In Loving Memory

Therese Boctor

Therese Boctor was the cornerstone and co-founder of St.Catharines Animal Hospital alongside her husband Dr.Boctor. After battling Breast Cancer for 12 years, she sadly passed away in August of 2017. She was best described by Dr.Boctor as his inspiration, motivator, as well as his backbone. She showed her love for all patients that came into the clinic and had a calming effect on any room she entered. She will always be remembered and be greatly missed.
