Dr. Amy Ayers
Dr. Ayers was born in Pemberton, but has since moved all over BC including Lillooet, Powell River Williams Lake, and Prince George. She loves the Kootenays because it reminds her of Pemberton with the mountains, lakes and snowy winters…. without all the traffic!
She received her BSc in Chemistry from UNBC in Prince George in 2008, DVM from the WCVM in Saskatoon in 2014. Graduated with the Vandi Award for Excellence in Equine Care and Patient Advocacy (the latter being something that she is pretty passionate about). She has been practicing veterinary medicine for 8 years now, 1 year in Cranbrook, then 4 years in Nelson and now currently here with us! Dr. Ayers is excited to continue providing a high standard of medicine and surgery.
She currently lives with her Husky mix "Noah",a sweet, fast growing, Bernese Mountain mix "Atlas" and 4 cats; brothers “Link” and “Zedd”, “Sailor”, and a Mexican street cat “Pinto” that she rescued on her last vacation there; she also has "Summer" an QH mare.
Dr. Ayers is currently on Maternity leave as she welcomed her new beautiful baby in December.
Dr. Ayers enjoys all aspects of practicing veterinary medicine but what she really loves is surgery! “A chance to cut is a chance to cure!” She is always looking to refine and expand her surgical skills whether it is a routine ovariohysterectomy, an emergency foreign body enterotomy, or a diagnostic skin mass removal.
