Pat Waters

Client Care Representative
I joined North Town Veterinary Hospital in 2007. My favourite thing about the clinic is the round-the-clock professional and compassionate care that we give. What I love most about my job is interacting with the furry babies' parents; helping guide them to proper nutrition and reinforcing the veterinarian's health care plan. Fun fact about me is that I love animals, love to garden, crafts of all sorts, home renovating, furniture refinishing, spending time with family. My family is very important to me! My first pet was "Sammy," a dog I bought from a farmer when I was ten. My parents weren't too happy, but I got to keep him. My sister and I had to tell my father he was a Miniature Poodle, which he knew was not really true as he had huge feet. We think he was a Labrador/Collie cross.
