Heather Rice

Lead Client Care Representative

FEAR FREE CERTIFIED / Certified Cat Friendly Advocate / Nutrition Advisor

Heather joined our team in 2017 after completing her Veterinary Assistant program. Having always loved animals she felt this was the perfect career to pursue. Heather loves being part of the Aldergrove Animal Crew and has taken up a special interest in the nutritional aspect of the veterinary world. She has completed numerous CE courses and earned her Nutrition Advisor Certification in February 2021. Heather is a strong believer in dietary education and wants to help our clients choose the best and most healthy diet for their pets. Heather runs our weight loss program for pets and is always happy to help another pet regain their healthy lifestyle by just trimming down a few pounds as this can make a huge difference in the life of the pet. 

Heather loves assisting and helping in all areas of the clinic but is passionate about making sure that when you walk into the hospital, you and your pet are treated like family. The relationship between the client and clinic are very important to Heather and she loves making sure everyone is happy when they leave the clinic with their pet. 

At home, Heather is the proud owner of two adorable Shih Tzu’s, Sara and Chloe and a gorgeous longhaired cat named Lily. She enjoys time at home with her family, gardening, watching movies, and going to the beach.
