I started working at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital in 2006. My first ever pet was Candy, a yellow Labrador, who was a gift to me to help overcome my fear of dogs. My favourite thing about the clinic is the busy, friendly buzz of the reception area and getting to know our clients and their pets. No two days here are ever the same, so life is never dull. I have now been cut off from getting any more pets (who knew that three horses, four dogs and four cats would be considered “too many?”).
