Laura White, DVM

Laura White grew up on an acreage in rural Manitoba, where her parents still reside.  She attended the university of Manitoba prior to being accepted into the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  Laura graduated in 2008 and was awarded the Alexander Janz Memorial Award for Excellence in Large Animal Anesthesia.

Laura has always had a passion for animals, and has owned and ridden horses for most of her life. her past experiences include working on a dairy farm and as a groom on the thoroughbred racetrack in Winnipeg. Following graduation in 2008, Laura moved to Vanderhoof, BC and worked as an associate veterinarian. The challenges and variety of rural mixed animal practice made for a great start to Laura’s career.

In the fall of 2011, Laura and her husband Dan moved to the Okanagan.  Laura began working as a locum (relief) veterinarian throughout the province, as well as starting a mobile large animal practice.  It was as a locum that Laura first came to Pemberton. After falling in love with the valley and the practice, Laura and Dan moved here permanently in the spring of 2013. Laura purchased the Pemberton Veterinary Hospital in the spring of 2014.

Outside of work, Laura spends much of her time with her two horses, Sunny & Dora and her border collie, Arrow. Laura enjoys the outdoors, particularly hiking and exploring beautiful British Columbia.
