Dr. Laura Teminski, DVM
Hello, my name is Laura and I am the newest team member at Hillcrest Animal Hospital! My hometown is Kitchener, ON, so some people may say I’m a ‘Big City Girl,’ but I enjoy being outdoors. I look forward to many new adventures in the Quinte West area and hope to spend lots of time on the water or on wine tours. Currently, my fur family consists of Zhargon (the family cat) and Reiko (my leopard gecko), however, I foresee new additions in the future. I’m a brand-new graduate from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2018 and previously studied Animal Biology at the University of Guelph in 2014. I've made the thrilling decision to join Hillcrest Animal Hospital as of June 2018. Some areas of the veterinary industry that interest me are feline-specific medicine, orthopedics, and cardiology. The aspect I love the most about being a veterinarian is creating connections with my patients and clients; to be a support system and friend through all the journeys of a pet’s life. Not to mention having kitten and puppy cuddles is pretty amazing! My favourite thing about Hillcrest is the staff! They were immediately warm, welcoming and have a great sense of humour. I look forward to many days ahead with them. I’ve played competitive soccer and volleyball from a very young age and continue to do so, I can’t wait to start watching the FIFA World Cup.
