Dr. Natalie Scorgie
Dr. Scorgie graduated with honours from the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) in 2018. Originally enrolled in the nursing program at the University of Toronto, Dr. Scorgie switched career paths after witnessing the benefits of animal-assisted therapy for patients at Sick Kids Hospital. She developed a deep appreciation for the human-animal bond during that time and became inspired to pursue veterinary medicine.
While in vet school, Dr. Scorgie worked as a summer student at the OVC Animal Cancer Centre. She was also a research assistant at the Institute for Comparative Cancer Investigation, which strives to advance the understanding of human cancers through research in companion animal cancer patients.
Dr. Scorgie represented fellow veterinary students on the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association Board of Directors from 2015 to 2017 and was recognized by the International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society for her proficiency in emergency and critical care upon graduation from veterinary school. Dr. Scorgie has a special interest in ophthalmology, oncology, surgery, dentistry and pain management. She loves working with clients to ensure the best quality of life for their pets.
When not at work, she enjoys eating anything vegan and spending time with her husband, son and French bulldog
