Dr. Susan McGillivray
I grew up on a family cattle ranch in the Kamloops area, and have wanted to be a veterinarian all my life. I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon in 1994 and after graduation completed a Small Animal Medicine and Surgery internship at Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. I studied for an additional year in the Small Animal Internal Medicine residency program at the University of Colorado before returning to Canada. I moved back to Kamloops in 1997, and have been working part time as a small animal veterinarian primarily at Kamloops Veterinary Clinic, while raising three children. I have an interest in small animal medicine, preventative health, and senior care.
My family and I own and operate a century ranch with Angus cattle, and a small flock of Dorset sheep. We are involved in the local ranching and 4-H community, and when we are not at work, spend our days surrounded by animals, and with friends and family. I am often accompanied by my Border Collie, Gus, and when at home surrounded by our house cats, Tigger, Flash, Dixie and Ginger.
