Suzanne has been a veterinarian at Snelgrove Veterinary Services since graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1992. In 1996, Suzanne left Snelgrove only to return five years later. Her relationships with both clients and patients are second to none. Compassionate, understanding and knowledgeable, she has proven to herself time and time again that veterinary medicine is her true calling.


She has taken her love for animals beyond the clinic and shares her home with 5 dogs, 3 cats, 3 horses, a bird and her husband, Rob. In her rare spare time, Suzanne can be found either mucking stalls or out riding her horses in the Caledon Hills.

Dr. Simone Herrlinger

Dr. Simone Herrlinger

Growing up in Germany and emigrating to Canada when she was 12, Simone grew up on a farm where she developed a deep passion for the health and welfare of animals. Simone graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2013 and spent her first 2 years practicing in the Ottawa area. She enjoys nurturing the human-animal bond and has a special interest in surgery. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, photography and spending time with her dog Tipsy and cats, Minnie and Winston.

Helen

Helen

Helen has been the practice manager and head technician at Snelgrove Veterinary Services since 1990. When she started here, Snelgrove was a large animal clinic that served the many dairy farms in the area. As the years progressed and the farms moved farther and farther North, Helen helped change Snelgrove into a predominately small animal hospital, focusing on dogs and cats. Although many of you wouldn’t recognize Helen, most of your pets would know her as the person who helped care for them during their stays and trips to the back office. Helen and Dave share their home with their 4 children, her mother and 3 dogs, Tucker, Spike and Hudson.

Donna

Donna

Donna is our Front Office Manager and Patient Care Advocate here at Snelgrove Veterinary Services. She has been warmly welcoming and working with both clients and patients since 1995. Donna's day focuses on following up with special care cases and ensuring our patients are receiving the best care possible. Donna and her husband, Randy, have made it a priority in their lives to provide a loving home for their many cats and dogs, with a new addition of an outdoor frog pond. Donna actively helps find homes for dogs, cats and other pets and is a firm believer in rescue, adoption and fostering.


On a non-animal related note; Donna has a special passion for gardening and we would like to thank her for always keeping our gardens bright, beautiful, colourful and flourishing.

Stephanie

Stephanie

After successfully completing the Animal Care program at Sheridan College, Stephanie immediately joined our team here at Snelgrove Veterinary Services in 2001.

Always greeting everyone with a smile when they come through the door, Kaitlin is a receptionist here at Snelgrove Veterinary Services. She has been actively working and volunteering in veterinary hospitals since 2003, and completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph in 2009. On her days off, Kait enjoys exploring the many surrounding hiking trails and natural wonders with her husband Andrew and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Rennik.

When she finds time for herself, she loves nothing more than curling up with a good book and her cats, Adelaide and Everley.

Lynnette, RVT

Lynnette, RVT

Lynnette has worked in the veterinary field since 1990, initially as an animal care attendant, then becoming a receptionist and then graduating from Seneca College in 1999 as a registered veterinary technician (RVT). Working at a busy clinic in Etobicoke for many years, Lynnette took some time off to raise her 2 children, before trying her hand at being an equine RVT at a local horse hospital. After they closed their doors in January 2015, Lynnette went back to working with small animals again at a veterinary hospital in Orangeville before joining the team at Snelgrove Vet Services in January 2016. Lynnette currently lives at her home in Caledon with her husband, two preteen children, and their crazy Boston terrier, Woody. She enjoys reading, hiking, swimming and canoeing, and can’t wait for the next animal in-need to join her family.
