Emergency Veterinary Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day

Erin Mulligan

Veterinary Technician
Erin's love of animals started at a very young age, as she grew up on a busy dairy farm in New Zealand. She qualified as a veterinary technician in 2006 and worked in New Zealand for several years before making the move to Vancouver Island. Erin loves working in a busy emergency clinic, particularly on the medical cases that we see, and she finds caring for the patients the most rewarding part. When she's not at work, she is spending time with her family and their dog, Marcie. She loves hiking, camping, and impromptu adventures with friends.
