Dr. Marie Ramoutar
Dr. Marie Ramoutar graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2009. Since then she has practiced in Ottawa in both general practice and emergency medicine. Dr. Ramoutar loves meeting clients and developing an open, trusting relationship with them to form the best pet health team. She firmly believes that the pet owner should be just as involved in deciding what is best for their pet as the pet health professionals. Dr. Ramoutar also has a keen interest in pet nutrition and tries to keep abreast of the ever-changing pet food industry. Medically, Dr. Ramoutar enjoys challenging surgical cases and dental surgery.
When not in the clinic, Dr. Ramoutar enjoys spending time at home with her husband and three sons. Together they have three dogs and two cats. Although, they have been known to take in rescues quite regularly. At one time, they had three dogs, two cats, a rabbit and a snake all under their roof.
Sophie has been the familiar face at the St. Laurent Animal Hospital since 2010. Previously working in pet stores, Sophie felt that she wanted to do more for animals leading her to complete the Veterinary Technician program at Algonquin College. When you come to the hospital, you may see Sophie performing different roles: greeter, receptionist, restrained, phlebotomist, anesthesiologist, educator and much more.
Sophie loves all kinds of animals but her weakness is geriatric cats. She could talk at length about how to manage hyperthyroidism. She shares one cat at home with her boyfriend. Guillaume is a spoiled geriatric domestic shorthair, which is a poster child for hyperthyroidism. When not at work, Sophie enjoys spending time with her boyfriend watching movies, painting and creating new memories.

During her spare time you can find Shelby hanging out with her friends, spending time at the cottage, or training her dog Tulsa in various sports including Schutzhund, obedience & dock diving!
