Dr Annie Séguin, DMV
Dr Annie Séguin grew up in a small village south of Montreal. For as long as she remembers she always wanted to become a veterinarian. She achieved her dream and graduated from University of Montreal in 2001.
She practiced 3 years in Virginia (USA) for a general practice as a small animal veterinarian then moved to Ottawa in 2004 where she continued to obtain valuable experiences in various hospitals in the Capital region. Dr Vincelette and Dr Seguin then decided to open The Hamlet Veterinary Hospital in January 2017 to be able to practice the quality of care they would like for their own pets. Their goal was to open a family-friendly hospital when the whole team takes the time to focus on each pet’s needs.
Dr. Seguin is dedicated on educating owners about the care of their furry friends and treat various illnesses. She always provides compassionate care and loves to get to know the whole family. She is interested in all aspects of medicine but holds a special place in her heart for aging cats and dogs.
