Team Bio - Dr. Krista GavelDVM

Dr. Krista Gavel

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

I was born and raised in Antigonish NS, then attended the Nova Scotia Agricultural College in Truro NS, completing 3 years of a B.Sc in Agriculture with a major in Animal Science before being accepted to the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown PEI.

After graduating in May 2008, I moved to High River along with my 2 cats Fozzie and Otis to start working with Dr. Dave Dempsey at Highview Animal Clinic. One year later I acquired a rescued racing greyhound named Sadie.

In 2010 I met Joel and acquired a lab named Parker. We got married in 2012 and that same year we became part-owners at Highview Animal Clinic. In October 2014 we welcomed our first baby, a son named Lane and December of 2016 brought our second son, Frankie.

When not at work I enjoy playing volleyball, reading, camping, running, hiking, baking and making trips to NS to visit family and friends.
