Dr. Susan Ostapak is an experienced and caring veterinarian who is truly humbled to help humans take care of those who have no voice. She was born, raised and educated in Saskatchewan, Canada receiving her BSc and DVM at the University of Saskatchewan and as well has completed a fellowship in Emergency Medicine and Critical care at the University of California in Davis. Along with experience in Zoo Medicine, her interest in wildlife has led her to various research and conservation projects working with elk, tapirs, tortoises, muskox, black rhino and most extensively with lemurs in Madagascar. (See wildlifehealthnet.org).
Susan appreciates the problem-solving aspect of Emergency Medicine and feels privileged to work at PESCM within a community of smart and compassionate people. She enjoys spending time with her husband and son, sharing their interests in traveling, skiing, hiking, biking and participating in “off the grid” adventures, as well as talking long walks with their “golden girls”.
