Dr Laurie Weber
Dr Laurie Weber was raised in Calgary and has always had a love for animals. She completed a Bachelor of Science in Zoology at The University of Calgary in 1988. She then went on to receive her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, with Distinction, from Saskatoon’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine, graduating in 1992. Laurie enjoys all aspects of health care, including medicine and soft tissue surgery, and has a special interest in dermatology, having completed a Masters course in Dermatology for Small Animal Veterinarians in 2011 through Massey University in New Zealand. Laurie also enjoys developing relationships with both people and their pets.
After graduating Laurie spent time working first in Saskatoon, followed by several years in Kelowna before returning to Calgary. She spent the next two decades raising her daughters and multiple fur kids while employed at a variety of Calgary small animal clinics. Although Calgary has been home for many years Laurie jumped at the opportunity to resettle in the small, intimate community of Qualicum Beach. When not working, Laurie can be found with Wren, her Flat Coated Retriever, exploring the lovely areas near her home, while searching for new subjects to paint. Laurie also enjoys spending time with friends and family.
Registered Veterinary Technologist/Owner
Darcie lived in Saskatoon, then moved with her family to an acreage just outside of Calgary as a young child. Life on the acreage included caring for cats, dogs, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens and ducks, and taking part in the 4H program. Her passion for animals led her to completion of the Animal Health Technologist program at Olds College. After graduation in 1996, she began working in Calgary clinics caring for, and gaining experience in treating wildlife, exotic animals, and small animals. She has volunteered with the Alberta Animal Task Force, Calgary Humane Society, ARF Rescue and Calgary Wildlife Rehabilitation Society. She has a special interest in animal welfare, spay and neuter initiatives, and anesthesia and nutrition.
In her spare time, Darcie enjoys her fur and feather family of 2 rescue dogs, Izzy and Kira, 3 rescue cats Hughie, Milo, and Joey, 2 parrots (Eclectus), Oliver and Dora, and Moe, her 24 year old Mourning Dove, another rescue. They all get along together! She, the dogs, and Oliver (in his parrot backpack) enjoy discovering the beautiful pathways around Qualicum/Parksville area, and she can often be found at the local garden nurseries looking for new plants for her garden.
It has been her dream to move to the Island and own a vet clinic for many years and when the opportunity came to do both , she jumped at the chance. She hopes this will allow her to serve the community and the animals living in it with compassion and kindness for many years to come.
