Dr. Anne Woolstencroft

Veterinarian

Dr. Anne graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1998, and she established the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2005. Although she enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, her special interests include internal medicine, pain management and behaviour. Her pets include two cats: Chandler Bing and Sushi.

Dr. Catherine Mailhot

Veterinarian

Dr. Catherine graduated from the Université de Montréal, Faculté de médecine vétérinaire in 1995. She has worked in Quebec, British Columbia and Ontario, and joined the WVH team in 2006. She is happy to speak in French if that is a client’s preference.  Her special interests are in dermatology, soft tissue surgery and ophthalmology. In 2013, Dr. Catherine adopted a new kitten who her kids named “Mini Bug”.   “Mini” is quite a mischievous character and keeps Dr. Catherine and her family on their toes with all of her shenanigans at home!  

Dr. Stephanie Delorme

Veterinarian

After her undergraduate degree, Dr. Steph went on to complete a Master of Science in Biomedical Science at the University of Guelph in 2011.   She recently completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at the Ontario Veterinary College and joined our team here in 2017.    She has a special interest in pathology, histology, cytology and reptile medicine.    Since we only practice medicine on cats and dogs at WVH, she gets her “reptile fix” by caring for her six leopard geckos at home.   She also shares her home with her two dogs, Bradley & Billy and her one-eyed rescue kitten, Lily.

Dayna

Registered Veterinary Technician

Dayna graduated from Seneca College in 1998. In addition to her role as an RVT, Dayna is the Hospital Manager. She has been with the WVH team since day one! Her special interests are client relations, laboratory procedures and providing in-hospital/intensive care to our patients. She also holds a special place in her heart for the unhappy feline visitors, and works hard to make their experience as stress-free as possible.

Her pets are:

Adelaide, an Australian Shepherd/Lab cross

Maggie, a very senior dilute calico cat.

And the newest addition Otis.   He was supposed to be a temporary houseguest…but quickly won over Dayna’s heart with his very sweet & affectionate nature with people…despite how grumpy his face tends to look!

Jenny

Registered Veterinary Technician

After completing a Bachelors of Science in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph, Jenny continued her education at U of G and completed the diploma of Veterinary Technology at the Ridgetown Campus. She became a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) after successful completion of the Veterinary Technician National Examination.

 

Jenny has loved animals her whole life – and has worked with both large and small animals before joining our team at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2017. She enjoys all aspects of her role as an RVT, but is especially interested in surgery and anesthesia. Jenny has a calm and caring demeanor – and is able to put even our nervous patients more at ease!

Jenny has a menagerie of pets at home including:

Dawson & Skye

Viper, Dot & Sven

And rats Helga, Rowena, Salazar, Godric & Daniel RATcliffe (D.R. for short)

Michaela

Michaela graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Georgian College in 2018. She completed the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE) later that year successfully becoming an RVT. She joined our team at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2019. Throughout her schooling and placements Michaela has developed a special interest in surgery and anesthesia.

Her love of animals started at home having grown up with a variety of pets including cats, dogs, fish and hamsters. Currently the furry members of her family include:

Marley – her 90lbs Border Collie Poodle mix who believes he is a lap dog

Ruby – a not so smart but very lovable cat

Kim

Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant

Kim joined the WVH team in 2008. She really enjoys greeting clients, especially if they bring in puppies and kittens! She is our resident “neat freak” and is great at keeping the hospital environment clean and tidy. Kim just loves chatting with our clients and we all enjoy hearing her laughter throughout the clinic!

She has a lovely Labradoodle named Mackenzie (“Dar” for short) & a cute Bichon/Poodle cross named:

Charlotte (aka “Char” or “Tiny”)

And a sweet kitty named Lacey

Laura

Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant

Laura joined our team in 2009. She enjoys interacting with clients, and keeping the reception area organized and running smoothly. Laura is a true “mom” and keeps a close eye on all of the staff, ensuring we are doing okay, and even providing homemade treats for our staff meetings! She takes a special interest in our clinic cats Lou Lou & Misha and was especially close to our dear clinic kitty Josie who passed away in 2012.

She has two beautiful cats, Holly and Belle

Andrea

Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant

Andrea started at WVH in 2016 as a volunteer, but soon joined our team as a Receptionist/Veterinary Assistant.

She shares her home with:

A Polish Lowland Sheepdog named Iago, Lily a Hedgehog and a cockatiel named Bird!

Cathie

Veterinary Assistant

Cathie has worked at veterinary hospitals for many years. She initially volunteered at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital when we opened in 2005, and then was offered an official position in 2007. Known as the resident “cat whisperer,” she is renowned for her calming effect on our unhappy feline visitors.

Her cats are:

Millie – who enjoys helping with puzzles 

…and Tetley – who has no respect for anyone’s privacy in the tub!

Michaela

Veterinary Assistant

Michaela joined our team in 2017 as a part-time job while a student in school. She is pursuing her studies in the education system where we know she will do well. Michaela has a very sweet and compassionate nature, which the school children in her future will benefit from, and the animals who she cares for here at Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital truly appreciate!

Heidi

Veterinary Assistant

Heidi completed her Masters of Science in Epidemiology at the University of Guelph and joined our team in 2018 to gain more experience in a hospital setting as she pursues a career in veterinary medicine. She has a great love for animals and has worked with them in different settings for a number of years.

Lou Lou

Clinic Cat

Lou Lou was surrendered to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2005. She quickly became an integral part of our hospital team, providing lots of purring and the occasional crazy run through the treatment area to keep us laughing. Lou Lou is a character, often cuddling up with her best buddy Adelaide (a dog), and “helping” the staff members by walking on their keyboards while they are working. Lou Lou loves dogs and kids — she will sometimes make her way to the front when she hears kids playing at our children’s table.   She is now 19 years old, so there is less running through the clinic, and more napping, but she can still get a little lively when dinner is served or it is time for a brush!  

And yes, she is cross-eyed.

Misha

Clinic Cat

Misha was surrendered to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital in 2018. Our intention was to make sure she was healthy and then find her a forever home, but we all quickly fell in love with her and decided her forever home was with us!  She is quick to greet clients at the reception desk, when she is not snoozing contently on her bed or in the cat tree by the window.   Though she appears to have “resting grumpy face”, she is very sweet and loves any and all attention from visitors!

Josie – a “Microchip Failure Story”

(in memoriam 1999 - 2012)

Josie was one of our clinic cats for over 4 years. Sadly, in October of 2012 she became very ill, and we had to say goodbye.

She is our “microchip failure story.” She was brought to the Williamsburg Veterinary Hospital as a stray, and as is our policy, we scanned her for a microchip. We were thrilled to see she had one, and told the Good Samaritans who brought her in that we would reunite her with her family. Unfortunately, the people who had microchipped Josie did not register their address or phone number with the microchip facility. We traced her microchip back and found that she had originally been adopted from the humane society 6 years prior at about 3 years of age. After a long, unsuccessful search for her owner, we decided that Josie could live with us.

Josie spent most of her time sleeping at the front desk or on top of the shelves in the pharmacy and became well known to our clients visiting the clinic. She was a true delight, always willing to share a purr and a head bump. She is still remembered fondly by our staff members who knew and loved her!
