DVM's

Dr. Angela Smith

Dr. Angela Smith was born in Toronto and has lived in Mount Albert since 2004.   She obtained her veterinary degree at the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 2001 after completing her Bachelors of Science degree. Dr. Smith recently obtained her Masters degree in Public Health at the University of Guelph in 2013.

Dr. Smith’s professional interests include public health, feline medicine, ophthalmology and emergency medicine.  She has worked at the Emergency Clinic of York Region for over 12 years. One of the best things Dr. Smith enjoys about being a vet is the ability to educate her clients about how to reduce the risk of exposure to zoonotic and other infectious diseases that their pets could be exposed to and those which have the potential to affect human health. Providing optimal pet health in turn can contribute to the health and well being of all members of the family. 

When not at the clinic, she enjoys spending time with David and the kids, her cats Sydney and Titus, and family dog  Zoe. She enjoys golf, swimming and gardening. One of her dreams is to have the opportunity to travel to other countries with Veterinarians without Borders where her veterinary medical and public health knowledge can contribute to the overall health of various world communities. 

 

Dr. Katherine Tran

Dr. Katherine Tran was born and raised in Toronto, and completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at Western University of Health Sciences, in sunny Southern California. She previously obtained her Bachelors of Science (Honours) at McMaster University, with a specialization in Environmental and Earth Sciences.

In veterinary school, her most memorable and rewarding experiences were working with cats both big and small, including stray kittens at the shelter, and cheetahs in conservation programs. Naturally, her interests include feline medicine, and is also passionate about surgery and preventative healthcare. She is Fear Free Certified, and is committed to making veterinary visits as pleasant for her patients and their families as possible.

After completing a clinical placement at EGVH in her senior year, Katherine was so inspired by the compassionate care and calibre of medicine, that joining the team was really a dream come true.

Dr. Tran loves the outdoors, and enjoys cooking and experimenting with new recipes, which her fiance, Charles, doesn't mind at all! They share their home with Mia, a black cat with a lot of personality, and hope to add a barking family member in the near future.

Technicians

Tricia Morton 

Tricia is a life-long East Gwillimbury resident.  She was born and raised on a local family farm and continues to live on a horse farm just a short drive away.  Tricia has her Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Guelph and has worked as a veterinary technician for over 20 years. 

By working at the EG Veterinary Hospital Tricia has returned to 'her roots'.  Her Mom and Grandmother were raised on farms less than a mile away and used to buy their groceries and stamps at the store that was originally at this location.  It was on the family farm that Tricia first developed her love of animals, both big & small.  Although she is no longer riding horses as 'the girls' fit much better in her car!  

She has a strong interest in animal behaviour and tries to make every animal experience at EG Veterinary Hospital a positive one. 

Tricia shares her home with 'the girls', her 2 dogs (Kix & Steele) and 'the boys', her 2 cats (Jeff and the elusive, rarely photographed Dougie)!

"Quality Control Officer" (Clinic Cat)

Luna

This lovely girl was a stray here in Holt and stole our hearts immediately.  After searching and no one claiming her she has now become the top member of our team!  Luna was a perfect patient and allowed us to do a full check-up, microchipping, dewormed and vaccines.  Once we received the blood results back (which were all normal) the only thing left to do was spay our beauty.  She recovered very well and has settled in nicely.  You will see her roaming around the clinic so do be sure to say Hello to her!
