Al Chan, DVM, MS

Dr. Al Chan obtained his Veterinary Medicine degree from UC Davis in 2002. After practicing in the Los Angeles area for 3 years, he and his wife decided to move up to the Monterey Peninsula , where he has been establishing a steady clientele in Salinas ever since. He loves adding a personal touch to his practice style in treating his patients and communicating with his clients. He is particularly interested in surgery, internal medicine, and incorporating technology into veterinary medicine.

Outside of the hospital Dr Chan enjoys spending time with his family, which includes his wife and 2 children. In his spare time, his hobbies include rock climbing, photography and videography, reading, and gaming when time allows.


Rachel Sage, DVM

Dr. Rachel Sage realized from a young age that veterinary medicine would be her calling (one of her favorite childhood books, All Creatures Great and Small, by James Herriot, was a likely influence).

Following graduation from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Sage focused on small animal care, practicing first in Southern California and later in the Monterey Bay Area. From 2007-2010, Dr. Sage combined her commitment to higher education with her love of animals as a member of the teaching staff of the Registered Veterinary Technician program at Hartnell Community College.

An avid reader, Dr. Sage also enjoys digital scrapbooking in her free time. Her family includes her husband, 2 children, one dog (“Gambit”) and two cats (“Nikos”, and “Aspen”).

For Dr. Sage, client education is a top priority. Her favorite part of veterinary medicine is building long-term relationships with people and their pets. I love being a part of the pet's whole life time and forming a bond with the pet and their owner.”


Ashley Amaral, DVM

Dr. Ashley Amaral grew up immersed in a Central Coast ranching family. It was this early exposure to animals that shaped her future career path

After graduation from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2011, Dr. Amaral started her career in an ambulatory equine practice. She then made the switch to small animal medicine and has not looked back.

Dr. Amaral and her husband, Luis, have two sons. She enjoys horseback riding, hiking, and weekend trips to the family ranch.

Dr. Amaral has a special interest in emergency medicine and dentistry, and believes that veterinary care should not be intimidating. Strong relationships between veterinarians and clients enable the highest quality of care be provided to pets, and she strives to create a comfortable setting for both pets and clients alike.
