Meet Dr. Ahokas
With Dr. Cohen reducing his hours at the hospital, Dr. Amanda Ahokas is now the Medical Director.
Dr. Amanda grew up in Coleman, Alberta. She graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. After practicing in Fort McMurray, Nanaimo and Parksville she finally settled in Greater Victoria with her husband in 2011.
Dr. Amanda has 15 years of experience. She is passionate about pet dental care and believes every animal deserves to have a pain-free mouth. She also enjoys educating clients about wellness and preventative care. When she is not at the hospital she is at her other full-time job as Mom to her two kids.
The Ahokas family currently shares their home with a cat named Kiss (pronounced Kee-sah) which means cat in Finnish and a black Labrador named Willow. Dr. Amanda has always loved dog sports and is actively competing in AAC agility with Willow.
