Emily Horton

Registered Veterinary Technician

I originally began my post-secondary education at the University of Ottawa, thinking that teaching was what I wanted to go into. After much "soul searching," I realized that my true passion has always been with helping and caring for animals. At the age of 25, I made the switch and completed my Pre-Health Sciences program at Georgian College and later completed the Veterinary Technician program at Georgian's Orillia campus in April of 2018. I wrote my VTNE in August of 2018 and am happy to say that I was successful in obtaining my Registered status. I have special interests in Anesthesia and Dentistry. For me, this career is about helping to give a voice to the "voiceless" and providing the best care for animals. I started with my amazing team at North Town Veterinary Hospital in November 2018 and love that the clinic is an emergency clinic.

A fun fact about me is that my first pet was a Chocolate Lab named Mavi and I can speak French.

Community Parks and Dogs

End of school is here!  As a mum of two young boys, we live in our little park. Dogs pass through with their owners enjoying an evening walk, the kids are playing grounders and building sand castles, and the parents are unwinding from a hectic day at work and after-school activities.
