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).
