Laura Hobbs

Senior Veterinary Assistant

Laura is a dedicated Veterinary Assistant that joined the Sackville Animal Hospital family in 2006, after graduating from the Veterinary Assistant course at Eastern College. Laura chose a career in the Veterinary Medicine field because of her strong love of helping pets and people alike.

Laura has many interests in Veterinary Medicine, but mostly her areas of interest are in creating a positive client/pet experience and working hard to support all areas of the clinic. You can often see Laura working in exam rooms with patients, assisting reception, supporting the Doctors, and helping the administrative team.

Outside of her clinic life, Laura is a devoted wife and a mother to two beautiful children. Her furry family consists of Murtagh, her 2 year Lab mix and two kitties, Huxley and Franny-Lou. At home Laura is passionate about growing vegetables in her garden, watercolor painting, baking, cooking, and crocheting.

We can’t deny Laura is passionate about pets, especially the ones that live in her home!

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!

 - Your dedicated team at Sackville Animal Hospital
