Dr. Heather Aitken
Heather grew up mostly in Ottawa, Ontario. After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2004 she joined the team at Grenville-Dundas Veterinary Services in Kemptville and then the Rideau-St. Lawrence Veterinary Services team with the merger of the two clinics in 2009. Currently, she works full time in Ottawa with the Veterinary Drugs Directorate but still has a keen interest in bovine and small ruminant medicine and surgery. She continues to practice as an on-call veterinarian with our clinic, while working with individual sheep and goat producers as well. In her spare time you can find her at her kids’ sporting events, the hockey arena, or picking the banjo at a bluegrass festival.
