Providing an outstandinglevel of health care forour animal patients.

Dr. Katie MacDonald

I completed Internship in Zoological, Exotics and Wildlife Medicine, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatoon.

I am a small animal clinician with our Community Practice service. We are a group of primary care veterinarians who provide day to day care and focus on preventative medicine. My favourite thing about being a general practioner is being able to do a little bit of everything: surgery, medicine, preventative care all the while trying to take a practical approach. I am passionate about helping owners make decisions for their pets health that best suit the pet and their family.

I come from a family of sports fanatics and during my time at UPEI/AVC I competed on the field hockey team and in a variety of other club sports. I am a huge Pittsburg Steelers fan and when not chatting about your beloved pet, I love to talk sports!
