Hi! My name is Roxy! I have been living at 16th Ave since January 2022. My owners could not take care of me anymore so 16th Ave welcomed me with open arms. I am working really hard to trust people again, so I may be abit shy or hesitant at first! I love oranges and leaves. You may not see me when you are at the clinic as I’m sleeping away in the back, but just know, I am still the boss!!
Hello! Welcome to 16th Ave Animal Hospital! My name is Dr. Fareed Ahmad. I took over the clinic back in May of 2019. I have over 20 years’ experience as a veterinarian and I am very excited to make this clinic my own! We have made tons of improvements at the clinic to future enhance our ability to treat and diagnose your pet. It is my goal to ensure you and your pet get the best level of care possible. At home, I have a 2 year old cat named Slushy who I adopted from North Toronto Cat Rescue. My goal is to treat every pet that walks, runs or hops through our door like they are my own! I hope to see/meet you soon!
Hello! I’m Dr. Stephanie Hu. I graduated from Edinburgh University Veterinary School in Scotland UK in 2009 after attaining double major degrees in teaching/biology in 2004 at Brock University. My passion has always been animals for as long as I can remember. I have owned dogs, cats, rabbits, rats and a horse over my time. I practiced in the United Kingdom for 10 years after graduating doing companion/exotic animal medicine and emergency work before moving back to Markham in 2018 to be closer to my family. My main interests are surgery and anaesthesia. In my spare time, I enjoy spending it with my 6 year old son and traveling whenever we can. We recently adopted a shih- poo named Zoe who you will likely see at the clinic!
Bio coming soon

Hi there, my name is Mimi and I am a technician here at 16th Ave Animal Hospital. I take pride in ensuring your pet leaves the clinic happy and healthy. I have always had a soft spot for animals, I grew up with dogs, cats, fish, bunnies and even the odd hermit crab. It was not until my family dog, Kysha, passed that I knew I wanted to be a part of a team who cares for animals. I have been in the field since 2017 and joined the 16th Ave team in 2019! We are all one big family here, and having your fur babies here makes you a part of it! When I am not at work, you can see me at the dog park with my two German Shepherds, Duke and Beau or cuddling with my new rescue cat, Finn.
Hello everyone! My name is Karen, I started at 16th Ave back in 2020 as a co-op student. I loved working with animals so much I decided to join the team part-time in 2021. My goal is to become a veterinarian in the future, I am hoping to start school in September 2022. When you visit us, you may see me greeting you at the door, taking medical history and helping Dr. Fareed with exams and treatments! When I first started my co-op at the clinic, there was a bunny who was surrendered, and I automatically fell in love, I decided to adopt him. His name is Alfie!
