Brenda Buchanan – Hospital Manager

Brenda began her career as a Veterinary Technician over 25 years ago at a general practice in Tucson. Since that time, she has worked for several small general practices as well as working 16 years in large specialty/emergency practices, has become a credentialed technician in three states, and earned her Veterinary Technician Specialty in Neurology. Brenda has taught Veterinary Technician students through an online Veterinary Technology program for the last 9 years and strongly believes in continuing education for clients and staff. She is currently “owned” by three cats: Cheddar, Menace, and Mystral.


Dr. Adam Polosetski

Dr. Polosetski studied in Europe at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Brno, Czech Republic. He then graduated with Honors in July 2010. After graduation he worked in Israel at a 24-hour emergency hospital where he gained experience in both emergency medicine and surgery. Dr. Polosetski worked in close contact with veterinary specialists in ophthalmology, oncology, surgery, and internal medicine. He loves animals and people, and believes in performing quality medicine by educating pet owners about their pet’s condition. He believes client education should be in ways that owners can understand, and that they know the reasoning for treatment (not just complicated medical terms). He is the proud father of three pets, Lizzy—a jack Russel mix, Nika—a lab mix, and Samson—a street cat. In his free time he enjoys travelling, hiking, skiing, and trying new tasty food (then exercising to lose the calories gained)!
