Dr. Shannon Lee

Veterinarian/Owner

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.

Dr. Lee looks forward to meeting you and your family!

Dr. Lorna Mantle

Veterinarian

Dr. Mantle has been working at Scott Veterinary Clinic since 1984.

She was raised in a small town in Quebec, where she became an avid equestrian competitor, owning and showing horses in various disciplines of the horse industry. As a natural progression of her equestrian passions, she developed an early interest in veterinary medicine. She completed a year of post-secondary education at Concordia University in Montreal prior to transferring to the University of Guelph. She graduated with a BSc in Agriculture from the Ontario Agricultural College in 1977, and then continued on to obtain her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1981. She has been working in private practice since graduation.

She shares her home with her husband, two children, multiple cats, several horses and a flock of heritage chickens. Her personal interests include gardening, equestrian pursuits, breeding heritage chickens, and travel. She is a keen orchid grower, and is the past secretary of the Orchid Society of the Royal Botanical Gardens.

Dr. Tammy Hunter

Veterinarian

Dr. Hunter graduated in 2000 from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph. Following graduation, she worked as an associate veterinarian in Trenton, Pickering and Milton, before owning her own clinic in Guelph for 14 years.

Dr. Hunter has a passion for feline medicine, surgery and behaviour. Owning a grey tabby named Annie who was always very anxious during hospital visits, inspired Dr. Hunter to nurture a “cat friendly” environment for her feline patients. Dr. Hunter is a member of the American Association of Feline Practitioners which is committed to help practitioners improve the health and welfare of cats.

When she is not caring for patients, Dr. Hunter enjoys an active lifestyle which includes triathlons, travelling, scuba diving, and enjoying the outdoors. Dr. Hunter shares her home with her Australian Cattle Dog cross Benita, her Great Dane cross Luke, her kitty Nibs and her rabbit Mr. Boo.

She graduated with distinction in both the Animal Care program at Sheridan College (2006) and the Veterinary Technology program at the University of Guelph, Ridgetown Campus (2010). Eager to continue pursuing her passion, she went on to ascertain positions in a shelter, clinical settings, and insurance-related pet care. Crystal assists with lab work, surgery, caring for patients, and reception. She now resides in Guelph with her husband Dave, their cat, Baby and their 2 dogs, Tanner and Steve.

Zeta

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!
