State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) has chosen Ventura-based small business Ohana Pet Hospital as her 2017 Small Business of the Year.
Ohana Pet Hospital is a veterinary hospital that specializes in medical, surgical, dental and wellness health care for dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, and select reptiles. They also provide preventative care such as physical examinations, behavioral and nutritional services. In the community, Ohana provides free physical exams to local animal shelters.

They are also committed to environmentally-friendly business practices. The hospital where they work, for example, has LED lighting, floors made of recyclables, recycled glass countertops, a paperless filing system, low water usage and energy-efficient appliances.
