At a very young age, I knew that I wanted to become a veterinarian. Growing up as an only child surrounded by pets, my animals provided me with so much unconditional love that I found it my calling to devote my life to being able to provide care for them. Thirty-some years later, I proudly own the Niagara Animal Hospital. My staff and I provide exceptional care for many of the area's companion animals. It is my pleasure to provide care for our clients' pets with the same compassion and love that I provide for my own pets.

Meet Tiger: During the day Tiger roams freely in the clinic and is usually found sitting on the reception desk soaking up attention. A few years ago, Tiger was diagnosed with crystals in his bladder, a not uncommon feline issue. Since being diagnosed, he has been on a special diet to eliminate and prevent crystals and he is doing great!
