Emergency clinic open 24 hours a day


Dr. Cathy Hooper

I wanted to be a vet when I was three years old and that never changed. The gift of being able to help an animal in need and their human family is a true blessing and I am honoured to be able to do that. I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1993 and owned my own practice in Caledon. I have recently sold my practice and have semi-retired. North Town is a wonderful place to work and I am so thankful that they welcomed me into their family. I enjoy all areas of medicine and surgery but I really enjoy interacting with clients and their fur babies. I have been married to my soulmate Glenn, for 26 years and we have 2 sons, Chris and Dale. We enjoy cottage life in Huntsville and also spend a lot of time travelling to watch our boys play university and semi-pro volleyball.
