"I have loved horses since the day I could sit on one. I grew up locally riding horses and showing sheep, dairy heifers, and horses in Rucker 4H. Love to trail ride - just get on my horse and go. I have four wonderful children, an adorable grandson, three loving horses, three crazy dogs, and two nosy felines. I have been working at TCVH since 2005; I love to hear our clients' stories and helping them get the care they need for their animals."
Cathy Lefeber, Office Manager
"Since 2008 I have been lucky enough to work at Tri-County Veterinary Hospital. Everyday is a new adventure. Sometimes I am sliding through mud chasing goats with a TCVH veterinarian, or I might be holding onto a screaming pig (that we just chased through the mud) while it gets vaccinated, or I'm just helping one of our vets complete a few routine appointments. I look forward to coming to work each day just to see what is in store for me next!"
Michelle Moreno, RVT
"I have worked at TCVH since graduating from veterinary technician school in 2002. I am licensed through the State of California as a Registered Veterinary Technician. A favorite part of my job is working with critically ill neonates (baby animals). I live in Gilroy with my husband, three children (Emma, Nathan, and Aaron). In my spare time, we love to go to Monterey, Yosemite and many other various outdoor activities with my family. "
Education: The Bel-Rea Institute of Veterinary Technology in Denver, Colorado.
Robert Gilroy, Head Assistant
"I am the senior assistant at Tri-County Veterinary Hospital and I've been working with Dr. Seals for over 25 years. My family was raised on the dairy farm where the hospital is currently located. My love of animals has been inherited by my son and two daughters. They keep me busy when I'm not working at TCVH, helping them raise and care for 4-H projects (sheep, goats, dairy and beef cattle) and the Gilroy family pets. My job is very rewarding and always interesting."
Erin Braddon, DVM
"I graduated from veterinary school at UC Davis in 2013, with a focus on large animal medicine and surgery. I especially enjoy working with horses and small ruminants, but love the variety that large animal medicine brings. Outside of veterinary medicine, most of my time is spent outdoors with my husband and our two black labs."
William Seals, DVM
"I have been providing veterinary care to this area since 1979 (as a graduate of the University of California at Davis). I have a special interest in equine lameness and reproduction, including application of stem cell therapies and embryo transfer. I hope you will join my Tri-County Veterinary Hospital family and allow us to care for your animals."
Our office staff strives to keep the client and patient records complete, organized, and accurate. Our receptionists are focused on gathering important information when you call and assisting the veterinarian's clerical needs. They perform most of the office paperwork and constantly watch for ways that Tri-County Veterinary Hospital can help provide the best possible care for your animals.
Our assistants accompany the veterinarians on their appointments and organize our facilities and mobile units. They are trained in the proper procedures so that staff, clients, and patients are kept safe during treatments. Our assistants help ensure that your animals receive the best possible care during your appointment or when they are hospitalized with us.
Our veterinarians focus on equine medicine. They are proficient in all aspects of large animal veterinary care and have experience in treating goats, sheep, alpacas, llamas, as well as pot-bellied pigs and other large domestic animals. They attend continuing education courses and examine current veterinary trends in order to provide the best possible care to their patients.
