While Dr. Heidi Clouse grew up in Alberta, after moving to beautiful Vancouver Island in 2018 she hasn’t looked back. Dr. Heidi first loaned her expertise to the Elk Lake team as a regular locum, and is thrilled to now be helping her patients as one of our Associate Veterinarians. While she enjoys many aspects of general veterinary practice, Dr. Heidi has a special interest in soft tissue surgery and dentistry. In her ongoing quest to achieve ‘crazy cat lady’ status, her day is brightened by every feline patient she meets.
When she isn’t spending her time in the consult rooms or surgical suites of ELVH, Dr. Heidi is still kept plenty busy caring for critters. She shares her home with her fiance and… wait for it… 10 four-legged family members! Dr. Heidi is currently owned by three chihuahua mix doggos and seven kitties, many of whom have special needs and benefit from her dedicated TLC. Not limiting her interests to animals, Dr. Heidi also makes time for weight training and hiking, and enjoys the occasional IPA when she has the chance!
