It’s #FeatureFriday ! And we’re putting our very own team in the spotlight (cuz they’re that great)! This week, we’re getting to know the newest member of our family: Dr. Nicole Hogle – BSc, DVM!

What made you want to enter the field of veterinary medicine?

“I have always wanted to be a veterinarian since as long as I can remember. I also remember never even considering another career. I wanted to be a vet because I wanted to help animals, and I also really enjoy the cognitive challenge of a difficult case. So in this field you get the reward of solving the case, but more importantly of making an animal feel better.”

Do you have a specialty or favourite area to work in (geriatrics, pain, oncology, surgery, etc)?

“There are so many things, I’m not sure what to pick! I really enjoy the daily preventative medicine, geriatric patients and surgery. I also have interest in ocular (eye) cases. I love that I can make an older animal feel more comfortable and happy by doing simple things like teaching clients about the benefits of dentistry , providing pain relief, or recommending supplements. I honestly just love working with the people and developing relationships with them and their pets.”

What do you love most about working at Centre Street Animal Hospital?

“The thing I love most about this clinic is our team. Seeing as I’m the newest team member, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I love how harmonious everyone’s relationships are, and that they can make me laugh. I love that we can work well and efficiently together during the busy times, and really enjoying spending time with everyone when times are slower.”
