Brittany Gaw, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician/Wildlife Custodian

I have always had a passion to help animals since I was young and have dreamt of working in the veterinary medicine field. I decided to go back to school and completed the 2-year Veterinary Technician program at Northern College in Haileybury, Ontario. I decided to continue my education and returned to Northern to take the Wildlife Rehabilitation advanced diploma program. I graduated in 2018 and am so excited to start my career here at Manitou Animal Hospital!


I joined Manitou Animal Hospital in May 2018. I love that every day is something new and you are always on your toes! My first pet was a black Labrador Retriever named Brigus. I love being able to help clients with their pets and make them feel comfortable and welcomed at our clinic. I always feel as though we are part of a big family here and I know I have a great support staff. I am a classical pianist and love to play and listen to music!
