Mikaela Marr

Registered Veterinary Technician
I decided to enter the veterinary field as a way of "giving back" to all of the special animals that impact and enrich our lives every day, whether that is through companionship, sports and entertainment or food production. I graduated from the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus Veterinary Technology program in 2019. I joined the Riverview Animal Hospital team in May 2019. The area of veterinary medicine that interests me the most is canine physical rehabilitation and sports medicine. This interest stems from my background in training and competing in the sport of agility with my Border Collies. I love how every day is different and how versatile a veterinary technician's role in the hospital is. A fun fact about me is during my third year of university, I was lucky enough to travel to South Africa for three weeks during a course, and was able to give an antibiotic injection to a sedated wild rhino. Another fun fact is that my first pet was a Border Collie named Riley.

As part of this commitment, effective immediately, Riverview Animal Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocol to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community, clients will not be allowed to enter the building. We have initiated a Closed-Door Policy, we have locked our front doors. Please call 506.387.4015 when you arrive for your appointment. We will meet you outside to get your pet. The exam will take place in our hospital with your scheduled Doctor with communication via telephone. In addition, we are limiting pet food purchases to 2 bags/cases per order. You can also place an order through our Online Store by visiting our website.


- If possible, please call us at 506.387.4015 to let us know you are on the way so that we can be prepared to meet you upon your arrival at the hospital.

- When you arrive, please stay in your vehicle in our parking lot and call 506.387.4015, and we'll come to you.

- If you do not have a phone or your pet's emergency is immediately life-threatening, please come to the front door and ring the bell.


We will no longer have suggested appointment times for urgent care situations.

  • Please continue to call ahead to let us know that your pet is having an emergency and that you are on your way.
  • For our emergency hospital - evenings and weekends will be walk in only. Your pet will be triaged by a Veterinary technician, who will determine the level of care that is needed for your pet. Critical patients will be our top priority, and will be seen first.
  • This will increase wait times for patients that are triaged as non-urgent.
  • Thank you in advance for your understanding.
