Emergency clinic open 24 hours a day


Laura Amaral

Lead Animal Care Attendant
Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to work in the veterinary field. I have always had a love and passion for animals. I joined the North Town Veterinary Hospital Team in 2015. My favourite thing about the clinic is that every day brings something new and different, there is never a dull moment in emergency veterinary medicine. What I love most about my job is being the voice for the animals. The areas of veterinary medicine that interest me the most are radiology and nutrition. A fun fact about me is I grew up on my uncle’s farm, learning to help feed and clean all kinds of animals such as chickens, cows, goats, pigs and more. I also have 2 fur babies of my own, named Roxy and Nala.
