When work and pleasure blend….life is good!

The West Boulevard Veterinary Clinic is fortunate to have an excellent human resources team to care for both the medical and business needs of the hospital. The structure of this team is based upon the well-being of pets that are entrusted to our care.

Our Team consists of four veterinarians…two full time and two part time, a Registered Animal Health Technician, a full time Veterinary Office Assistant, two part time VOA graduates and a dedicated group of part time student staff. In addition to our regular personnel, WBVC has access to the services of Board Certified Veterinary Specialists who come to our facility as required. WBVC also utilizes the services and expertise of the veterinarians at the Canada West Veterinary Specialist and Critical Care Group, and the Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic.

Dr.
Janne Potter

Dr. Janne Potter received an Honours B.Sc. and Diploma of Education from the University of British Columbia. Upon completion of these degrees she studied Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University, in Cambridge, England. In 1977 she graduated with a B.A./BVetMed and became a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.

Her areas of interest are equine and small animal medicine and surgery. Shortly after returning to Vancouver, a back injury resulting from a vehicle accident directed her practice focus to small animal medicine. However, her interests, and commitment to continuing education, continue to embrace both equine and small animal medicine and surgery. In 1998 Dr. Potter enrolled in, and completed, the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society’s post graduate program in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.*  Familiarity with both conventional and alternative veterinary medical modalities enables Dr. Potter to use an integrated approach to veterinary care, diagnosis and treatment.Happily married and a mother of four Dr. Potter is as busy at home as she is at work! Her home is a minor menagerie of dogs, cats, birds, fish, ponies and horses and her outside interests include a passion for horses, an enjoyment of sailing, kayaking, gardening and an appreciation of art.Her latest endeavour has been the development of a small apiary. Look for her local honey being available at WBVC!
