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.
