About Me

Hi there! My name is Alice Wang, editor of By day, I’m a veterinary technician at the San Francisco SPCA, where I’ve been working for six years. Prior to that, I was a resident in University of California Davis’ residency veterinary medicine program in Oakland for three years. By night, I take care of my four chinchillas (Alex, Glen, Sammy, and Shiva). Over the past ten years, I’ve worked with hundreds of chinchilla’s diagnosing, treating, and providing resources to pet owners. I hope you find my guides useful. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. (Though, if you have a pet medical emergency, you should visit your local veterinarian as soon as possible.)
