DOCTORS

Dr. Louise Langlais, DVM

Hi! I’m so looking forward to meeting you! I’m one of the veterinarians who will look after your pet, and the medical director of Hespeler Animal Hospital.

I’ve wanted to be a vet for as long as I can remember. I graduated from the University of Guelph in 1986 with my degree in veterinary medicine, and I also have a post-graduate degree in Clinical Pathology. That means I can read fine needle biopsies in-house, rather than having to send them to an outside lab. Our clients love that, because they don’t have to wait as long to get an answer about that scary lump, or about what’s causing the infection in their dog’s ear!

I chose to become a veterinarian because I like meeting people, love working with animals, and wanted the challenge that a career in medicine can offer. I think it’s great that every day is different. I’ve worked at several vet clinics in Brantford, St. Catharines, and at two emergency clinics in the Toronto area.

I enjoy teaching, so I also mentor students interested in applying to the veterinary program.

I own and have been at Hespeler Animal Hospital since it opened in 1989. My hobbies include cycling, hiking, backpacking, reading, skiing, paddling, and computers. I have two adult children, a wonderful spouse John, and our cats Stitch and Tino.

Dr. Amy Rojman, DVM

Dr. Amy Rojman completed her Bachelor of Science with Honours in Zoology at the University of Guelph in 2008, and went on to graduate from the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at the Ontario Veterinary College in 2017.  Amy spent the few years before her veterinary education working many interesting full and part time jobs including a reptile zoo educator, an elementary school presenter for Scientists in School, and even an airbrush tattoo artist at children’s parties!  During veterinary school Amy and her husband Yair, an equine veterinarian, opened a small family mobile equine practice and Amy has been the practice manager of this successful operation since its inception in 2015. Since graduating veterinary school Amy has worked in small animal hospitals in Hamilton, Cambridge, Kitchener and Guelph. In Amy’s free time you will likely find her in the kitchen trying out a daring new recipe (likely of the savoury variety) while her mischievous kitten Unagi climbs up her leg, in her garden tending to her flowers and delicious home-grown veggies or out exploring the beautiful estuaries, lakes and landscapes that surround her beloved hometown of Guelph.

Shayla Staff Pic

Shayla a wonderful addition to the Hespeler Animal Hospital family; her arrival to the team has been quite serendipitous. You can usually find her at reception, working incredibly hard or cuddling pets that are here visiting for the day. When she’s not kissing snouts and scratching bellies, Shayla enjoys spending time with her young daughter and other family, listening to music and DIY projects. She graduated from Conestoga College as a Social Service Worker, but has taken a break from caring for humans in order to help with the care of their beloved pets..
