Dr. Alyssa Lima

Dr. Alyssa Lima is thrilled to be part of the Beattie Animal Hospital team since her graduation from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2014.  Prior to attending vet school, she completed an honors undergraduate degree at the University of Guelph majoring in Biomedical Science with a minor in Molecular Biology and Genetics.
Since she was a little girl growing up on her family cattle farm, Dr. Lima has always had a strong passion for working with animals great and small! Her experience working with cows, horses, birds, cats and dogs, have made her very comfortable working with any animal.  During her time in vet school Dr Lima participated in dog shows for agility and obedience training during the University of Guelph’s annual College Royal dog show.  She remains active within the Ontario Veterinary College community as an alumni in mentoring future veterinary students and speaking to various high schools about the journey to becoming a veterinarian.
One of the best parts of being a veterinarian is the diversity within the profession. Dr. Lima has a strong interest in ophthalmology, surgery/dentistry , geriatric patient care and behavior training. Although she loves all animals , she has a special fondness for Australian Shepherds
Currently Dr. Lima owns a cheeky Netherland Dwarf rabbit named “Roo” who is an entertaining and loveable little friend. Unfortunately Dr. Lima had to say goodbye to her beloved best friend ‘Sasha- Mouse”, a 13 year old Australian Shepherd who suffered from liver cancer but was an exceptional doggie who provided many years of love and wonderful memories. If given the chance in appointments, she will tell you all about her faithful doggie and how much she was loved!
When she is not working, Dr. Lima enjoys horseback riding, salsa dancing and being proficient in various languages ( Portuguese and Spanish)
Dr. Lima loves seeing all of the furry faces that come to Beatties — whether they are wiggly bum puppies and kittens or sweet senior pets who are beloved family members!
