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 5 years now, 1 year in Cranbrook and then 4 years in Nelson. Dr. Ayers is excited to welcome new patients and clients to continue providing a high standard of medicine and surgery.
She lives with her partner Ryan and 4 cats; 9-year old brothers “Link” and “Zedd”, 4-year old “Sailor”, 2-year old Mexican street cat “Pinto” that she rescued on her last vacation there; as well as their 2 dogs; 6-year old Bernese/Great Pyrenese mix “Axel” , 4-year old Kootenay mix “Noah” and “Summer” her 6-year-old QH mare.
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.
