Antes Snyder, DVM
Scott Amsel, DVM
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.
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.
