Eloise Stikeman, BVMS, Hons. Bsc
Resident Internal Medicine
Dr. Eloise Stikeman was born and raised in Toronto, Canada wherefrom she obtained her undergraduate degree in Zoology and Psychology from the University of Toronto. She moved to Australia to attend veterinary school at Murdoch University and was a founding executive and two-term president of the university's animal welfare society, focusing on animal well-being in education and organizing veterinary relief for crises abroad.
Following graduation, she practiced in Canada briefly before undertaking a rotating internship in West Hartford, Connecticut. She subsequently moved inside the beltway to work as a generalist in a busy private practice in Washington DC where she focused on continuing education for the hospital's technician staff and offered a free veterinary acupuncture service to her patients with owners interested in pursuing alternative medicine.
She joined the team at CVSC in 2014 to pursue her love of Internal Medicine as a Specialist Intern, and is deeply honoured to stay on as the department's first resident. Her areas of interest include gastroenterology at large, protein-losing enteropathies in particular, as well as cardiology and fungal diseases.
When not working she can usually be found watching a Blue Jays baseball game, planning her next travel adventure, or studying 20th century history (especially WWII). All the while she is kept perpetually on her toes by the antics of her cat, Eleanor Rigby.
