Bio and Image Coming Soon!
Dr. Holly Allen
Dr. Allen joined our team in 2012 after graduating from the veterinary program at Washington State University in Pullman, WA. Go Cougs! She decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine after riding along with a large animal ambulatory veterinarian and realizing that she could combine her love for animals and interest in science/medicine into a successful career. While in college, she worked as a veterinary technician with both small and large animals. She earned her Bachelors degree in Animal Science from California Polytechnic State University in beautiful San Luis Obispo, CA. Her specific interests include ophthalmology and cardiology, but she also enjoys working with large animals whenever possible. Being a San Diego native, she enjoys any activity that involves being out in the sunshine including hiking, boating, gardening, and riding her paint horse Twistie.
Dr. Sierra LaBrecque
Dr. LaBrecque has always been surrounded by animals. It was no surprise when she started pursuing a career in veterinary medicine. Over the years she has worked with everything from emus and ostriches, to rehabilitating and releasing seals and sea lions. She completed a Bachelor's of Science degree in Animal Science from Cal Poly Pomona before moving to the Pacific Northwest to attain her veterinary degree. After graduating from Oregon State University, she completed an emergency medicine internship at Pet Emergency and Specialty Center in La Mesa. She joined our team in 2016, bringing her love for emergency medicine with her. In her free time Dr. LaBrecque loves nature backpacking with her constant companion, Scout, an Australian Kelpie mix.
Dr. Davis grew up in San Diego, graduated from Granite Hills High School and attended Grossmont Community College. He then graduated from UC Davis with an Animal Physiology Degree followed by UC Davis Veterinary School. Following veterinary school, he worked in a small animal practice in Los Angeles for four years before returning to San Diego to take over Fuerte Animal Hospital. He is excited to be joining Care & Comfort Animal Hospital as he felt it made sense to join a practice with a remodeled facility, updated equipment and excellent staff that practices high quality, high value veterinary medicine. All of the staff from Fuerte Animal Hospital will be joining Dr. Davis at Care & Comfort Animal Hospital and are thrilled about their new career home. Dr. Davis enjoys caring for cats, dogs, and pocket pets of all varieties. Outside of veterinary medicine, Dr. Davis enjoys water sports, and hiking with his wife, daughter, son-in-law and dogs while his cat stands guard at home. Dr. Davis is looking forward to seeing familiar faces from Fuerte Animal Hospital and new faces at Care & Comfort Animal Hospital for many years to come.
