Dr Andréa Lalumière-Moreau

DR SONIA CAMIRÉ
“In my travels, I have discovered the secrets of therapeutic approaches such as the Bowen and the Niromathé.”
Having grown up in the small city of Black Lake, Dr. Camiré has come a long way since the beginning of her practice! In 2005, she graduated from Université de Montréal, where a beautiful adventure began.
After five years of practice in a hospital in Quebec City, she realized that modern medicine had its limits. Her cat Elliot made her discover the benefits of massages, since no drug seemed to relieve him from his chronic pain due to declawing.
Already, Dr. Camiré wanted to do more than prescribe pills or give injections. She wished to help animals with her hands and her love.
In 2010, our favourite adventurer left with her backpack to discover Oceania for a year. It is during her stay in Australia that she discovered the Bowen technique. For her, this discovery opened a door to the countless possibilities complementary therapies offer.
As soon as she came back from travelling, she took a Bowen class for humans in Montréal (AIMTC) over a two-year period. She then went back to Australia to perfect her technique on animals.
Dr. Camiré then took a long layover in France in order to take a Niromathé technique class and begin a veterinary osteopathy class in Paris (IMAOV).
After two years, she finally came back to Québec to finish her osteopath training and begin an acupuncturist training (IMAOV).
Dr. Camiré says that at the end of a treatment, when she sees this glow, this thankful flame in the eyes of the animal, she realizes that she has the best job in the world. Come discover her passion for complementary medicine!

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!
