Dre Stéphanie Boisclair, DMV

Stéphanie graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in St-Hyacinthe in 2014. She decided to come and work at the clinic since fall 2020 because she has a strong interest for refuge medicine. In addition to her love for cats and dogs, she will gladly take care of your exotics animals. From feathers to scales, without forgetting of course all other small mammals, she is always there for you and your little ones. She is also passionate about gardening and wildlife viewing.

Dr. Marie-Soleil Roy,DMV

Concerned about the well-being of nature and animals, Dr. Marie-Soleil Roy completed a bachelor’s degree in environment before embarking on her greatest passion, like her father, veterinary medicine. It is with great devotion that she takes care of your precious life companions. Conscientious and delicate, she will take the time to give you all the information you need, and to accompany you through the different stages of their lives. Minoune, a little rescue from the SPA, and Maisie, a retired racing greyhound, have long shared her life. Soon, another retired racing greyhound, a breed she’s particularly fond of, will be on her schedule!

“Taking care of nature and animals, is at the same time taking care of ourselves.”

Dre Julie Chapdelaine,
DMV, IPSAV in zoological medicine

Julie obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire de St-Hyacinthe in 2022. She then completed an internship in applied veterinary sciences in zoological medicine at the same institution. This 1-year internship enabled Julie to deepen her knowledge of exotic companion animal medicine, as well as wildlife, zoo and aquarium medicine. Even before beginning her studies in veterinary medicine, Julie was involved with the SPA de l’Estrie for several years. Julie has a particular interest in aquatic medicine, comparative medicine and shelter medicine. She shares her daily life with her rescued rabbit, cat and 2 goldfish. She is starting her career with us, offering exotic medicine for all your pets, whether reptiles, birds, fish or mammals.
