Meet Our Dr. Michelle van Lienden
Dr. Michelle van Lienden
Dr. van Lienden grew up in the Netherlands. After graduating in 2001, she moved to England and worked for over 10 years as a small animal veterinarian in several busy 24 hour hospitals. Dr. van Lienden is part of the emergency team of Clarkson Village Animal Hospital. She is a very experienced surgeon, and is able to perform a variety of orthopedic and soft-tissue procedures.
She has a wonderful daughter, Sophie, who she loves spending time with when she’s not at the clinic.
Dr. van Lienden has recently been appointed as the veterinarian of the ‘Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides’. This wonderful charity organization provides Dog Guides to Canadians with physical or mental disabilities, at no cost. Click here to find out more or to make a donation.
“Because Clarkson Village Animal Hospital is a 24 hour hospital, there is always a veterinarian and qualified technician on-site. This enables us to provide ’round the clock care’ for our hospitalized patients. We are here for your pet when he or she needs us the most. Being able to see critically ill pets recover, thanks to the combined efforts of our dedicated and caring hospital team is one of the most rewarding aspects of my career’.
