🐾 Hadi J. | Veterinary Technician

Hadi started volunteering at our clinic in November 2020, and has now joined our team as our veterinary technician. He studied veterinary medicine in Iran and is working on completing his veterinary examinations in Canada, so that he can be licensed to work as a veterinarian. He had his own small animal veterinary clinic in Iran (Flamingo Veterinary Clinic) where he practiced for 9 years before coming to Canada. He loves animals of all kinds, and they often have a sense of calmness when he is around them. At the clinic, he enjoys helping with surgeries, ultrasounds, and running our in-house lab analyzers.

His hobbies include running, swimming, and listening to music as well as reading books (including medical textbooks!).

🐾 Melanie P. | Veterinary Receptionist & Technician

Melanie has been at our clinic for the past three years, and she loves seeing our regular patients as well as meeting new ones! She is always ready to greet her furry friends at the door, and only wants the best for their health and their lives. She completed her Veterinary Assistant program at Durham College, and acts as both our receptionist and veterinary technician – a master of all trades! She has a very handsome Maine Coon mix cat named Moby at home (whose adventures you can follow on instagram @mobyroxthecat) and loves him despite any mischief he gets into 😉

In her spare time, Melanie loves craft projects and spending time at her cottage with her family.

🐾 Mia A. | Veterinary Receptionist

Mia joined our team in 2020 and loves the energy at the clinic. She is a great multitasker, and can be seen answering your calls, emails and in-person questions – always with a smile 🙂 She has two dogs at home, Kiko and Chloe, whom she simultaneously refers to as “queens” as well as her sons.

Outside the clinic, she has a passion for playing the piano, and studied at Laurier and York University for Music. During her free time, she loves catching up on her favourite movies and shows (her favourite Disney movie is Tangled) and discovering new rabbit holes on Youtube.
