Veterinarian
I was in my third year of a Bachelor of Science at the University of New Brunswick, not really knowing what I wanted to do afterwards, then my cat Cleo got sick. I brought her to Southpaw Animal Hospital in Fredericton and had this 'light bulb' moment, "Why have I never thought of this before?" It just made sense, I wanted to do something that would be helping people and have always been obsessed with animals. I changed my focus from Chemistry and was lucky enough to get accepted into the Atlantic Veterinary College, class of 2011. I have been working additional hours here since 2015, but only just transferred here full time in April of 2018. I love anything to do with surgery. Currently, I'm focusing on orthopedics but hope to go beyond that as well. I really enjoy rehabilitation, acupuncture and have an obsession with eyes and ophthalmology. My first family pet was a Labrador/Collie-cross named Sheba. I love that there are no limits in this profession. No matter how long you've been a veterinarian, there are always more things you can learn to do. I love the variety of cases that come into this emergency clinic and way the staff here work so synergistically to provide quick, efficient and life-saving care, for animals in need. I love to bake and even make wedding cakes from time to time.
Excellent hospital, with exceptional staff. Everyone is genuinely so kind, and it is clear that everyone loves what they do.…

Rebecca Schofield Community Event

Riverview Animal Hospital helped last week to build the Rebecca Schofield All World Super Play Park. It was a huge community event with over 2, 583 volunteers that built a giant accessible playground for all of Greater Moncton's Children to enjoy. Rebecca Schofield is Riverview New Brunswick's international celebrity. In 2016, at 16 years old Rebecca became ill, what was thought to be the flu turn into a diagnosis of Brain Cancer. In the short time before her death in 2018, Rebecca started a global movement, by inspiring people around the world to simply be kind to one another. Her hashtag #beccatoldmeto is to this day still seen all over the world as people perform random acts of kindness. Her legacy lives on making the world a better place one act of kindness at a time. We were very proud to be able to do our small part in helping to build the playground. We know that Becca's legacy will carry on for years to come, and I know the team at RAH will think of her every time we see the smiles of children as they play on their new beautiful playground.
