Welcome Three New Clinic Family Members!

Welcome Three New Clinic Family Members!

This past year we sought to find new veterinary technicians that shared our passion for what we do. Please help us in welcoming two new Registered Veterinary Technicians, Lara and Tanya!


laraLara joined our team in the fall of 2017 after graduating from the Veterinary Technician program at Seneca College and writing her registration exam. Living at home with her family, Lara wasn’t able to get a furry family member of her own until she graduated. Shortly after she began working at the clinic, Lara adopted Theo, a very handsome, young Cockapoo, from a family that could no longer keep him. Lara cannot imagine life without Theo and takes every opportunity to spoil him. She even handmade a tuxedo outfit for him to wear at his first birthday party (please stay tuned for that photo!). Lara absolutely adores every animal that walks through our doors and always makes it a point to have lengthy discussions with our patients… we don’t have the heart to tell her they really can’t understand her!








Tanya is the newest member of our clinic family but she isn’t new to the veterinary technician world. Tanya also graduated from Seneca College’s Veterinary Technician program and has finally found a home at our clinic. Tanya lives with her best friend in the world, her seven-year-old Basset Hound/Labrador Retriever mix named Ebby. Tanya and Ebby are so well matched, they’re like two peas in a pod (or more like two couch potatoes sharing one comfy couch). During her free time, Tanya plays softball and enjoys getting Ebby out for walks. Tanya is a wonderful addition to our clinic family and takes special efforts to make each and every patient as comfortable as possible during their stay at the clinic, even if it’s just for a weight check!







By a stroke of luck, we also added a clinic mascot to our clinic family! Please welcome this handsome fellow named Leo. This little guy has a sad beginning but a very happy ending (spoiler alert: he found us!). One beautiful summer day last year, our clinic received a phone call that described being witness to a small kitten being struck by a vehicle on Bathurst. We ran out to help this little guy, who was in poor shape. Leo was barely moving and obviously sustained damage to his face. The situation did not look good, as Leo was so young (at about eight weeks old) and appeared to be malnourished. When we thought all hope was lost, Leo sprang to life! After performing a barrage of tests and keeping Leo on IV fluids 24/7 for many days (oh, and giving him lots and lots of TLC), our little guy steadily improved. Take a look at his progress:

We couldn’t be more thrilled to have this handsome boy join our clinic family. Gus, however, disagrees at times that he now has to share his home with another heartthrob, but he still seems generally pretty content. What do you think?
