Michael

Registered Veterinary Technologist
I’ve been working at Centennial since June 2010. I enjoyed attending Red River College to become an Animal Health Technologist and the opportunity to work with a variety of large and small animals. I grew up on a farm with a cow, horses, cats, dogs, sheep and pigs. I spent most of my youth with them and it was a childhood I wouldn’t trade for the world and one that prepared me well for my career as an Animal Health Technologist. Another benefit of my profession is playing a role in the stories that veterinarians strive to write happy endings to. I will never forget the first time that I assisted a vet in my hometown of St. Claude. We delivered puppies together, and that sense of satisfaction impacts my work every day. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling with my wife Candace. I also like to golf, fish, and spend time with friends. I have 3 pets at home.
  • Lily- 1.5 years old DSH
  • Betty White – 6 month old DSH
  • Meiko – 4 year old Husky X

How to help injured and orphaned wild animals

Below are a few suggestions should you come across injured or orphaned wildlife.  First, you need to determine if the wild animal is indeed injured or abandoned without putting yourself in harm’s way. Try not to have too much contact with the animal or to disturb the surroundings. If you are unsure, it is best that you leave it be and call a wildlife specialist to notify them about the animal and its location. Certain animals like rabbits and deer often leave their young alone for long periods throughout the day. If it appears healthy and well, do not disturb the animal.
