How We Started

With a team of pet lovers, we strive to provide the best care possible for pets and compassion to their families.

Meet our Team
Our caring and compassionate veterinary team
After graduating with honors from the college of veterinary medicine, I started practicing veterinary medicine in northern Ontario for a few years. This is when I developed a special interest in small animal surgery and emergency medicine. I then moved to continue practicing at multiple emergency clinics in Niagara and Hamilton areas for few more years.
I always had the pleasure to work around excellent well educated and trained staff that shared my value of practice that is focused mainly on client education. I enjoy educating clients about the care of their pet, help them understand better the preventive medicine and take good care of their furry
family members. When emergencies happen, client education and understanding is key in making decisions and plans to save their beloved furry babies. Nothing more rewarding at the end of my day than seeing that smile on pet family faces knowing their beloved babies are now healthy and happy again.
I highly appreciate continuing education for myself and staff and to implement new tools of medicine towards improving quality of life for our furry family members and strengthen that bond with their owners. During my free time you will find me busy with my family, playing tennis, and reading.

Dr Michèle Morissette, D.C., C.A.C. graduated cum laude in Dec 1989 from Cleveland chiropractic college in Kansas City. She became a member of Ordre des chiropracticiens du Québec in 1990. She has owned her own clinic since 1990. She became a member of the Ontario College of Chiropractor early in 2013 and became a certified chiropractor in August 2013.
Dr Morissette studied animal chiropractic at Options for animal, college of animal chiropractors, in Wellsville Kansas, a school that is accredited by American Veterinary Chiropractic Association, International Veterinary Chiropractic Association and the Kansas Boards of Regents.
After being proficient at adjusting the human spine for 23 years (now 29), and being the owner of 2 dogs herself, the transition to animal chiropractic care has come naturally
As an animal chiropractor, Dr Morissette is highly trained to locate and correct areas of the spine known as subluxations (areas of the spine that are not moving adequately and cause irritation along the nerves) Veterinary Chiropractic treatment does not replace traditional veterinary medicine; however, it can provide additional means of diagnosis and treatment options for spinal problems as well as biomechanical related neuromusculoskeletal disorders. Veterinary Chiropractic can often eliminate the source of acute or chronic pain syndromes.
