Greetings, Lockerby Animal Hospital Community! Let me introduce myself, I am Dr. Courtney Andrews, the most recent addition to the Lockerby Animal Hospital staff. My first experience with Lockerby Animal Hospital was 13 years ago, when I moved to Sudbury and required a veterinarian for my childhood pet, Snoopy. I was fortunate enough to move into the south end and have Snoopy cared for by Dr. Wilkinson and Dr. Hysen. Through the final years of Snoopy’s life, I bombarded the two doctors with questions about the profession and queries about volunteer opportunities to get as much exposure to what it meant to be a veterinarian as possible. My spare time between classes at Laurentian were spent at the hospital helping out, learning and getting to know the staff.
I took the opportunity to go to Scotland to complete my veterinary degree but my connection to Lockerby Animal Hospital and Sudbury never faltered as I kept in contact through email and spend a majority of my vacation time and co-op placements here. I am very excited to join the team on a full time basis as a qualified veterinarian and look forward to meeting all of you and your precious pets.
