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.
Stephen is our dedicated and caring Booking Manager who helps us to keep the office running smoothly. He has grown up with numerous dogs and horses and enjoys helping us care for your pets!
Taylor is our caring and helpful Veterinary Assistant/Receptionist. She previously worked as an animal care technician in animal shelters for the last 5 years helping animals in need of forever homes. She graduated from Guelph University in Ridgetown in 2019 for Vet Office Administration. She is a proud mom of a fluffy 8 year old rescue cat named Teddy. In her spare time she’s an avid gamer and movie enjoyer.
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.
