Always having a love of animals, it was only natural that Dr. Hasselaar began her career early in veterinary medicine when she was 16 years old as a kennel attendant. After completing her undergraduate at Simon Fraser University, she became a licensed Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at WCVM in Saskatchewan and moved back to beautiful British Columbia to practice in the field.
Dr. Hasselaar has one senior dog, a lovely Chocolate Labrador, Larry, who enjoys a hypoallergenic diet of Purina Veterinary Diet HA Hydrolyzed and Royal Canin Hypo HP canned. She also has three senior cats, Queenie, Chester, and Virgo, and they all get Purina Veterinary Diet’s DH diet with Essential Care canned formula and a kitten that she delivered by emergency C-Section named Cash who enjoys Royal Canin Developmental Kitten.
For hobbies and free time, Dr. Hasselaar prefers her time spent outdoors. She is partial to going on walks and hikes (with Larry of course), exercising, and enjoying a good book in her down time.
We are proud to inform you that Dr. Hasselaar is in the process of becoming a Fear Free Certified Professional.
