Dr. Susan Andrus

Veterinarian
Dr. Susan grew up in Beaconsfield, England, then moved to Toronto in 1979. She wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 8 years old, and spent her early school years rescuing worms caught out in the rain at recess. She graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1999 and after working in various hospitals in Barrie, Oakville and Newmarket, and opened the Wasaga Beach Veterinary Clinic in October 2006. She and her staff also ran a cat rescue for ten years, and rescued over 4000 cats in ten years! The practice grew over the next 12 years and was sold in 2018. She joined the Tantallon Vet team in 2019, and she now lives with her husband Paul in Glen Haven with their four cats Kato, Josh, Tilly and Francis Bean. She and Paul can also be found at the barn with their two mules, Dove and Ruthy. Dr. Susan enjoys all aspects of small animal medicine, but her special interest is ensuring all her patients live pain-free healthy lives from kitten/puppy to old age. She also tries to educate owners so they can be proactive in their pet's health. Interests outside her career include trail riding, reading, writing, and enjoying the ocean and the outdoors. She and her husband divide their time between Nova Scotia and Eleuthera, where they have a home in Spanish Wells.
