Dr. Allyson Finley was born and raised in Grand Bay-Westfield, New Brunswick. From a young age, she always had a dog by her side and jokingly says she was raised by Golden Retrievers. In 2013, she achieved her dream of becoming a veterinarian by graduating from the Atlantic Veterinary College. From there she worked in a clinic in Ontario, before coming back to her home province, and settling in Hanwell. She has a keen interest in palliative care, pain management, ultrasonography, and will be the first to tell you, her favorite kind of appointments are those involving senior pets.
Allyson lives with her husband on a hobby farm where they have four dogs, Millie, Junie Mae, Fiddich and Tugboat, as well as two horses, seven ducks and seven chickens. There is never a dull moment at her farm, which often leads to stories of many crazy antics. Dr. Finley has a love for long distance running, triathlons, true crime podcasts and reading an endless amount of books. She continues to be raised by Golden Retrievers (and now Labrador Retrievers too!) as pictured below with one of her dogs, Fiddich.
