Veterinary Technician

Ever since I was a young child I've had a passion for animals. Growing up in Nova Scotia not only did I care for my own animals, but would always find myself caring for stray cats, frogs, birds and whatever else came across my path. The feeling it gave me nurturing them back to health was overwhelming and I knew I was going to get into the Veterinary field as my career.
Graduating in 2005 has not only given me the experience needed to manage an animal hospital but it has reassured me of my love and passion for being a Veterinary Technician.

I am honored to be working with such an amazing family here at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital. It is so refreshing to have finally found my forever clinic.

Rachel

Hospital Manager/Veterinary Technician

I am a Veterinary Technology graduate from Georgian college in addition to completing a Veterinary Medical Administration course at the University of Guelph, Ridgetown. I have been surrounded by animals my entire life and wouldn't want it any other way!

I began my journey with Dr.G as a co-op student at our sister clinic Eglinton-Mavis Veterinary Hospital before the official opening of Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital. I am so grateful to be a continued part of his team and for the opportunities that working with the Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital family has given me.

When i'm not working, I volunteer as much of my time as I can to wildlife rehabilitation and conservation areas around the world. During my most recent adventure, I was able to go to Costa Rica for Sea Turtle studies and rehabilitation.

At home, I am happy to have my two furry family members, a maltese/poodle named Murphy and a black cat named Calypso.

Sarah D
Registered Veterinary Technician

I am a graduate of the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College, class of 2017. Upon graduation, I wrote and passed the Veterinary Technician National Examination, officially making me a Registered Veterinary Technician! 

For as long as I can remember, my passion in life has always involved working with animals, which is why it was so easy for me to decide that becoming an RVT is truly what I was meant to do. 

I started my journey at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital as a volunteer during my time at Seneca College, and the incredible team along with all of the sweet fur babies and their families whom I had the privilege of caring for during that time made me quickly realize that this is where I was meant to be. 

I have been surrounded by animals throughout my entire life, and the connections I have made with them continue to inspire me in all that I do, especially in this field of work. I currently have two guinea pigs named Pork and Beans and two cockapoo puppies named Ariel and Sebastian, who are absolute goofballs! When I'm not at work, you can find me hanging out with them and my incredible family and friends! 

I am so proud of the roles and responsibilities that I carry here at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital as an RVT. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be doing something that makes my heart feel so whole, and I look forward to many more years of it!

Registered Veterinary Technician

I am a graduate from the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College, class of 2017.

My passion for animals began when I got my first kitten when I was a baby and ever since then I can't remember not being obsessed with taking care of animals and giving them the best life possible.
My whole life I've known that I've wanted to work in animal medicine, and becoming an RVT has always been a dream of mine. Being able to connect with animals and provide stress free treatment to them is what I love most about the Veterinary field. I currently have a 3 year old Shih Tzu named Milo, and two 5 year old love birds named Zoe and Allie.


Cleo

CleoVeterinary Assistant

I am a recent graduate from Thomas. A. Blakelock Secondary School.

I am currently striding towards going to Seneca College to accomplish my goal of becoming a Veterinary Technician. Upon graduation, I also plan to write the Veterinary Technician National Examination so I can officially become an RVT!

I have always had a great love for animals as I have always been surrounded by a variety of lovable pets throughout my life, so I knew I was destined to have a career that involved caring for them.

I started at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital as a co-operative education student in grade 11. During that time, I learned so much about caring for animals, and I knew right away that I wanted to become a permanent member of the Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital family. It is actually from my time here that I learned I wanted to become a Registered Veterinary Technician.

I currently have two dogs of my own, Rocky an 11-year-old shih tzu and Hannah an 8-year old miniature French poodle. 

They love visiting the clinic and getting lots of hugs and affection from the rest of our team!

Sarah

Veterinary Assistant

I am a recent graduate of the Animal Care program at Sheridan College, class of 2018.

I first came to Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital as a co-operative education student during my final semester at Sheridan College. 

For as far back as I can remember I’ve had a strong passion and love for animals. Since becoming a member of the Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital family, I can’t see myself doing anything other than working in the veterinary field.

I currently have two kitties at home, an 8 year old black cat named Moo and a 1 year old brown tabby named Beau, who I recently adopted!





Every now and then you may come across an unfamiliar face. 

Here at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital, we feel it is important for young people looking to head into the Veterinary Medical direction to get experience in the field before pursuing this challenging, and very rewarding career. Over the past couple of years, we have had many wonderful students from high school, and post secondary school join us for their educational co op requirements. We have also had a few Volunteers join us. Whether to get hours in applying for post secondary education, or just because they enjoy spending their extra time with our furry friends, they are wonderfully committed to making sure our facilities are in perfect shape for everyone’s visits.

I am currently a grade 11 student attending St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School. I have chosen to do a Co-op placement here at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital and I am very excited to be a part of the family!

Once I graduate from high school, I am hoping to complete my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM). At the moment I am unsure of what university I want to attend but, I am looking at many Canadian Universities that offer DVM programs.

I have always loved animals but unfortunately, I don’t have any of my own at home. Many of my relatives’ own pets and that is how I developed a passion for caring for them. Becoming a veterinarian is my potential goal, but I am hoping that once I finish my co-op here, I will be certain of my passion.

I am so thankful for this opportunity and I look forward to learning more about this career, and gaining as much experience as I can from the amazing team here at Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital.

I am a Grade 12 student attending St.Thomas Aquinas and I chose my co-op placement at Lakeshore Animal Hospital because working in a Veterinary Hospital may be what I would like to do in the future, and I enjoy being around animals!

Next year I will be attending Mohawk College in Hamilton for the pre-health program!

I have two amazing animals at home. A black lab named Raven who is 10 years old, and a tabby cat named Finn who is 5.

I am very excited to learn and experience what an everyday life at Lakeshore Animal Hospital is like and how see how everything works!

Kari

At the moment, I am striving to eventually complete and obtain my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree at the University of Guelph once I finish all my prerequisites and undergraduate degrees.

Ever since I can remember, there has always been a pet in our home. My love for animals developed from my father's affection for them, and soon I found myself caring not only for the animal's comfort but for their physical well-being and happiness as well. Owning from a variety of cats, dogs, turtles, fishes, hermit-crabs, and even a ferret, I soon realized my passion for animals might've been something to take seriously.

At the moment, we own a beautiful black and white Siamese cat called Mia, who despite looking like a 6-month old kitten, she's in fact 7 years old!

I'm looking forward to discovering if my passion for animals will determine my potential future career with the help of Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital.

I'm a person with fortune on my side, for I discovered my passion at an incredibly young age. Ever since I could toddle, I was ardent about saving the lives of animals, hence why I aspire to one day become a veterinarian and accomplish my dream of aiding animals.
Upon locating the Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital, I immediately composed a resume, as I was ecstatic to apply and contribute whenever possible. Needless to say, I am a proud volunteer who is currently in the 11th grade, studying intensively to garner acceptance into the University of Guelph where I will continue my journey. Lakeshore Road Animal Hospital has provided me with excellent experiences and opportunities that brighten my future.
I previously had two adorable cats, Reggie and Rico, but both have passed. When my academic duties have been completed, I enjoy reading, playing baseball, and hiking.
