About Us

Our goal is to ensure each of your cats live a longer, healthier life. Our Calgary veterinary team believes one of the best things you can do for your felines to keep them healthy is preventative veterinary medicine such as wellness & vaccination programs. We understand that you want the best possible care for your cat and will do all that we can for your pet’s health to reach an optimal level.

The clinic is geared for feline patients, and we can give our clients and patients the extra care and time that is needed to provide excellent service and medical attention. It is a low stress environment, staffed by people who truly love cats.

I am the Mom of 2 wonderful boys, and have a cat at home named Willie Wonka. I enjoy yoga and hiking in the mountains, as well as travel.

Lucy a perfect little grey, black and peach Tabby.

What I love most about my job:
I LOVE animals, and working here there is always something new to learn. I am never bored and have an amazing team to work with! What more could you want really??

Fun fact about me:
Hmmmm...it's not really a secret, but I guess I lead a bit of a double life. I am also a musician. I am the lead singer of a band here in Calgary "Rosewood". I have been singing on stage since I was about 12, I recorded my first demo at the age of 16 and have been with this band now for about 4 years. We have had the opportunity to play for a lot of amazing events, even performing for the Premier and opening for some bigger acts. In the summer of 2013 we recorded our first original EPK (which can be found on iTunes (wink, wink*). I also have a posse of black cats at home Alley, Betty and Elvis and an adorable Toy Rat Terrier named "Dolly" who thinks she is a cat. :)

Taystee, Assistant Manager

Joined the Clinic in:

Area of interest:
Nutrition, aka stalking dropped food.

My favourite thing about the Clinic:
8am and 4pm (breakfast and dinner) and of course spending hours and hours in my bed.

My first pet:
My giraffe Kong Kickaroo

What I love most about my job:
Enforcing staff breaks for mandatory pets and brushing.

Fun fact about me:
I'm round but I've lost weight since I have been here! I keep looking for it in empty dishes. In the evenings I survey my territory and you may be privileged enough to spot me. My favourite toy is a string on a stick. I especially enjoy it because it makes the humans work harder than I do, and that is important when you are an assistant manager. My mortal enemy is the recycling man. He is very loud and disrupts my slumber. Some people say I have a catnip addiction, I however think I can stop whenever I want. Which is never.

I currently have two senior cats, Sneaker and Sonny. My love of cats has always been an important part of my identity, I collect cat memorabilia and have portrait tattoos of Daisy and Sneaker (so far!).
