Kathy Cavanagh

Mississippi Veterinary Services’ veteran technician, Kathy has been on the team since March of 1986 when she started as a student receptionist/tech only to return in May 1988 as a graduated Animal Health Technician. While away at school she gained valuable experience at an emergency veterinary clinic in Toronto while studying in the Animal Health Technician (AHT) program at Seneca College.  Over the years Kathy has served on the board of the Ottawa Chapter of the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians (OAVT) and the Central Canada Veterinary Association (CCVA) as the Tech Representative.
Kathy particularly enjoys the ‘repro’ type work with her job and the laboratory work that we can offer in our in-clinic lab.
Kathy and her family share their home with “Ruby” a yellow Lab.  When not at work Kathy devotes her time to farming and working at building their herd of Registered Angus cattle.  She also raises various breeds of chickens and Coturnix quail. Some of her favourite activities include pottery, kayaking, hiking, camping, reading, and spending time with her family (especially her 2 grandchildren).
