Dr. Corine Léger
Dr. Corine Léger graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2012, with a General Bachelor of Science with Minors in Biology, which led her to pursue her dream career in veterinary medicine. Upon graduating with her DVM degree in 2018 from the University of Montreal, she started practicing both general practice and emergency medicine at the VCA Ottawa Veterinary Hospital. She developed a special interest in internal and emergency medicine, geriatric patient care and dermatology. She has a special place in her heart for misunderstood breeds and relinquished pets. Outside of work, Corine loves spending time with her husband, their two small children and cuddling with their 5 pets at home. She also enjoys exploring the outdoors and dancing with her kids. Corine joined the Arnprior Animal Hospital team in September 2022. Dr. Léger enjoys building relationships with pets and their families, and providing gold standard medical and surgical care.
Dr. Chris Appleby established the Arnprior Animal Hospital in 1981 following graduation from the Ontario Veterinary College. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, and has a special interest in surgery. Working with her daughter, Dr. Brianne Appleby has added a very special dimension to her career as they work together to share ideas about veterinary medicine and surgery. Dr. Appleby's younger daughter, Mikaela is also an important member of our hospital team and sharing management knowledge and ideas provides for interesting family conversations! She enjoys travelling, scuba diving, dragon boating, canoeing and spending time with family.
