Congratulations Dr. April and a Letter from Drs. Rob and Elaine

To our clients, colleagues and friends,

In 1997, two young veterinarians arrived in Trail, BC with little more than their veterinary degrees and a baby on the way. They needed a fresh start, an income and a place to raise their children. They had no idea what was in store for them, they closed their eyes and jumped head first into the challenges of practice ownership and parenthood.
