Connor McCarthy

Animal Care Assistant

After completing the Animal Care Program at Sheridan College in 2014, I dedicated four years to a busy animal hospital in Mississauga. Transitioning from the clinic, I ventured into the realm of veterinary nutrition, initially as a Sales Rep and later as the Technical Manager. However, I found myself missing the more personal interactions with animals and their owners. Since July 2020, I have been part of the Sears Animal Hospital team as an Animal Care Attendant, initially on a part-time basis and transitioning to a full-time role in September 2020.

I’ve frequently declared that animal nutrition is the love of my life, much to my partner’s frustration. No two cases are the same or straightforward forward which presents a fantastic challenge.

My partner and I share our home with a small menagerie of animals: our dogs Josee and Sadie, our cat Abbicus, rabbit Alex (Alexander when he’s naughty), Bearded Dragons Rhea and Hyperion, Ball Pythons Gwen and Arthur, Sailfin Dragon Scorch, Mossy Tree Frogs Rain and Tree Hugger and a tank of tropical fish.
