Laura Arthur

Veterinary Assistant/Client Care Specialist

My name is Laura Arthur and I am a Veterinary Assistant working primarily on the front desk at Avon. I live in Lower Sackville with my two dogs Dallas and Diesel. I choose the veterinary field after working in the hardware industry for over 11 years, I have always had a passion for animals and their well being. I graduated from Davinci College in Oct 2017 with a Diploma as a Veterinary Hospital Assistant. I am interested in preventative care as well as anything on the equine side of things. The thing I love most about my job is helping peoples pets on a daily basis and the awesome group of dedicated people that I get to work with every day.

A fun fact about myself is that I started horseback riding when I was 9.
