Dr. Valerie Millette
Dr. Millette is a small animal veterinarian and practice co-owner of Equi-Tech Veterinary with her husband Dr. Neil Versavel.
Dr. Val grew up in Calgary, Alberta. From an early age, she developed a keen interest in animals. She had a childhood obsession with gorillas, and was completely devoted to her childhood dog, Chili. In her teen and early adult years, Dr. Val worked in a variety of vet clinics and a pet store in Calgary. She began on her path to becoming a veterinarian by receiving a Bachelor of Science with a Major in Zoology from the University of Calgary in 2004. She achieved her ultimate dream of being accepted into veterinary school in 2005, and thus completed her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 2009, at the University of Saskatchewan’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine (classmates with Dr. Neil Versavel, and Dr. Allison Murray).
Dr. Val enjoys many aspects of veterinary medicine, especially geriatric medicine and pain management, dentistry, ophthalmology, and veterinary acupuncture. Most of all, she enjoys being a witness to and supporter of the human-animal bond. She displays care and compassion with her gentle and thoughtful approach to her patients and their families.
Dr. Val is also a mom to two amazing children, Melodie and Aiden. They keep her busy with their activities, stories, and general Joi de vivre!
As a family, they enjoy time spent together camping, tobogganing, skating, swimming, and visiting with friends and family.
Dr. Val also enjoys fitness, gardening, reading, music, and caring for her old-timer Sonny-Dog, and her cuddle-cat Dusty-Boots.
