He is also missing an eye.
Tank is terrified of Dr. Garcia and being examined. Tank is extremely strong, so it’s been impossible for Lizette and Dr. Garcia to handle him. His former vet asked the owners to never bring him back.
ABOUT THE DOCTOR:
Dr. Rick Garcia’s love for animals is what motivated his veterinary career. He has studied the veterinary sciences everywhere from Florida to England, and he is a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. He finally made it to Los Angeles where he amassed some celebrity clientele. Dr. Rick also has three dogs of his own: Dela, Koda, and Bodie, all of which are rescues.
BEHIND THE SCENES:
