RaeAnne Emmell

Registered Veterinary Technician

When I was 12, I had actually decided that I wanted to be an auto-mechanic. I did a high school co-op at a shop and decided that it was not the career path for me. My backup plan was always to do something with animals and at one point I decided that I wanted to be an SPCA Officer. I then attended an agricultural fair at my high school and there were a few colleges that were showcasing their veterinary technician program.

After doing a little more research, I decided that this was the career path that I wanted to pursue. I attended the veterinary technician program at the University of Guelph, Alfred Campus where I graduated in December 2012. I joined the team in December 2016. I am very interested in dentistry! My short-term career goal is to pursue a dental certification program, and long-term career goal is to pursue a veterinary technician specialty in dentistry.

What I love most about my job is being able to combine animals (which I love) and the medical field (which I also love!) in one great package! It’s always a great feeling when you get to pursue your passion! My favourite thing about the clinic is the positive work environment and the amazing team that I get to work with every day!

I love to cook, bake and I am very crafty! My first pet was a hamster named Roxy.

This is an amazing thing – for the new pet owner and for the pet.  However, one of the other spikes we see on an almost daily basis at the hospital is the need for new owner to attach “a story” to their pet's behaviours – particularly in the instance of “rescue” dogs.  In rescue situations, many of the dogs arrive with unknown histories and many of the dogs demonstrate specific or generalized fear and anxiety.
