Meet the friendly staff at Sabadilla Animal Clinic & Laser Centre
Dr. Robert Hagan was born in the northern community of Flin Flon Manitoba & after obtaining a BSc(Zoology) from the University of Manitoba he entered the Western College of Veterinary Medicine graduating in 1983. The first step in his veterinary career was working at the Northern Veterinary Clinic in The Pas & Flin Flon Manitoba. After 13 months of mixed animal practice Dr. Bob decided to move to Calgary to become a 100% small animal veterinarian & be much nearer the mountains.
The first year was spent as an emergency veterinarian in a large multiple clinic group followed by 5 years of locum veterinary services primarily in the Calgary area with a few side trips to northern Alberta & Manitoba. Dr. Bob purchased the Crowchild Trail Veterinary Clinic in the southwest Calgary community of Lakeview on April 1, 1989. He was the sole owner & veterinarian in the practice for over 28.5 years until the practice was sold in mid December 2017. Now in partial retirement Dr. Bob has returned to his previous career as a locum/relief veterinarian working at various small animal clinics in the general Calgary area. Currently Dr. Bob & his wife Beverly share their home with their 20th adopted pet Cleopatra. She is a middle aged cat adopted from one of his previous long term clients who had to move to a retirement care facility.
