She strives to provide each and every patient and client with a pleasant experience – one that surpasses expectations and lives up to the highest of standards.
When she is not diagnosing, treating, and caring for your furry friend, you can find her spending quality time with her husband and their two beautiful children.
Dr. Emilia Balc
Dr. Emilia Balc is a licensed veterinarian who first obtained her license in Romania in 1997. She worked as a partner in a veterinary clinic until 2006, when she immigrated to Canada with her family. Her love for animals began early in life, as she grew up with German Shepherds and later trained this breed. This experience helped to guide her career and allowed her to gain a deep understanding of animal behavior. Throughout her career, Dr. Balc has worked in a variety of veterinary clinics and emergency hospitals, and she has a strong commitment to serving animals. In recent years, she has expanded her knowledge to include acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathy, and herbology in order to take a more holistic approach to animal care. She has a particular interest in using these modalities to extend the lives of her patients and help senior patients feel more comfortable and free of pain. When she is not at the clinic, Dr. Balc can often be found hiking, cycling, walking or spending time with her family and pets. Currently, Dr. Balc has four pets of her own - a pomchi, two cats, and a canary.
Hi! My name is Veronica, and I am a student currently attending Olds College to finish my registered veterinary technician program.

I am excited to say that I have recently joined the Silverado Vet team and will continue my practicum under the wonderful owner, Dr. K.D.
Hello! I'm Erica, and my love of animals is leading me down this wonderful path in the veterinary industry. I went to Olds College to study in the Vet Tech Assistant program and graduated in December 2021. To expand my skills, I am aiming to be a Registered Veterinary Technician. Eventually, I would like to use my knowledge and experience to help animals both locally and abroad. Currently, I am volunteering for BARCS to help dogs find their forever homes.
