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!

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!
