Crystal Haid


Education: University of Guelph-Ridgetown Campus

Crystal started volunteering at a young age as a dog walker for neighbours and as a co-op student at Parkdale Animal Hospital in Waterloo. Along with caring for her own pets growing up, these experiences left no doubt in her mind that she wanted to pursue a career working with animals. Crystal has a thorough background in animal care and veterinary services. 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, dogs Tanner and Steve and 2 cats Handsome and Baby. Crystal enjoys spending time with her furry children, family, and friends. She also loves camping and reading.
