To our referring partner veterinarians, my commitment is to provide support to you and your clients, ensuring that both you and they are fully informed, and to that end, to be available to dis-cuss any questions and concerns that you might have, and to keep you involved in our mutual patients’ care.
To pet owners, my commitment is to provide you with all of the information that you need to make an informed decision regarding your pet’s care; to support you in making the best decision possible in your circumstances, without judgment; and to be there to continue to provide support throughout the journey.
Dr. Elliot was born and raised in Vancouver, BC., although she has lived for periods of time in various parts of the country, as well as in the UK. After becoming board-certified in oncology in 2013, she wanted to return to the West Coast, and set up a successful oncology practice in Victoria, BC, but after six years there realized that she needed change from the large corporate structure within which she was working. She then locumed at BBVSH among other places, including a wonderful experience providing temporary coverage at the veterinary school at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Upon her return to Canada she was thrilled to re-join the team at BBVSH, where she loves working in an independently-owned hospital that has such a strong focus on providing patients and clients with the best possible care, in a cooperative and supportive working environment.
Dr. Elliot strongly values the human-animal bond, and has found oncology to be a subset of veterinary medicine that allows her to support this bond and give a high degree of personalized care to her patients and clients. In addition to providing high-level care to her patients, she believes that one of the most important aspects of veterinary oncology is supporting clients in making an in-formed decision when choosing how to treat their beloved pet’s cancer, ensuring that they are aware of all the options, and understanding that every situation is unique, and that each family’s goals may differ.
Outside of work, Dr. Elliot is kept busy with her two young children. At the moment, her family is without any four-legged members, having recently lost their dog to lymphoma; they are waiting for the right puppy or kitten to come along and join the family. Her interests include hiking and mountain biking with her family, soccer, cooking, and reading (with a weakness for historical fiction).
