Dr. Trisha Mackie DVM
Ever since Trisha was a young girl, she wanted to help animals. Over the years, Trisha's love for animals only grew, as did her passion for science and problem solving - a combination that made becoming a veterinarian her eventual, and inevitable, calling. After completing a degree at home in Ottawa, Trisha achieved her veterinary degree from the Ontario Veterinary College. She took to the road and started practicing in both emergency and general practices, first in Ottawa and then on the Island. These diverse experiences helped Trisha nail down her true passions in the field, namely emergency medicine, soft tissue surgery, ultrasonography and internal medicine, and truly connecting with and helping others. Taking these passions and integrating them into her position as associate vet at CIVEH was a breeze. Practicing at our hospital has repeatedly proven to be a great fit for Trisha! Outside of work, Trisha enjoys travelling, with a special interest in exploring this incredible island, as well as reading, hiking, and generally vegging out with her partner, Tim, and their two little dogs, Willard and Georgie.
