Doctors

Dr. Bill IgnacioVeterinary Hospital - Dr. Bill Ignacio

 

Dr. Ignacio grew up in Hawaii. (Yes, it was nice. No, he doesn't surf.) He graduated from Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in 2002. He has always enjoyed working with all types of animals, so he accepted an internship in Equine Medicine at The Okotoks Animal Clinic outside of Calgary, Alberta. But love for the ocean brought him out to the coast and Vancouver, which he now calls home. He misses the horses, but loves that he gets to practice high quality medicine and surgery in a well-staffed, progressive small animal hospital. His dream car is a 1969 Ford Thunderbird and he has an irrational fear of avocados.

Dr. Cynthia RoseDr. Cynthia Rose; newest Doctor at Granville Island Veterinary Hospital

Dr. Cynthia Rose completed both her undergraduate and veterinary studies at the University of Guelph. After a long drive across the country, she began her career in beautiful Vancouver. She has recently travelled to Nunavut and Botswana to provide veterinary care for underprivileged animals as a member of the Canadian Animal Assistance Team. Dr. Rose works closely with her clients, providing a fresh diagnostic and therapeutic approach, to help provide optimal care for her four-legged patients.

When she is not at the hospital, you can find Dr. Rose indoor rock climbing, riding her bicycle, or exploring the beautiful outdoors that the West Coast has to offer. 

Dr. Anna WallaceVeterinary Hospital - Dr. Anna Wallace

Born and raised here in Vancouver, Dr. Anna Wallace has found her way back to join us at Granville Island Veterinary Hospital. After graduating from McGill University with a degree in Biology, Anna wasted no time and headed straight to Saskatoon to attend the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Wallace brings to our team of doctors a fresh knowledge of veterinary medicine and an eager approach to surgery. Our clients are pleased with her pleasant and friendly attitude and our patients are quick to adopt Dr. Wallace as one of their favorite veterinarians. Madeline is a cute terrier that won Anna's heart during her care at Western College of Veterinary Medicine.

In her spare time Dr. Anna Wallace enjoys running, traveling, socializing and occasionally, getting lost on Grouse Mountain.
