Dhivyah Ratnakumar Veterinary Assistant

I chose the veterinary field due to my strong passion for animals and the need to always heal them. Successfully helping pets and educating owners gives me a sense of satisfaction since they are a family member.

I am currently finishing my undergraduate degree in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph. The goal is to attend Ontario Veterinary College in the near future. I have never pictured myself doing anything else! I enjoy every aspect of veterinary medicine, but currently am interested in preventative care. Prevention is key to entailing good animal welfare and having a healthy pet thus my keen interest in this field. The reward of seeing clients satisfied with our excellent quality of care sparks my happiness.

I am a mother to Kyro the shih tzu mix, along with two bonded holland lop rabbits named Hazel and Nugget. A fun fact about myself is that I am allergic to animals, including my own but keep thriving with proper medications. My love to help animals has nothing on my allergies!
