Dr. Janis Fisher D.V.M., CCRT


Dr. Fisher grew up in beautiful Fredericton, New Brunswick. She graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in 1997, and after working in Ontario for a few years, she moved to North Dartmouth, Massachusetts. While working in MA, Dr. Fisher became very interested in acupuncture to aid her patients suffering from orthopedic and neurologic diseases. She completed her course in Veterinary Acupuncture at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tuft’s University where she learned that TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) could help with so much more than just joints and nerves.

She pursued certification through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society and has been happily treating dogs, cats and even a few rats, ever since. While in MA, Dr. Fisher began her canine agility career with her less than enthusiastic Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever cross Lexie. Lexie’s lack of drive did not deter Dr. Fisher – she was hooked on agility!

Dr. Fisher’s love of the sport prompted her to seek further education in canine sports medicine. In 2010 she became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist (CCRT) through the Canine Rehabilitation Institute. One of her main areas of interest is in treating chronic soft tissue injuries in canine athletes. Dr. Fisher patients include many of the top canine athletes in the Maritimes. Dr. Fisher currently competes with her Australian Kelpie “Quick” and plans to run her young Jack Russel Terrier cross “Wow” if she could ever find the time to train her!

Realizing that so many of her patients would also benefit from Chiropractic care, Dr. Fisher pursued training through the Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Center and became a Certified Animal Chiropractor in 2015 and is a Member of the College of Animal Chiropractors. Chiropractic care has greatly improved the mobility of many of her senior and rehab patients. And it also keeps her K9 Athletes in tip-top shape.

Dr. Fisher also uses Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils with her family and pets. She

counsels owners on the safe use of essential oils and uses them daily in her rehabilitation practice. Full Circle is now incorporating essential oils into many aspects of our practice.

Acupuncture, Chiropractic, Rehabilitation and Essential Oils have helped Dr. Fisher to improve the quality of life of many canines and felines. Her new goal is to keep all pets, young and old, sports stars and couch potatoes, feeling great, moving well and ON THE GO!

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 902.461.0951. We will take a history of your pet over the phone, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. Once the examination is finished, we will call to discuss our recommended treatment plan over the phone and then return to your vehicle with your pet. Please ensure your pet has a properly fitted collar or is in a secure carrier. Please remove any additional clothing or blankets prior to our staff handling our patients to minimize risk to our team.

2. We are still OPEN but are now working in two shifts with reduced hours, reduced staff numbers and a need to close for extensive cleaning between shifts. Tuesday to Friday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

3. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

4. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus. You may see our team members wearing additional protective gear when interacting with our clients and patients.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
