Christy MacDonald

Veterinary Assistant

Christy began her career as a Veterinary Assistant 20 years ago, after graduating from the Maritime Business College in 2001. She joined Sackville Animal Hospital in 2005 where she remained for 7 years before moving to New Brunswick with her young family. After spending 9 years in NB, she recently moved back to NS - the place she calls home, and once again joined the Sackville Animal Hospital family. She loves seeing some of the familiar faces of clients from her early days, as well as patients who were just babies before she left.

Christy's love for animals was undeniable at an early age. Thinking she was helping, she would round up the neighbourhood cats and try to convince her parents they were strays and needed a new home. It was then her parents realized it was time to add to the family, and brought home their first family cat, "Little Buddy", who was the very best cat ever.

Christy is mom to two children, as well as her fur babies, a golden retriever named "Banner" and her ginger cat, "Rohan". Her favorite time is spent with family and friends. When she has the time, she likes to relax by reading or binge watching her favorite show. Her therapy is spending time by the water or taking a walk through the woods or any time spent in nature.

Dear Clients,

We want to thank everyone for their patience in recent months. We have adhered, as strictly as we could, to the Public Health Directives throughout COVID and with this in mind, we are pleased to say that masks are no longer mandatory at our hospital. You may still see staff wearing masks when in close contact with clients. This is a purely personal choice. 

Our doors are now open and you are welcome to accompany your pets into the clinic for their appointments.

We require at least 48-72 hours for all medication refills as we are still experiencing delays with some items, but we will inform you of any backordered items.

We can still receive your food orders via phone or email, however, we now have an online store that you can access directly from the front page of our website. Please check out the free shipping and autoship discounts available.

Due to being short staffed at this time, we ask for your patience and kindness as we try to navigate through these busy times. We are doing the very best we can. If the phone is busy, please email or attempt to call again.


Monday to Friday: 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday: 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sunday: Closed

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
