Chances are, when you walk into Sunrise you and your pets will be greeted with a friendly welcome (and maybe a treat or two) from Laurie! She is exceptional at making our Sunrise family feel “at home” as soon as they come through our doors. We genuinely care about our owners as well as our pets, and Laurie exemplifies this daily – she goes above and beyond to make sure our clients receive the best care possible.
Dr. Stacey was born and raised in Toronto, and developed a real love for the outdoors in high school with the canoe club. He was very interested in wildlife in his early university studies, and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1991. Shortly after, he moved to Comox, BC with his wife Dr. Whelan. In 2010 he relocated Sunrise Veterinary Clinic to Comox to its current location on the corner of Guthrie Rd. and Shamrock Pl. in what was the old Coast Realty building. He continues to volunteer his medicine and surgery expertise at the MARS wild bird centre helping injured wild birds return to their homes after fracture repair. His interest in the area of compassionate dog and cat behaviour training lead him to begin puppy socialization classes (kindergarten) where he currently teaches new pet owners about a kinder way to understand dogs and cats. He teaches children in school visits about the care of their pets ‘great and small’ helping to broaden their understanding of our relationship to pets.
