Dr. Sarah Slater
Dr. Slater attended the University of Guelph where she achieved an Honours Degree in Zoology (1998) and a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine (2004). She started her career working in a small community south of Ottawa and enjoyed developing close relationships with people and their pets. While now working in “the city”, she still enjoys getting to know the whole family - the furry and the non-furry members!
Dr. Slater actively seeks the newest treatments and medications to best serve her patients. In 2013 she obtained her Certification in Veterinary Acupuncture - a process that required over 150 hours of class time, 40 hours of internship placement and a case report. Annually, she attends as least one major conference and several local talks to stay as current as possible.
While not working, Dr. Slater spends time with her 3 children, 2
dogs, 2 cats….and her husband! She enjoys gardening, baking, and ultimate frisbee.
