Janet - Veterinary Technician
Janet has many years of diverse experience in a number of animal care situations. Much of that has been in small and mixed animal practices, with a sprinkling of work in microbiology, as well as postmortem government labs to round out her portfolio.
Janet's love for animals began with her beloved childhood pets. In college she pursued her training as a Veterinary Technician. Later, she delighted in raising her three children on a hobby farm in rural Ontario.
Moving west in 2007, Janet continued to work in the field of veterinary care. Sharing her hillside home on Salt Spring with Roland, much of her spare time is spent caring for her numerous and much loved animals.
Janet's wee menagerie currently includes a variety of breeds of chickens, alpacas, goats, a sheep, pot belly pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, tortoises, two Boston Terriers and a kitten!
As well, Janet grows a big garden and enjoys beach combing and creating wood crafts - with of course, precious time taken to visit her growing family of grandchildre!
