Practicing Since:

1994

Originally from southern Ontario, Dr. Veach received her veterinary degree from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1994. Following her graduation she moved to Toronto where she enjoyed general small animal practice for five years. The lure of beautiful Vancouver Island then succeeded in enticing Dr. Veach and her husband to relocate to Victoria.

The realization of a genuine interest in emergency medicine and critical care led Dr. Veach to Central Victoria Veterinary Clinic where she began working as an emergency veterinarian in 1999. She continues to be driven to strive for the best individualized care for every patient and client.

In her spare time Dr. Veach enjoys spending time with her family, riding horses, swimming, gardening and other outdoor activities.

Emergency Care

Emergencies happen. When they do, our highly trained emergency veterinary healthcare team is dedicated to helping you and your companion any time of the day. No appointment is necessary. Whenever possible, our veterinarians work in consultation with your primary care veterinarian.

Triage/waiting:

We do everything possible to ensure that every patient receives timely access to veterinary care. Like human emergency rooms, we operate on a triage system – this means that more seriously ill or injured patients are seen before less seriously ill or injured patients. During high-volume times patients with minor ailments and injuries can experience longer wait times.

What happens “in the back”?

At times, potentially seriously injured or ill patients may be taken straight into our hospital’s triage room or treatment areas based on our triage system. These patients will be assess by a doctor immediately and receive life-saving treatment such as fluids and oxygen and/or pain medication when appropriate.
