Dr. Grant Cumberbirch and his wife Armida opened Amherst Veterinary Hospital in 1987, several years after Grant returned from veterinary school in Saskatoon. They built their business over time, ensuring that staff hires were carefully considered and building a brand they could be proud of. “Bricks and mortar can be bought,” says Grant, “the business is the people you put in it.” That dedication to choosing the right employees has paid off and is highlighted daily in the routine operation of the hospital. “All of our staff share an empathy and a passion for animals, regardless of what position they have,” says Grant.

Supportive, knowledgeable, kind
I cannot say enough good about Amherst. The staff is incredibly kind and highly professional. Our little dog, Casey, received the most gentle treatment and plenty of treats. When she became sick with mitral valve disease, Dr. Wark was always available and diligently cared for her. Casey did die, but, we are so thankful that her last months were filled with love. Amherst was a great support and continues to be as we nurse our 18 year old cat, Tiger, through her golden years. Dr. Yuen is making sure that Tiger enjoys every one of her nine lives. There have been several times where my heart was broken and I thought it was the end, but, through highly capable diagnosis, we still have our little girl. I can call anytime and come dashing in a minute before closing and I am always greeted by the kindest front end staff I could ever hope for. Amherst has been a part of our family for so many years and I could not be more grateful for the journey we have been privileged to share with this top-rate veterinary clinic.
