Sydney - RAHT
Sydney has always had a passion for both science and animals, and found veterinary medicine to be the perfect combination of both. After doing a practicum with us for her studies, we are elated that she's decided to permanently join our team. Sydney is wonderful to have around, she's always smiling and is great with patients and clients alike. Her goal is to provide the best care she can for her patients to improve their quality of life. Sydney has the smallest animal family of any of our staff, having only one cat named Roz. (We'll fix that soon!) With her chipper and caring personality we are so glad she's decided to stay at Ospika. We look forward to seeing what special interests Sydney develops as she continues in this career.
