On September 15th, 2016, the ownership of Ferndale and Fortuna Veterinary passed from Dr. Chuck Ozanian and Dr. Kevin Silver, to Dr. Kristopher Flores, and his wife, Jennifer Flores, RVT. Dr. Silver and Dr. Ozanian would like to express "a deep appreciation to all our clients who have entrusted us with the health of their pets and livestock" and "it has been an honor to serve as animal health professionals for a community that values animal and public health." They have strived to carry on the tradition of their predecessors Dr. Harlan Detlefsen and Dr. Mel Roberts and are confident Dr. Flores will continue in that endeavor. Dr. Silver and Dr. Ozanian would also like to publicly thank all the current (and past) employees who have helped share the responsibility of animal care with them. The efforts of dedicated and loyal veterinarians, veterinary technicians, receptionists and kennel assistants have been an amazing attribute to the practice. They would also like to give special recognition to Kelly Victorine, who has worked tirelessly as office manager for over 25 years! Bravo! From the staff to Dr. Ozanian and Dr. Silver we say: thank you. We cannot begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for the most wonderful employers an employee could ask for. You've created a unique environment that nurtures and cares for it's staff like no other and we are proud to not only call you a boss, but also our friends. Currently, Dr. Silver and Dr. Ozanian are only working part-time between the two hospitals and are enjoying their much deserved time off. They will continue to be a part of Dr. and Mrs. Flores' new enterprise until, as Dr. Ozanian says, "they grow weary of us old timers!"
