Dr. Jessica O’Keefe, DVM

Veterinarian

Originally from Halifax, I have been living all over the Maritimes. I recently moved to Dartmouth from Sydney Cape Breton. I’ve always loved animals, and after reading all of James Herriot’s books as a child decided to be a vet! I attended UPEI for my bachelor of Science degree before attending the Atlantic Veterinary College. I graduated in 2011.

I have a special interest in feline medicine and ultrasound. I also love the variety and challenges that come with the role and having hands-on experience from start to finish on a case. In this field, there is always an opportunity to learn new things!

In my spare time, I enjoy quilting and embroidery. I also love nature and hiking.

Please note that it will take at least 24 hours for all prescription and food items to be ready for pick up (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".

Unfortunately, our bathroom is still closed to the public as it is in our radiology room.
