Lori O'Neil, DVM - Owner, Veterinarian
Certificated in Canine Rehabilitation Therapy

I was raised on a ranch in the Mojave Desert and have always loved and been an advocate for animals. In fourth grade I petitioned the President to save the wild horses.  Later, I started rescuing cats and kittens. One summer alone, I bottle fed 40 rescue kittens at one time and found them all good homes. All this while going to school and working! To this day my passion for animals has never faded.

 I found my true calling in veterinary medicine, dentistry, animal physical rehabilitation (otherwise known as physical therapy) and Emergency medicine/critical care. This is the area where I felt I could make a difference and have the strongest impact in saving and improving the quality of animals' lives.

 My philosophy is to treat every animal, whether owned or stray, like it is my own. I am very fortunate to be able to do what I love! 

I am featured in the Ventura County Star newspaper as the resident "Ask The Expert"

Rose Briseno - Senior Technician

I have been working at Adobe Animal Hospital for seven years now. I enjoy working with  animals, our staff and doctors.


Initially I worked as a Kennel Technician. Through dedication, hard work, and expanding my knowledge base, I have moved up to Senior Veterinary Technician.

I love providing preventative education to our clients about the illnesses and diseases that their pets can  get so they can protect their loved ones from diseases such as Parvo and Heartworm.

I felt very lucky to have found this job and it has turned into a career that I love.


Victor Solorio - Senior Technician

I always had a deep love for animals and honestly my family has a small zoo including a mini horse.

Initially I was an Adobe client. Every time I would see Dr. O'Neil I would ask if I could volunteer my time just to get a foot in the door of veterinary medicine. She always insisted that I get into a training program so that I would be reimbursed for my time. She even gave me the names of organizations that could help me. I found one, Adobe took me on and trained me. The training is hard and the learning curve is steep but when it is your passion you can not quiet call it hard work. It is more like tough love.


I have been a member of the Adobe family for 5 years now.

Working in Veterinary medicine is everything I thought it could be and more.


Sophia Hernandez - Technician

While attending high school I always had a passion for animals, and loved caring for them. During my freshman year I volunteered and performed an internship at Adobe through the Boys and Girls Club of Oxnard. Dr. O'Neil was impressed with the motivation and dedication that I displayed and Adobe took me under her wing. I have been working with the animals and staff for six years.

Dr. O' Neil has helped me understand the medical needs of animals, and I am still learning every single day.

I am working and attending college at this time. I plan to go to Pierce College for the Registered Veterinarian Technician program to expand my knowledge on animal health. From there I may tackle becoming a veterinarian myself. Knowledge is power.

 Our patients cannot  tell us what is wrong. Ill pets are riddles to be solved. Helping them when they are at their lowest point ,seeing them improve, and helping their family have more healthy and happy times together is what keeps me motivated and determined in this field.
