Pam Laster

Receptionist

I have worked at Borchard Vet Clinic for over 18 years under the ownership of Dr. Larry Lowe. Although he has now retired and new ownership is taking place, I still consider this my home and the people who work here are family.

I devote my time and energy to making my job and responsibilities my main concern and try to do all the best I can. Learning new procedures and protocols is difficult but if you care about where you work you can make it work!

In my spare time, which is very little, I go to church and spend quiet time painting. Also have many small little people in the form of Dachshunds and they are mjy company when I am at home.

I also try to spend time with my lively granddaughter!

Efren Garcia

Veterinary Assistant

Throughout the years, I have been fortunate enough to be involved in general, shelter and emergency medicine. In 2020, I obtained my B.Sc. degree from CSU, Chico in Animal Science, Pre-Veterinary Medicine; and am currently preparing for the next chapter in my life, the College of Veterinary Medicine. In the meantime, my hopes and aspirations here at Borchard Veterinary Clinic is to learn as much as possible, while at the same time, teaching and mentoring future Veterinary Assistance and Nurses to evolve into the best versions of themselves.
As clinical coordinator, I am proud to be a part of a team that believes that every patient should be in a positive fear-free environment while in our care. Therefore, I have made it my commitment to improve patient care and efficiency to help practice the best type of Veterinary Medicine. Over the years, I have learned that the unconditional love and bond that people have with their pets is so significant. This is why I am passionate about client communication, and making sure that you, as our client, understand the extent of your pet’s condition; and that you have all your questions or concerns answered before you leave our clinic- with clear directions of next steps to help support your pet so that they are healthy and happy.
