Jessica Feere

Registered Veterinary Technician

I grew up and still live on a hobby farm in a small town west of St. Thomas. Growing up we had almost every animal imaginable both big and small. This helped grow my love for animals. I studied Veterinary Technology at Ridgetown College and graduated in 2019.

I joined Elgin Animal Hospital in February of 2020. The area in my field that interests me the most would have to be Dentistry. There is nothing more satisfying than cleaning teeth that have a lot of tartar build up and revealing the true nature of the tooth underneath. It's always rewarding to see the difference between the before and after of a dental.

Some things I love most about this job is that I learn something new almost every day. Also, no day is ever the same. Days can be challenging, difficult, rewarding, fun and sometimes all of the above. The best part about this clinic are the people that I get to work with. It's enjoyable to work in a place where everyone has a similar mindset and are passionate about what we do.

My first pet that I can remember getting was a tortie cat named Lisa. She was always close by me when I was a kid and she would sleep with me every night. I currently have a few pets of my own. I have 2 goats named Knox and Boone, a bunny named Vanilla, an English Mastiff named Briggs and lastly, a cat named Dexter.
