Dr. Heather Reid
Dr. Heather Reid is a wildlife veterinarian with over 15 years experience. She has worked with more than 200 species of native wild animals in Canada’s busiest wildlife hospital. Her veterinary interests are many, ranging from orthopedic surgery to conservation medicine and she enjoys the challenges that come with working with wild patients. Whenever possible, Dr. Reid takes her clinical skills out of the hospital and into the field where she can work with wildlife in their natural habitat. Her work with conservation research projects has ranged from salamanders to wolverines and has taken her deep into the wilds of Canada’s forests. Dr. Reid is a member of the Canadian Association of Zoo and Wildlife Veterinarians. She has been an instructor for the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council, and has taught Chemical Immobilization of wildlife for the CAZWV. Dr. Reid enjoys working with students and has taught and mentored countless veterinary and veterinary technician students over the years. It is the enthusiasm and dedication of these students and volunteers that inspires Dr. Reid. She is excited to take the skills of volunteers to animal organizations around the world that can benefit from their help.
