Danielle Zwueste, Neurology


I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2012 and began a rotating internship in Toronto that fall. I didn’t know exactly which direction my career would take at that time, but I had loved being a veterinary student and I knew that I wanted to continue my education. It didn’t take long to fall in love with neurology once the internship started and to decide that this was the field for me. I moved to the United States in 2013 to begin a residency in neurology and neurosurgery at the University of California, Davis. I completed the program in 2016 and successfully achieved board certification status. I returned to the WCVM to start a neurology service, where I had the pleasure of combining clinical practice with teaching veterinary students. I was also able to help advance veterinary neurology through research.

I am incredibly excited to be making the transition to private practice, a career change that will allow me to focus on clinical work. I love so many things about my job, including that I am able to help dogs and cats (and their owners!) dealing with both medical and surgical problems of the nervous system. It is an incredibly challenging and rewarding career and I can’t imagine doing anything else.

I have 2 cats (Holly and Cornelius) and a dog (Tundra) of my own, all of whom are rescues. Tundra, a husky mix, is the only one who will be sad to leave the cold prairie winters behind. I like to consider my self an amateur outdoor enthusiast and I am looking forward to kayaking, scuba diving, rock climbing, camping and hiking here on the beautiful west coast. Another passion of mine is aerial silks, something I became involved in over 2 years ago.

I am so excited to be able to call British Columbia home and I am looking forward to meeting everyone in the community.
