                               Silas - Too Cool For School
                                                              
                                                       My brother (Simeon) and I have resided at Oasis Animal Hospital since we were little.  While Simeon is friendly with everyone, I tend to be a little more reserved and want you to prove I can trust you.  However, once I know you, I am VERY affectionate, and will talk to you and tell you when you can come and pet me while I eat.  I have filled the role of Comforter here at Oasis, and because I am so sensitive, when I see someone who needs a little more love and affection, I will rub on them and let them pick me up, cry in my fur, and be comforted by my deep base purring.  I can also be often found lying next to animals recovering from surgery, in order to keep them warm and comforted.
 
 
 
 
 
 

                        Simeon - The Smart Boy
                                           
My brother (Silas) and I have lived at Oasis Animal Hospital since we were 6 weeks old, and as soon as I could sneak up front, I became a regular fixture in the Reception area, where I enjoy watching birds, sitting on laps, playing with my toy mice, introducing myself to the animal patients, and lounging in the sun.  I can usually be found helping the Client Service Representatives type on the computer, and have never met a box that couldn't be improved by my presence. And my specialty as Dr. Simeon Fisher (I even have my own degree that Cathy & Kristi made) is detecting Urinary Tract Infections with ease!
 
 
 
 
                           Jazzy - The Queen
 
                                            My Loyal Subjects, you may call me Jazz, although I do prefer "Her Majesty."  I have been at Oasis Animal Hospital since 2009, when I was literally dropped off in a box.  In my former home, I had been VERY badly abused, and it took a few years before I trusted anyone or would allow anyone to pet me, or hold me. . . in fact if you had tried to do this, I would have shown you how I use my teeth and claws.  Now however, I have realized that I am in a much better place, and have learned to allow my subjects to pet me (but only when I allow it).
 
 
 
 
 
                              Soloman - The Entertainer
                                                      Hello, my name is Solomon, but most people call me 'Solly' (or Silly Solly).  I have been at Oasis Animal Hospital ever since I was about 6 weeks old in 2009.  I originally came with 5 other brothers and sisters, but I found them all good homes, and decided that I enjoyed living here at Oasis, and so I adopted Kristi so that I could stay.  I love to have people see how cute I am, and will sometimes dress up in order just to make people laugh.  I think it is a lot of fun living with three other cats, and I enjoy jumping on them, and wrestling (although sometimes they fight back, and that is not so much fun).  I love to strut around and show off the "Super Solly" insignia on my chest, and will usually walk up to you, in order for you to be allowed to pet me.

                                                               As far as I can remember, I have always had a great love and affinity for animals.  Growing up in Huntington Beach, California, I grew up in a house with dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, snakes, turtles, and a plethora of fresh-water fish.  From loving and taking care of this menagerie, I have always known that I wanted to be surrounded by animals throughout my life.  When I was about 8 years old, I found out that I could combine this desire with my love of Science and Medicine and become a Veterinarian.  From then on, I knew what I wanted to do.
     My family moved from California to Kansas as I was starting High School, and I went to college and earned a degree in Agriculture with an Emphasis in Animal Nutrition.  I then went on to attend and graduate from Kansas State University - College of Veterinary Medicine in 1993.
     My wife Kristi (of 27+ years), and I moved to the Las Vegas Valley, where we have resided since 1993.  I have worked for a few private and corporate Veterinary Hospitals, and decided that I wanted to "do Veterinary Medicine the way it used to be," so in 2000, we opened Oasis Animal Hospital.
     As the owner and Veterinarian at Oasis Animal Hospital, I get to spend more time with our Oasis Family (Clients), and can educate them to make sure that they can give the best care to their furry family members.  And since we have such a great work family, I can concentrate on Diagnosis, Surgery and Treating all of our great pets.
     Kristi and I have 3 boy cats (Simeon, Silas and Soloman) who live at Oasis Animal Hospital, and 1 girl cat (Jasmine or Jazzy) who lives at home (because all of the boys pick on her).
     In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, Scuba Diving, kayaking, travel and learning new things.  I love to invent new things and create new ways to improve how things are done.  I also like to relax by doing puzzles, like Sudoku.

                                                I was born and raised in central Kansas. While I was in my last year of college at Fort Hays earning a bachelor's degree Education, I met Brian Fisher. That was in 1986. We sustained a long-distance relationship as he was heading off to K-State in Manhattan and I stayed around Salina to teach Art. We were married in 1989. A few years later, the week of his graduation from Vet School, we loaded all we owned and drove to Las Vegas for his 1st job as a Veterinarian.  After Brian had worked for a few years for others, we decided we would like to open our own hospital, so we began planning, working, and building. We opened Oasis Animal Hospital in March of 2000, and have enjoyed a thriving practice ever since. I am so pleased and blessed by our great clients and their pets, and our amazing staff (co-workers) who are dedicated, caring and professional. Our Oasis "family" and practice has given me many opportunities for personal and professional growth, deep friendships, and the love of hundreds of 4-legged friends as well. (P.S. if you see a blond lady in a ball cap and jeans running in and out and talking "baby- talk" to the animals, it's probably me :)

                                                               I am a licensed Veterinary Technician here at Oasis, I have been part of the Oasis Family since 2004. My love for animals started when I was a child. I always seemed to bond with every animal I came into contact with. While growing up, my mother tried to push me to go to Vet School, but I never thought I was smart enough and I most certainly didn't think I would be able to handle dealing with the physical and emotional part of healing animals. After having my own child when I was 28 years old, I found there was a side to me I never knew I had. I was able to handle so much more then I ever gave myself credit for. So I decided to go to CSN and pursue a career in Veterinary Technology. There were many, many times my instructor, Dr. Olsen, had to push me to be strong. I didn't want to do things like draw blood, place IV catheters, draw urine from a bladder or poke an animal at all. I was always afraid of hurting them. He explained to me that because of my loving, caring nature "you are exactly what this profession needs." I am so very thakful for Dr. Olsen for showing me my true potential. I graduated and got my LVT license in 2004. I was hired here at Oasis later in 2004. Dr. Fisher has been so amazing and has taught me to be the fabulous technician I am today. At Oasis, I am so lucky to to be able to spend a lot of time with patients and clients, getting to know them very well. Helping them get through difficult situations is a huge part of my job. I try to help owners stay strong and make the right decisions for their pets. I have cired and laught a lot over the years of caring for pets at Oasis. I now have very close relationships with many of our clients and always close relationships with all of my patients. My goal is to keep all of our pets happy and healthy. I am always happy to educate clients so they can take the best care of their pets that they can. I am so very blessed to be part of the Oasis Family for so many years! I am married to my best friend and high school sweetheart. We have a beautiful, talented daughter and a houseful of spoiled cats and dogs. Getting my LVT was a huge accomplishment in my life. Realizing how well I can handle sad and emotional situations is a huge accomplishment as well. I am very interested in helping care for anyone that I can make their life better. I always try to see the positive side of things, even when it seems there is nothing positive about the situation. God has blessed me with an open mind and a giant heart. I am always happy to share the love in my heart with everyone I meet.


 
 

 
                                                Paul Taylor, LVT
 
                                                I was raised in the town of Payson, UT. I have always loved animals and grew up with various pets. Where I grew up the only viable career in animal health was working with livestock, however that held no interest for me. So, I pursued other interests, got married and eventually ended up working in retail. After working retail for 8 years, I had moved to Las Vegas to take a management position, but found retail unstatisfying and found myself looking to change my career. I found out about the Veterinary Technician program at Pima Medical Institue and decided to attend. I graduated from PMI in January 2010, and have been employed at Oasis since March 2010. I have two beautiful daughters, two pugs, an adorable Boston Terrier and a little grey cat.
             As an LVT, I get to help keep your furry companions healthy and help educate you on how to better care for them. Working as a Licensed Veterinary Technician has been very rewarding, I could think of nothing else I would rather do as a career and no two days are ever the same. I really enjoy the technical side of my job such as drawing blood samples, placing IV cateters, taking radiographs, and dental cleanings. 
 
 

                                                


                              Gabby Demarco, Kennel Tech
                                                      I'm a Kennel Tech at Oasis Animal Hospital. I was born and raised in Las Vegas and I'm currently attending CSN to get my Technicians License. I got into the veterinary business because I've always held a strong love toward all animals, and my biggest interest is studying veterinary medicine. Because of my love for animals and interest in verterinary medicine, I decided to apply here at Oasis and I started working in June 2016. My main job here is to take care of the dogs and cats who are boarding. I make sure these pets get everything they need. I also contribute to helping the Vet Techs with whatever they might need. I currently live with my mom and younger brother. I have a shih-tzu/yorkie mix named Bella and a crazy Sphynx cat named Nika; however, I'm always up to taking in more pets! My personal intrests include anything that deals with the outdoors, such as camping or hiking. I would say my personal achievements have been getting good grades all throughout Middle School and High School, which can help me further my studies in Veterinary Medicine.







                                                          Hunter Gonzales, Kennel Tech
                                                          I was born and raised in beautiful Southern Nevada. Upon my graduation from Sandy Valley High School in 2014, I attended Colorado State University (CSU) on an academic scholarship. This fall I will be starting my junior year at CSU as a pre-veterinary student. Becoming a veterinarian is all I’ve ever wanted to do with my life, and I have growing up on a ranch to thank for my love and passion for animals. While home this summer break I wanted to get some more knowledge and experience of the veterinary world under my belt, and that’s how I found Dr. Fisher and the Oasis family. I began shadowing Dr. Fisher and his staff on June 27th 2016, and on July 14th 2016 I was hired. Since I’ve been at Oasis Animal Hospital I have learned so much, and I can’t thank Dr. Fisher, Kristi, and the entire Oasis staff enough for giving me this wonderful opportunity.








                                                    Cathy Jackson, Vet Tech Assistant & Client Relation Specialist
 
                                                    I am a Vet Tech Assistant & occasionally help as a Client Relation Specialist here at Oasis Animal Hospital, I started October 2014. I was born on Nellis Air Force Base and was raised in North Las Vegas. I wanted to get into the veterinary field because being raised in that part of town, I saw a lot of stray or injured animals that just needed someone to love them and take care of them & it got me thinking, "what can I do to help?" The summer of June 2016, I walked over to the animal hospital that was around the corner from my dad's house and asked to volunteer. They were quite shocked that I did mean volunteer, not community service. My first day there,I got to see a Red Tailed Boa have a cyst removed and I was hooked from there. Since then, I've always have been one of the "multi-taskers" of any practice I've been at; I'm able to help at the front desk to assist clients checking in for appointments or answer phone calls, help Paul, Jen or Dr. Fisher in the treatment area for simple things like ear cleanings or even more hands on work like radiographs or ultrasounds and also help out in the kennel area with walking any dogs that may be boarding & helping to keep the practice cleaned. You may also see my name pop up a bit on our Facebook Page as myself, Linda & Dr. Fisher try to post information daily for our clients that is beneficial for our fur babies at home to share with friends and family that may be looking for good, quality information. I also help Dr. Fisher update our website that we designed ourselves (no, really - it was all us) in November 2015. We've gotten some great feedback about it and we're always looking for more so we can provide the best information possible to our Oasis Family. I currently have an American Pit Bull named Hercules and my domestic short hair Brittney, that I recused from Oasis! My ultimate goal is to either start school within the next year or two to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician or to be an Animal Control Officer so I can continue helping all of the fur babies that need help, but can't ask for it. I look forward to meeting you and your fur babies  on your next visit to Oasis Animal Hospital!

Client Relations Specialists




                                                      Linda Carter

                                                      I am one of the Client Relation Specialists here at Oasis. I was born at Wilmington, Delaware. I moved to Las Vegas in 1982 and attended Eldorado High Scool & then UNLV. My life growing up, I always wanted to work with animals, rescued wild life & injured critters when I was younger. I love nursing animals back to health, then adopting them to forever homes. Growing up every summer, we would travel the states, meeting many wonderful people. I knew I would love to work with the public and all animals. I enjoy cooking at home, crafting is a hobby that I also enjoy. I could also say I'm a sports fan! Swimming, diving, NFL ( GO EAGLES!), NCAA Basketball (Duke Blue Devils), NBA (Go Celtis!). I do pet sitting & pet transportation as well. In my down time, I take Cane, my big loveable 9 year old Pit Bull for his walks, enjoy poetry, reading & listening to music. My husband and I enjoy going on weekend outings to the Springs Preserve, Mt. Charlestion, and Sunset Park for strolls. Family means the world to me.
