Dr. Hiebert's family had a menagerie of pets and farm animals in northern Canada. After the first time their veterinarian came to their farm to examine one of the cows, Dr. Hiebert decided that he wanted to become a veterinarian too. He studied veterinary medicine at Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Canada and has been practicing since 1990. In 2001, Dr. Hiebert joined the medical team at our hospital and shortly afterward became a partner. VCA TLC Animal Hospital has since become his home away from home.
Early in his career Dr. Hiebert started a branch of the SPCA in his hometown in northern Canada. He became involved in the BC Veterinary Association and eventually served as president for a term. He is currently licensed to practice in California.
Dr. Hiebert is a member of the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society and Southern California Veterinary Medical Associations. He also has a special interest in critical care medicine as well as surgery.
As Co-Medical Director at VCA TLC, Dr. Hiebert strives to continue to improve on the services we provide. He believes that being a veterinarian is more like a way of life than a profession. Also, as time allows, he looks forward to taking some time to travel with his large family and share adventures.
