Dr. Jennifer Hopper
Dr. Jen graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College with Honours in 1999 and moved to London shortly after. She worked at both an emergency clinic and regular care hospital before purchasing her own clinic in 2001. She opened London North Animal Hospital in 2012 and loves seeing all of her furry patients. Dr. Jen has been involved with and supports many charities over the years including Sea Shepherd, World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, and the Jane Goodall Institute. She has 5 fur babies, a feisty chihuahua named Stella, a goofy husky named Apollo, and three elegant and sophisticated cats, “the sophisticats” named Faraday, Ahzure, and Axis. In her spare time, she enjoys camping, traveling, and hiking with her husband.
Nathan is one of our wonderful devoted technicians. He has worked with Dr. Hopper for 22 years and still enjoys caring for all of our patients. He grew up in England and moved to Canada when he was young and always dreamed of a career caring for animals. He has a wacky fun sense of humour and always keeps everyone in great spirits at work! In his spare time, he enjoys disc golf, biking, traveling, and playing hockey.
Registered Veterinary Technician
Heather graduated from Ridgetown College for veterinary technology in 2018 and started working at London North Animal Hospital right after graduation. She is a total “animal person” who is planning on becoming a veterinarian herself one day. Her kind heart and patience are so appreciated in the hospital and she is loved by all. She is the proud mama of Orion, a bouncy Australian Shepherd. Heather enjoys reading, gardening, and hiking when she is not at work.
Veterinary Technician Apprentices
Brooke is originally from Orillia and spent a year in New Zealand before moving to London in September of 2018. Brooke is currently being trained as a Veterinary Technician apprentice. She has two crazy pups at home, a five year old golden retriever named Mason and a bouncy one and a half year old German Shepherd named Maui. Brooke enjoys playing hockey, golfing and hiking with her two dogs in tow.
Montana grew up in Chatham and spent the past seven years living in Toronto before moving to London in September of 2021. While living in Toronto, Montana attended George Brown College for Baking and Pastry Arts but has been working in the Veterinary industry for the past two years with aspirations of becoming a Veterinary Technician. She has one crazy cat at home named Gigi. When not at work, Montana enjoys watching horror movies, sewing and baking.
Stella is our other office manager who likes to run a clean and orderly office. She ensures that no large dog “gets out of line” on her watch and will let you know if this occurs (of course from a safe spot where she won’t be challenged). When she is not working she enjoys long naps on the couch and liver treats.
Apollo is currently in training for a management position and hopes to be promoted soon. He is still working on his “instant gratification” skills but loves to meet all the clients who come to the door and can’t wait until we can have our wonderful pet owners inside the hospital where he can make their acquaintance. In his spare time, he enjoys chewing paper, chasing cats and squirrels, and watching T.V.
Stephen is our hospital manager who helps keep everything organized for us. He grew up in Rochester New York and always knew he would end up working with pets as he has had numerous dogs, cats, and horses in his life.
