Courtenay Large (Chen), Veterinarian


Dr. Courtenay Large has always called the Island her home, born and raised in Duncan. Courtenay worked towards a degree in animal biology at the University of Saskatchewan before her acceptance into the DVM program and worked at Island Animal Hospital for one summer while earning her vet degree. She graduated from the WCVM in Saskatoon, SK, near the top of her class, receiving various awards, including an award for clinical excellence in exotic pet medicine. Courtenay has a keen interest in exotic animal medicine and always looks forward to caring for a wide variety of species, and continuing to learn about them all along the way.

Courtenay is excited to be back on the Island and has been with us since she graduated from vet school. She is joined by her husband Charles, and their furry children, cats William and Henry, and dog Indie, and can’t wait to hopefully add a few goats to the family one day! In her spare time, Courtenay enjoys playing hockey and rugby, traveling, and exploring this beautiful island we are lucky enough to call home.
