Who We Are

The Clinic that Cares

Abernant Veterinary Hospital has been serving the pets of Georgian Bay since 1991. Our small animal practice is made up of talented veterinary professionals who are passionate about animals and who take care of each pet as if it were their own.

We offer a range of wellness services as well as extensive emergency services should illness or accidents strike. With a caring team of vets and technical staff, you can relax knowing your pet is in the best of hands.

Dr. Madeleine

Veterinarian

I studied Animal Biology at the University of Guelph (graduating with a BSc Honours in 2012), and completed my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College in 2016. 

 

My passions in practice are wellness care, client education, nutrition, behaviour, geriatric and palliative care, rehabilitation, exotic animal care (special interest but not a certified specialist), wildlife medicine and rehabilitation, dermatology, internal medicine, and animal welfare. I practice compassionate care that focuses on the wellbeing of the patient using resources available to the client. 

My current pets German Shepherd mix Harley, Golden Retriever Hope, and Corn Snake Frosty. I also lease a Quarter Horse named Cash in my spare time. I love animals of all shapes and sizes, but my focus is small animal primary care.

Traci

Registered Vet Technician

Traci is a Registered Veterinary Technician who has been passionate about animals from an early age. Since graduating she has spent most of her career in emergency medicine but is excited for the more personal experiences general practice has to offer. She loves all aspects of being an RVT but specifically enjoys surgery and diagnostic medicine. 

When she's not at work you can find Traci reading, cooking, crafting or spending time outdoors with her rescue dog, family and friends.

Rebecca

Registered Vet Technician

Office Manager

I'm Rebecca, an RVT with a heart for animals and their human companions. Graduating from St. Lawrence College's RVT program in 2018, I've primarily worked in shelter medicine, where I've witnessed the transformative power of compassion firsthand.

 

As a self-proclaimed "crazy cat lady," I share my home with five rescue cats: Creme Brulee, Bagheera, Samson, Mila, and Maxine. Beyond my love for feline friends, I have a soft spot for "spicy kitties" and senior pets.

 

In addition to my clinical role, I proudly serve as the office manager at Abernant Veterinary Clinic. My mission is to provide exceptional care and support to both pets and their owners, ensuring that every visit is a positive experience.

Crystal

Client Care Specialist

I am the first stop at Abernant Vet Hospital and have had the pleasure of working here since 2012.
I graduated from Fanshawe College in 2006 with a diploma in Fine arts and an art business 'Crystal Clarke Animal Art' producing pastel artwork which captures the essence of the animals we love.

With my love for all animals large and small working here is where I have found my niche.
