“My office is a botanic garden, just like my medicine.”
Born in Sherbrooke, Dr. Myriam Audet obtained her veterinary medicine diploma in 1998 from Ross University School of Medicine, St. Kitts, in the Caribbeans. She has completed her university career at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana.
In 1999, she has continued her studies with a one-year residency in medicine and general surgery at Animal Medical Center in Manhattan, New York, city where she has then worked until 2003.
Dr. Audet moved back to Québec in 2003 and joined the Clinique vétérinaire du Vieux Village team in Sherbrooke.
In 2005, she completed a training in veterinary acupuncture. Five years later, she completed one in phytotherapy.
She became the owner of the Clinic (now Hospital) in November 2013.
Dr. Audet is also an active member of the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society and sits on the board of both the Association canadienne des vétérinaires acupuncteurs (AVAC) and the Association des médecines alternatives et complémentaires (AVMAC). She is committed to those modalities as well as complementary medicine!
Her family is made up of her partner, Stéphane; her sons, Eloi and Ulysse and her two grey cats, Steve and Simone.
Dr. Andréa Lalumière-Moreau
“My recipe for happiness: A smile and a kitten that purrs down my neck.”
Born in Granby, Dr. Lalumière-Moreau grew up in a universe of animals and veterinary medicine. Just like her father, her profession is a passion!
She graduated from the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire in 2011. From then, she has developed expertise and refined her skills at Clinique vétérinaire de Sherbrooke.
She joined the Clinique vétérinaire du Vieux Village team in 2013.
With her strong interest in ophtalmology and emergency medicine, as well as her dynamic and kind-hearted attitude, Dr. Lalumière-Moreau will passionately make you discover the world of animal health.
Outside of work, she is an outdoors, biking and cross-country skiing enthusiast. She owns an adorable kitty, Stella, who was adopted at the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire’s shelter.
DR. MARIE-SOLEIL ROY
“Taking care of nature and animals is also taking care of ourselves.”
Mindful of the well-being of both nature and animals, Dr. Marie-Soleil Roy completed a bachelor’s degree in environment before taking the plunge and pursuing her greatest passion, that she shares with her father: veterinary medicine.
It is with great dedication that she takes care of your precious life companions. Thoroughly and gently, she will take the time to inform you and support you through all steps of their lives.
Minoune, found at the SPCA and Maisie, a greyhound retired from racing, have long shared her life. Soon, another racing greyhound, a breed that she particularly loves, will be added to the family!
DR. ANNE FERLAND
“Every day is an opportunity to laugh, discover, love… and pet dogs!”
At 5 years old, Dr. Anne Ferland told her mom she would one day become a veterinarian. This passion has never left her since. She has recently realized that childhood dream by graduating from the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire at Université de Montréal in 2017.
Working as a student at Hôpital Vétérinaire Vieux Village in the summer of 2015, Dr. Ferland instantly appreciated the family atmosphere between the team members and with the clients. Deciding to come work here after her studies was an obvious choice for her.
Born in Racine, Dr. Ferland grew up in the countryside in Stanstead, surrounded with nature and her pets, who were always family. Without surprise, she treats her pets as if they were her own children: Goliath the chihuahua teckel, eternal teenager, and Merlin, the elder feline member of the family.
Besides her love for animals, Dr. Ferland loves the outdoors and camping. Her love for hiking has actually recently led her to Yukon, where she has long hesitated to stay and take on the Dawson City veterinary clinic with three of her veterinarian friends… One has to dream!
DR. LAURENCE BOURQUE
“Every animal I meet allows me to grow.”
Born in Rouyn-Noranda but growing up in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Dr. Laurence Bourque decided from a very young age that she would work with animals. This dream of hers came true in May of 2019 when she graduated from the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire of the Université de Montréal.
When she was a teenager, her interest in veterinary medicine inspired her to volunteer at the S.P.C.A. de la Montérégie.
As a horse lover, she worked during two summers for the equine hospital of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vétérinaire and took two mixed practice medicine internships in a few clinics.
Her interest for alternative medicine, the importance for her to work in a fun and dynamic team as well as her love for the Eastern Townships (where several members of her family live) all made her choose to join the Hôpital Vétérinaire Vieux Village.
Laurence will take care of your pets just like she takes care of her four Rex Cornish cats Mao, Mia, Isadora and Desmond: with dedication and compassion.
