Jeremy knew he wanted to a veterinarian since he was a child. Growing up on a ranch near Estevan he was interested in science and biology. He loved medicine and animals but couldn’t stand the thought of being a human doctor.
Jeremy keeps three goals in mind when helping every patient; to understand the client’s needs, to do his best for the animal’s sake and to keep him and his team safe.
He shares his love of life with his three kids Jaycee, Sydney and Hugh. Brightening his life is his pets Jewel a cowboy corgi and his cat JJ. A bright spot in his life are his six horses that he spends more time with than any human in his life.
Andrea has had a lifelong attachment to animals, and becoming a veterinarian was a decision made when she was in grade 4. She went to the University of Manitoba, earning a degree in Agriculture (Animal Science) first, and then was accepted at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. Andrea graduated in 1992, and came to Weyburn to start working for Dr Gary Hoium.
Growing up on a cow-calf farm as a member of the Pipestone 4-H Beef & Heifer Club, she always enjoyed being around cattle, cats, dogs, and horses. Spending all that time with them came with a natural curiosity for wanting to know more about how to help an animal in need. She also was a bookworm and read a lot of Animal Ark and James Herriot Books, so being a veterinarian has been the goal since elementary school.
Her goal with every patient, big or small, is to have them as comfortable as possible. She accomplishes this by getting to know a nervous pet, calmly handling livestock, and providing pain relief.
Kendra shares her home with her cat Phoebe, which she raised since a kitten. Phoebe has a Cerebellar Hypoplasia (the portion of the brain that controls movement is smaller than usual) making her wobbly and unable to jump, but making her an expert at cuddles and loves to walk in the grass.
Kendra’s mantra is “Be well.”
