Dr. Ashley Ellsworth

Veterinarian
I decided to join veterinary medicine, as it combines the challenges that medicine presents and working with pets. I have worked in various roles in veterinary hospitals since 2003. I graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in 2014. I practiced in Halifax after graduation and joined this clinic in October 2017. I enjoy veterinary medicine because we do so many different things, but I specifically enjoy feline medicine, along with emergency and critical care. The best part of my job is not only working with pets but also the lovely people and families they are attached to. My favourite thing about this clinic is the amazing staff, who treat the patients like it's their own family members. Before I went to veterinary school, I was a zookeeper and a teacher. My first pet was a guinea pig named Piggly Wiggly.
