Emergency Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day


Jackie Wride

Registered Veterinary Technician
Ever since I was a little girl, I have always loved animals. I have worked in veterinary clinics since I was 15-years-old and can't picture myself doing anything else. I went to school at Dalhousie University, in their Faculty of Agriculture and graduated in 2013. I joined Riverview Animal Hospital in April of 2016. I came here because of our great reputation and to work with other veterinary professionals who are just as excited about their jobs as I am. My special area of interests is emergency medicine and anesthesia are special interests of mine. My first pet was a Shetland Sheepdog named Tazz. What I love most about my job is knowing that I am giving the animals the best patient care I can. I always hope we put owner's minds at ease, knowing there are really great technicians (and doctors) looking after their hospitalized animals when they can't be here. What I love most about Riverview Animal Hospital is our top-notch patient care, and of course, the great staff I get to work with! Fun fact about myself is I have an almost 18-year-old dog named Dobi, who I love more than anything.
