Dr. Terry Eisen
Terry grew up in Southern Ontario. Although Toronto was her home, her family owned a farm near Shelburne, Ontario and she spent as much time as possible working with the animals there. At various times there were chickens, ducks, cattle and 2 horses rescued from the truck on the way to the packing plant. She combined her love of the animals with her science studies and at the age of 14 decided that she wanted to become a veterinarian.
Terry did her undergraduate degree in biological science at the University of Guelph and went on to the Ontario Veterinary College, graduating in 1985. For the first 5 years of her career she worked in Toronto. She loved the work but hated the lifestyle (and the hour commute every day on Hwy 401) so she moved west and settled in Vancouver in 1990.
She worked in various clinics in BC for a couple of years before deciding that she wanted to open a practice of her own; one which reflected her skills, personality and philosophy. The doors of Kitsilano Animal Clinic were opened on April 2, 1992.
Terry lives and plays in Kits, and can often be seen at the various dog parks and beaches with her dog Violet, her fourth Labrador in a succession of fine beach hounds. She loves to travel when she can, read everything she can get her hands on and is an avid movie fan.
She believes strongly that life is greatly enriched with animals by your side; their companionship, humour and love are invaluable.
