Dr. Elizabeth Croft

Veterinarian

Dr. Croft grew up on a farm near Lunenburg, NS surrounded by a menagerie of animals. Becoming a Veterinarian was a natural step.

She is a graduate of the University of Guelph and obtained her DVM at the AVC in 1994. She delights in practicing small animal medicine as each day can bring new and interesting challenges. Her special interests are feline medicine, geriatric and palliative medicine, and apiary care.

In her spare time, she enjoys being annoyed by her cat, making pies, pickling and making jams and jellies.

Fun Fact: Dr. Croft has a collection of antique glass nesting hens.
