Dr. Laura Barnard



Dr. Laura graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2012, before completing both a rotating and neurology internship at OVC. She then practiced as an emergency veterinarian for a year at VCA Mississauga and Oakville Veterinary Hospital in Ontario. In 2015, she relocated to Madison, Wisconsin where she completed a three-year residency program in neurology and neurosurgery at the University of Wisconsin. She became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Neurology) in 2018 and went on to join Canada West. Dr. Barnard has recently relocated to Victoria after practicing in Vancouver at Canada West Veterinary Specialists for four years.

Dr. Barnard enjoys all aspects of both medical and surgical neurology but enjoys most neuroimaging with CT and MRI. She has two dogs (Praise and Goose) of her own and is looking forward to spending more time exploring on Vancouver Island.
