Dr. Shannon Lee


Dr. Lee is the current owner of Scott Veterinary Clinic. She is excited to have joined the team here at Scott Veterinary Clinic in 2014 and looks forward to meeting all of our wonderful patients and their families.

Dr. Lee graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2004 and subsequently decided to pursue additional training in working with exotic animals-her passion. She completed a 1 year internship in avian and exotic medicine and surgery at the Ontario Veterinary College before moving onto general practice. You may have met Dr. Lee at any number of veterinary clinics in the Hamilton/Brantford area as she spent several years working as a relief veterinarian and operating her own mobile service.

While not at work, Dr.Lee and her husband Matt, keep busy running after their 11 year old daughter Brooklyn and their 6 year old old twins; Aubrey and Colten. They share their home with a bouncy mastiff cross named Max and a turtle named Franklin. In their spare time, Dr. Lee and her family enjoy gardening and camping.

Clinic Cat

When Zeta first arrived at Scott Veterinary Clinic she was somewhat feral and no one could get near her. Now she’s very friendly and frequently found lounging on the counter or chairs in the reception area. Don’t let her fool you-she’s very busy as Assistant Practice Manager. She keeps tabs on everyone in every department. Keep up the good work, Zeta!
