Amy Addison

Practice Manager

Working with animals has been my passion since I was very young. I grew up on a farm here in Lafayette and always knew my favorite place to be was outside with our animals. I started with Carson Vet Clinic in October of 2017 and have been a technician for almost 18 years. I explored Arkansas and worked there for 10 years and then decided to move back home to my roots. I am also a musician have studied percussion and voice since I was 4.  Working with animals brings immense joy and being a voice for them is extremely important, I feel as humans it is our duty to care for them as best we can. I love being outside and spending cuddle time with my Shih-Tzu named Wicket and my very spunky cat named Piper.

Hi, I'm Cecile Anzaldua. My family and I live in Mire La. We have two dogs, two horses and two calves. Our animals or considered part of our family. I have been working at Carson Animal Hospital as a Receptionist for 3 years. My favorite part about my work day is greeting all our clients and their babies. My favorite color is blue and I love dogs and horses. When im not at work I enjoy spending time with my family and watching movies, my favorite is Heartland. My favorite memory at Carson is when someone brought in a dog that had been missing from his original owners for 10 years. We were able to finally reunite this dog with his family. It was an amazing moment!

Receptionist

I have worked at Carson Animal Hospital for 3 months. My favorite thing about working at Carson is learning! I am very passionate about animals and I want to learn everything that I can to help them. My favorite color is blue. My favorite animals are Cats and Dogs, so im in the right business. When im not working I enjoy watching movies, my favorite is The Incredibles. I also love playing video games and watching anime. My favorite memory at Carson was when a good samaritan brought in a stray to be microchipped. We found a chip and were able to get in touch with the owners. The dog had been missing for weeks. I have never seen a person or dog happier, than the day they were reunited. I cant wait to make more fond memories at Carson Animal Hospital.

Blaine Cade

Veterinary Technician

My career as a technician is an accumulated 9 years. I started as an assistant in New Orleans before Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Soon after I moved to California and became a technician in Malibu. It was an intense and exciting place to work.  Originally, I’m from St. Martinville and recently moved back to the area. I started at Carson Vet Clinic in July of 2018 and am happy to be helping those that need help but have difficulty asking. I really enjoy meeting all the owners and their fuzzy friends. When I’m not working I’m probably constructing some art piece or enjoying nature. I like exploring places that deal in junk and lost toys. Also, I have Rottweiler/Bloodhound Mix named Josie, she is very demanding and lets me know when I’m slacking in my duties as her human!

I have been working at Carson Animal Hospital since February 2020 as a Veterinary Technician. My favorite part about working at Carson is learning and seeing new things. I love being able to help find solutions when treating pets that are sick or hurt. I also love the elderly pets that come in, and enjoy giving them extra love and attention. My favorite animal is a seal and favorite color is purple. When im not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family on the water, watching Harry Potter, and cooking.
