Amrita Banerjee

Veterinarian

 

Dr. Amrita Banerjee graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2012. Her main areas of interest include preventive care, pain management, geriatrics, and the unique needs of avian and exotic patients. Over the last nine years, her patients have been evenly split between avian/exotic species and feline/canine ones. She is excited to continue working with all these amazing creatures, both seeing them for appointments and performing surgical procedures.

 

Outside of work Dr. Banerjee enjoys gardening and spending time outdoors in all seasons: backcountry camping, canoeing, snowshoeing and hiking. She shares her home with her husband, her lovely cat, Mango, and her adventurous dog, Badger.
