I’ve always known I’ve wanted to work with animals ever since I was little. I attended northern college and graduated from the veterinary technician program in 2007. That same year I went to South Africa to work with the wildlife there for a month. It was amazing. Then in 2008, I graduated from the wildlife program offered through northern. I passed my exam to become a registered veterinary technician in 2008. Through my career, I’ve developed my passions. My strongest one is dental cleanings. The main reason is you can bring Instant relief to an animal in pain. Which a lot of times they won’t show you. I love hearing from owners wow my pet's mouth smells amazing now.
I have two pets with my partner Ken. A 9-year-old black lab named Riley. He loves laying in the sun. Our 6-year-old cat Spaz. Who loves playing with toy mice.
In my spare time, I do competitive rifle shooting at my club in Peterborough. Also, attend truck and tractor pulls in the summer with Ken.
My name is Kaynece and I officially became apart of the Herongate Family in the late August of 2022. I am also working part time at the Dogtopia in Pickering. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my cat M'baku, watching movies, and listening to music. I look forward to meeting you all 🙂
I have always had empathy for animals since I was a little girl, from rescuing frogs and turtles from the road to bringing home a box of kitten I found. I wasn’t always in the animal care profession as I originally went to school for accounting. Although I'd had some success in that field, I didn't feel fulfilled by that field and went back to school for Animal Care. Being an Animal Care Attendant brings me so much joy and a much deeper sense of fulfillment. When I am not at work I am off to the dog park with my dog or hanging out with my cats and husband at home.
Ever since I was young I've been very fond of learning fun facts about animals on TV. All the while growing up with my grandma from back home I've been surrounded with different kinds of animals such as cats, dogs, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs and so much more. I've watched and helped my grandma in feeding and taking care of them. I started as a Co-Op student here at Herongate Animal Hospital on April 2023 during my last sem of taking ACA at Durham College and got offered a job after my Co-op placement. I've learned so much and enjoyed my time as a co-op with everyone in the clinic. I officially became part of the clinic on August 2023. In my free time I just chill with my cat, Daemon in the backyard while listening to music or indoors watching movies/tv shows. Looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies at the clinic!
It is with sad news we announce the passing of Gus. His songs will be deeply missed.
Hello there I’m Gus.
I enjoy hopping from branch to branch. Staring at myself in the mirror (cause I’m that good looking). I enjoy taking long baths in my drinking bowl, not my bathing bowl. Why be normal ;).
My job is when you come to visit us at the clinic I will serenade you with my music. Unless you have a headache you will find this very soothing.
Looking forward to singing my way into your heart.
See you soon.
HI!!! I’m Zeus. I live here at the clinic. My job is to make sure everyone is happy. I love getting kisses, tummy rubs, and ear rubs. Who doesn’t like a good ear rub?!
I’m always looking forward to meeting new friends. You can be a cat, dog or human makes no difference to me.
My favourite thing about living here is hanging out with the staff. Girls here spoil me!! Dr. Draboo is super nice she even lets me sit in her chair. I like helping her write her notes.
Come by anytime to say hi to me. There is a good chance I’ll say hi back.
See you soon!
