Dr. Jane ChasowyD.V.M.
Dr. Jane grew up on a farm in the Niagara Region. Even though the family farm was a fruit farm, there were always plenty of animals around. Actually, Dr. Jane cannot remember the initial “spark” that led her to pursue a career working with animals, she just knows that she always wanted to be a Veterinarian.
After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1978 she began practising Veterinary medicine with Dr's Fred and Lynda Harris at the Harris Animal Hospital. She has worked here ever since – with Dr. Ivan Zivcic and now Dr. Esther and Dr. Rob.
She has now spent over 43 years at the Harris Animal Hospital and has come to know many wonderful people and their amazing pets. However – Dr. Jane has decided to retire from practising Veterinary Medicine and will be leaving at the end of 2021.
It will be sad saying good-bye to our wonderful clients and their pets, especially since she has been a part of multiple beloved family members – not only helping people say good-bye but also happily welcoming new puppies and kittens into their families.
Retiring – Dr. Jane will be able to spend more time with her daughter Katie and beloved grandson Avery, working around her home in Sweaburg and hopefully continuing her passion for travelling and seeing the world.
