Dr. John Clark
From an early age it was clear to me that whatever my career path was, it had to involve working with animals. Initially I trained as a Marine Biologist, however after a few years, I knew that working with animals that were loved family members was more in line with my ethos and appreciation of other living beings.
After completing a B.Sc. at University of Victoria and working as a contract biologist for a couple of years, I was accepted into Western College of Veterinary Medicine and completed my DVM degree in 1991. I worked my first 10 yrs as a vet in Parksville, BC before moving to the bright lights of Vancouver, where I live with my daughter Ella, son Jack.and our two pooches Jake and Riley. The last 13 years I was an owner of Granville Island Veterinary Hospital, leaving my position as President and Managing Partner in 2015.
I was impressed with the team at Point Grey and truly believe in their philosophy of quality medicine and client education. Dr. Chan's sincerity, compassion, and dedication were major reasons I was happy to join her team. It is exciting to be joining Point Grey Animal Hospital at this stage of my career and my affinity for challenging soft tissue surgery will be a good addition to the team, I believe.
I feel blessed to have a career that allows me to connect with wonderful people and their pets on such an intimate level. As vets, we have the the privilege of dealing with a special subset of people – those who love their animals!
I look forward to meeting you and your furry family members soon.
