Dr. Meg Lainson, DVM

Dr. Meg Lainson originated from New York City and received her veterinary degree from Colorado State University. She did her post graduate work at the Denver and London Zoos, treating everything from rhinos and snow leopards to anacondas and scorpions.

She came to the San Juan Islands in Northern Washington State in the 1980's and established an all-species veterinary practice and Wolf Hollow Wildlife Centre. Her wildlife rehabilitation experience led her to assist animals caught in many oil spills from Washington to California, including the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska in 1989.

Dr. White met Dr. Meg in the 1980's and they became good friends. Dr. Meg worked at the Renton Veterinary Hospital for a year before she immigrated to Canada.

Dr. Meg Lainson, DVMDr. Lainson followed a long-term dream to relocate to Victoria where she has worked for the last 8 years. She was able to hone her skills in the large and small animal practice that also provided emergency care. While there she provided excellent care for a wide array of birds, amphibians, reptiles, goats, sheep, llama, alpaca, pigs and mini-horses. This is actually very unusual as most veterinarians see only a few species of animals. Now, she has returned to Washington to assist Dr. White with animals at Sawyer Lake Veterinary Hospital and South Sound Critter Care (wildlife).

Dr. Lainson is a professional singer and dancer and has performed in many theatre musicals including "West Side Story" and "The King and I". She also enjoys ultramarathoning, kayaking, globe-trekking, scuba, playing mbira (an African musical instrument) and acapella African singing. She has a weakness for fuzzy-faced dogs and is owned and managed by an australian terrier , an otterhound and a goffin cockatoo.
