Our Team

Dr. Kamin Mamaghani

Dr. Kamin Mamaghani graduated from Veterinary Medicine University in Iran in 1997. Shortly after, he started working in small and large animal medicine for five years. Upon moving to Canada in 2006, he worked efficiently in plenty of small animal practices along the way of getting his license. Since Dr. Kamin succeeds in achieving a Canadian veterinary license, he kept working in small animal practices. Subsequently, he opened his own animal hospital in the heart of Lonsdale, North Vancouver in April 2019. His enthusiasm for helping animals makes him a loyal and truthful veterinarian whose pattern is to ensure your pet lives a happy and healthy life. He hopes not only to meet but exceed all his clients’ and patients’ expectation. Dr. Kamin always encourages everyone at the hospital to believe in Happy Tails’ golden mission: “We value the opportunity to be a part of you and your pet’s life. It is our passion and our honor to care for your family.”

Dr. Alyssia Armborst

Dr. Alyssia Armborst grew up in Waterloo, Ontario and attended the University of Guelph where she received a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Biological Sciences. There afterwards she graduated with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2016 from the Ontario Veterinary College and worked as a companion animal practitioner in southwestern Ontario prior to relocating to Vancouver in the fall of 2021.

Dr. Alyssia has a particular interest in small animal nutrition, preventative health care, dermatology and palliative care. She has travelled to North Carolina to participate in spay and neuter clinics through the ASPCA Humane Alliance program and has provided accessible veterinary care in Toronto through community outreach programs. Outside of the clinic she enjoys horseback riding, yoga, Pilates, and exploring the beautiful west coast with her two handsome French bulldogs Darwin and Dalton (who also enjoy their “work” days at SVH where they are spoiled by the team with love, affection and hypoallergenic treats).
