Allison Butler

Veterinary Assistant

I graduated from Academy Canada and I joined Torbay Road Animal Hospital in September 2009.

The area of veterinary medicine that interests me the most? All of it. The more I learn the more I like it.

My first family pet was a cat named Tom-Puss. My first pet that was just mine was a bunny named Lilly who I was fortunate to have for 9 years.

What I love about my jobs is watching patients grow up with their families over the years and being able to be even a small part of their life story. It’s also amazing getting to help a patient get better. Getting to watch them finally go home to their families after being in the hospital with us is a really great feeling.

My favourite thing about the clinic is how we are more like a family than a workplace.

A fun fact about myself? I love to bake. I make the best chocolate chip swirl cookies!
