Dr. Laura McKenny

Veterinarian

Dr. Laura is an extremely diverse veterinarian as she not only handles small companion pets but pocket pets and exotic pets as well. She loves the human-animal bond that develops between people and their animals. Dr. Laura had wanted to be a veterinarian ever since she was 5 years old spending time working with horses on her aunt’s farm. She made her dream a reality when she graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. After practising in British Columbia, Dr. Laura joined the Airdrie Animal Health Centre in 2014, drawn by the high expectation of care from an AAHA-accredited clinic. She enjoys surgery and dental care, as well as the challenges associated with working with a variety of exotic animal species. Dr. Laura likes the diversity of challenges our clinic has to offer as well as the supportive and fun work environment.

Laura is an avid traveller. She aspires to visit more than 50 countries in her lifetime. To date, she is already more than halfway to reaching her goal. At home, she has a shy sheltie named Jazz "Jazzy."
