Allysha Barton, RVT

Allysha is our third Veterinary Technologist, and graduated from Douglas College in 2016, and it's been great having her here since she graduated.  She was raised on Vancouver Island, and lives here with her boyfriend Tyler and their beloved cat Julius.  She loves all animals, but especially cats, and any of our feline patients get extra TLC from her.  Outside of work she enjoys video games, comics and anime.  

Winona Billings

Winona started working in 2017 as a receptionist/veterinary assistant.  She has been another great addition to our team, and is a huge animal lover (as we all are) with a very kind nature.  She lives on a small hobby farm in Shawnigan Lake with her husband, two daughters, and their two dogs, four cats, chickens and horses.
