Dr. Rocky Lis
Dr. Rocky Lis was born and mostly raised in British Columbia but has lived and travelled far and wide. He has lived in five Canadian provinces and has lived, worked and travelled through six continents. Animals have always been a part of these adventures: growing up with huskies, rabbits, backyard chickens and uncountable cats, studying wildlife as a field biologist, or assisting rural Ugandan communities to improve their goat and poultry care. His path to becoming a veterinarian has been circuitous and has brought him to a meaningful profession, one in which each day he gets to improve the health of animal family members.
Dr. Lis completed his Bachelor of Science at the University of Victoria, his Master of Applied Science at the University of British Columbia, and in 2009 completed his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. Since graduation he has enjoyed the diversity of experience as a locum veterinarian working at emergency and small animal and exotic veterinary practices throughout British Columbia and in Nova Scotia. Dr. Lis has special interests in exotic and avian medicine, as well as emergency medicine, surgery, and dentistry.
Dr. Lis and his family enjoy getting outdoors into nature to hike and cycle local trails, ski, canoe and bird watch.
