DR. MANON FLYNN
In her childhood, it was remarkable that in the company of animals Manon completely forgot about the human presence. Towards adolescence her interest in science, biology and physiology became clear, medicine was where she would go.

Attached to her patients and clients, Dr Flynn is very fortunate to have found such a rewarding career from both a human and professional point of view and thanks heaven for guiding her on this path.

She uses and integrates her skills in acupuncture and osteopathy in her daily life to help her patients with great success. There is no greater satisfaction for her than being able to improve the condition of her patients and to see them melt with well-being under her hands!

DR. AMANDA COCKBURN
Like many children, Amanda was drawn to animals. Her parents knew that her career would be in this field when the house became a refuge for all the little critters (rabbits, rodents, birds) in distress that crossed her path and with whom she could have conversations for hours.
Her journey to medicine was long. She started with a BACC in biochemistry. It was during her master’s degree, while working on a thesis on the influence of estrogen on depression that she realized she was not on the right path. She then began her doctorate in veterinary medicine at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Saint-Hyacinthe. Since her graduation she has been practicing medicine for small animals and exotic species including birds, rodents, rabbits, ferrets and reptiles. She has strong knowledge in parasitology since in addition to her work as a clinician, she holds a part-time teaching position at the Saint-Hyacinthe Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in parasitology.
Her areas of interest are preventive and internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, and behavior. Her passion for her profession is driven by the valuation she derives from the help she provides to people in their desire to preserve and optimize the relationship they cherish with their pets. Her household keeps warm with her little boy, her 2 dogs and her 3 cats.
