Julie Vanbuskirk

Registered Veterinary Technician
Ever since I can remember, I have always had a passion for animals and their well-being. I've rescued many cats and kittens myself, some of which I have kept as my own fur-babies. Working in the veterinary field has allowed me to have a rewarding career, knowing that I am able to help animals every day (and I get to enjoy the puppy kisses too!). I graduated from Oulton College in 2013 and I love that it has made me into the RVT that I am today. I joined the VetCare team in April of 2018. I am most interested in laboratory procedures and analysis under the microscope. What I love the most about my job is that I get to work with such a wonderful team that feels like family and that I can help pets achieve happy and healthy lives. A fun fact about me is that I also make personalized bandanas for cats and dogs and I do horseback riding in my spare time.
Best vet in Riverview! I will only take my cat and any future pets here! They really know their stuff!!


The staff is very kind and caring towards animals and the owners :)
