Our Careteam

Ashleigh Boyer
Office Manager
After her childhood cat had an unfortunate run-in with a raccoon, Ashleigh spent months tending to her beloved pet’s every need. Thanks to her compassionate care, the cat made a full recovery! The experience left a permanent impression—Ashleigh knew that she would love to help animals professionally. Now, she’s proud to serve the area’s pets and animal parents as Lakewood Animal Clinic’s Office Manager.

Ashleigh is a Jacksonville native and has been volunteering at local pet stores, equestrian centers, and kennels ever since she was old enough to hold a job. When a friend told her about an open position here at Lakewood Animal Clinic, she didn’t hesitate! Ashleigh joined the hospital family in June of 2016, and especially likes to keep things organized through proper inventory management and medication supply. She loves knowing that her behind-the-scenes work makes a lasting impact for the area’s pets.

In her time away from the clinic, Ashleigh likes spending quality time with her young sister and enjoying the company of her own pets. She has two dogs—Princess, a German shepherd mix, and a rescued mutt named Puppup—who love accompanying Ashleigh to nature trails, the park, and the beach whenever the opportunity allows.

      Dr. Sandler and his staff worked with me to remedy my Otis' digestive problems. Two months of chronic loose stools. I am happy to report that Otis digestive issues seem to be resolved! Normal poohs for 3 weeks now! A combined treatment of diet and probiotics did the trick once the condition was diagnosed. I have never been so happy to see normal pooh...

      Dr. Sandler and his staff are awesome! My corgi would probably disagree. He's a handful. Needs to be muzzled & sedated for the sake of everyone's safety and sanity.

      I came in for an appt., signed the usual sedation forms, but asked that they avoid using any if at all possible. They whisked him away to the back to complete his exam.

      I braced myself for the sounds of shrieking, overturned tables, an unmuzzled Cuzo-like corgi gone rogue. With the occasional barks from other canine visitors/boarding, it all seemed too quiet.
      About 20 mins later, my vet tech (Tammy, I think) returned to update me.
      "WE DID IT!"
      Blood work done, nails clipped, ears cleaned. There were patches of fur stuck to her cheeks... But the team left unscathed!

      That wasn't always the case with past visits. Mojo once had a stress-induced episode of canon butt. He was not scheduled for anal gland expression. In trying to hoist him up to an exam table, he not only pooped MY pants, but his writhing around resulted in aerial backsplash. On Dr. Sandler's pressed shirt. And face. His poker face is bar none, seriously.

      TLDR;
      Everyone here is incredibly caring, personable, dedicated, and PATIENT. Dr. Sandler addresses all your concerns/questions, explains treatment plans and options, provides referrals to behavioral issue gurus, and is never pushy or dogmatic (bah-dum-tss).
      If your companion has allergies, that's his thang, so definitely see him. Even if your furry, fuzzy angel isn't so much of an angel towards them, they all will treat him/her like one. & That means a lot to me. :)
