Kim Cavanaugh, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician, Certified Canine Rehab Tech

Kim was no stranger to us, we were thrilled to finally join forces with her in our transition in 2017. In addition to being a highly knowledgeable RVT, she is also a certified canine rehab technician (CCRT) and has recent completed a Dog Trainer Certificate program through DogNostics Education Center. Kim provides all of our rehabilitation patients with excellent ongoing care, this includes everything from post-operative TPLO care to aiding older animals with their mobility, through a variety of modalities, including massage, laser therapy, muscle conditioning exercises and hydrotherapy.

“From as young as I can remember, I had been bringing home animals to save. It just seemed natural to go into the industry”. I have been a registered full-time tech for 26 yrs, with 16 of those years as a rehab tech. My favourite thing about the clinic is the progressive, forward-thinking of the veterinarians and peers.

In addition to her work with rehabilitation, in her spare time, Kim also revels in canine training and behaviour with her Certified Service dog, TeeJay and her other dogs HiJinx and her newest young dog – Fynn, who is a 1 yr old border collie.
