Emergency Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day


Cassandra Parker-Smith

Registered Veterinary Technician

I graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Oulton College in Moncton NB in June of 2020 and started my career here shortly after in July. I also studied for a semester at Dalhousie AC in Truro NS before attending Oulton College. 

Growing up in a very rural area of Nova Scotia I had always been around farm animals big and small. Horses are actually my favourite animal and I rode English for a few years as a teenager. Even though I have experience with large animals, I still have a big love for working with small animals. 

I have four pets of my own which include a Nova Scotia Duck Toller named Lexi, a Border Collie Mix named Reya (named after Rey from Star Wars) and two grey cats named Bernie and Willie. Grey cats are my absolute favourite.
