Small Talk with Teri

Meet Dr. Trinka March, who began working at the Montecito Animal Clinic in Pacheco in 1990 and became the owner of the veterinary practice in 2001. She has a small herd of cats that keep her entertained.

What made you want to become a vet? I grew up with animals, have always been an animal person, enjoy science, and enjoy solving puzzles, so being a veterinarian seemed to be the logical answer to blend all of these interests.

What do you do when you’re not working? I am apt to be found in a musical rehearsal, performance, or at the theatre. I play upright bass in the Danville Community Band with my husband, cello in the DVC Orchestra, and alto sax in a group called the California Repercussions.

Does anything particularly unusual happen at work? There are always crazy stories of the dog that ate the BBQ brush or the cat that ate 20+ hair ties… But really, one of the most fun parts of living and working in the same small community is seeing how concerned the clients become for each other’s pets when they have not known each other, even to the point of paying each other’s bills occasionally.
