Olivia was born and raised in a rural portion of SD&G, between the towns of Lunenburg and St. Andrew’s West, Ontario. With a lifetime passion and love for animals, she went on to pursue an education and extensive training in the field of animal health to better help the lives of our beloved pets. She graduated with honours from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Biology and from the University of Guelph with a Diploma in Equine Studies.

Additionally, she has acquired certifications in Canine Hydrotherapy, Canine and Equine Kinesiology Taping, Canine First Aid, as a Level 1 CAMAdvocate (Canine Arthritis Management), and Equine First Aid Instructor. She continues to further her education by staying up to date with current and new research regarding animal health, physiology, genetics, nutrition, rehab strategies, physical training, and therapy methods.

Top Dog came to be after one of Olivia’s own dogs ruptured a CCL (cranial cruciate ligament) and her veterinarian described the limited resources and services in the area to aid in canine recovery. She subsequently decided to open her own canine conditioning and rehabilitation facility so that other dogs in the area had the opportunity to speed up their healing, decrease their pain, improve mobility, enhance their fitness, and live happier, healthier lives. In the spring of 2020, the doors to the Top Dog center were officially opened!

Outside of work, Olivia loves to spend time with her own dogs and horses and works diligently towards completing her clinical studies and training in animal osteopathy.
