Antes Snyder, DVM

Antes Snyder, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Tes Snyder is one of our wonderful vets here at Fillmore Animal Hospital. Her busy life includes tending her 36 chickens and 3 horses, running her beloved Cocker Spaniels in the fields, and caring for her sister’s flock of sheep on the family farm.

Scott Amsel, DVM

Scott Amsel, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Amsel was born into and raised in a medical family on the East Coast of the United States. He has lived in California since 1978 and in the Los Angeles area since 1986. During his undergraduate college and early vet school years, Scott developed and nurtured his interest in exotic animals while working at the Miami Seaquarium, the San Diego Wild Animal Park and the former Marine World, Africa USA. Subsequently, while attending veterinary school at the University of California at Davis, Scott specialized in the study of zoo and wildlife medicine.

Since receiving his veterinary degree in 1984, Scott has studied epidemiology and preventive medicine and experienced a wide variety of fascinating veterinary adventures. These include working on a movie in the Amazon with wild river dolphins, working to secure the release of wild dolphins trapped by fishermen in Taiwan, helped rescue and provide medical care for ex-captive orangutans in Taiwan and Indonesia, helped develop a wildlife rescue program in Thailand, and worked for two years as staff veterinarian at the Los Angeles zoo. He has presented papers before the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians as well as publishing original work in various veterinary journals.

Dr. Amsel’s interests cover the entire spectrum of the animal kingdom. After working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for a year in 2000 he moved back to Los Angeles to partner with another zoo vet to run a private practice caring for the many species of animals working in the entertainment industry. He starred in a national Science Diet television commercial and provided veterinary supervision for two reality television shows about dogs. Since then he has worked hundreds of hours for low-cost spay and neuter programs and continued attending to regular pets in private practice.

When not caring for others pets, both domestic and exotic, Dr. Amsel can be found hiking with his two dogs, teaching veterinary technician students, cruising southern California on his motorcycle and scuba diving.

Shauna Lidikay

Shauna Lidikay

Hospital Owner and Manager

Shauna has been working in the veterinary field since she was a teenager. She met Dr. Lidikay (at a veterinary hospital, of course!) in his first year of vet school and they were married soon after. After his graduation from UC Davis, they purchased Fillmore Animal Hospital in 2005. It has truly become a family venture, and a journey the Lidikay family is grateful to be on. After Dr. Lidikay’s death in early 2017, she kept the hospital going and has two wonderful vets that work for her. Shauna enjoys furthering her knowledge of veterinary medicine and practice management with classes and continuing education and loves developing relationships with FAH’s wonderful clients and patients. She shares her home with her four children (Sebastian, Gabriel, Peyton, and Scarlet), four dogs, three cats, and an African Sulcata Tortoise.

Suzie has a son, Samuel, who gave her two beautiful grandchildren, Madison and Isaac. Her favorite four-legged friend, Dexter, is the only kid at home right now and loves being with his mommy.

Mayra joined the FAH team in 2014. She loves seeing her patients’ health improve with treatment and preventive care and is convinced that all the hugs and kisses she lavishes upon them are an important part of the process as well! She loves animals and is in heaven working with different species here. Her favorite parts of working at Fillmore Animal Hospital are her coworkers and the unpredictability of never knowing what emergency is going to come through the door. She has a son and daughter that are her world and, of course, some fur children as well. Mayra is a mom to Raider the pittie, several silly Frenchies, Tiki the cat, and little Spike the Yorkie mix.
