  • Dr.
    Miranda Logan

    Dr. Logan graduated from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College with a B.Sc. in Animal Science in 1996 and earned her DVM in 2000 from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown, P.E.I. She has been practicing in Okotoks since May 2000 and opened the Foothills Animal Hospital as the Owner/Veterinarian in May 2004.

    She grew up in Otterbrook, Nova-Scotia surrounded by animals. Her mother, Heather A. Logan, ran  Cloverfield Kennels for 35+ years. This was a boarding kennel for 50 dogs and a breeding kennel of Labrador Retrievers. Dr. Logan has been training dogs since 1980 for competition obedience and conformation. Since 1992, she has been using operant conditioning – behaviour analysis (a.k.a. clicker training) on dogs as well as a number of other species (llamas, miniature donkeys, horses, goats, tigers, giraffes, grizzly bears and chickens).

    Her Whippet Fitz comes to work with her every day.  His jobs include: demonstrating clicker training, working with dogs with mental health disorders, testing new toys and cuddling with anyone who needs a hug.

  • Dr. Delaney Schofer

    Dr. Delaney Schofer grew up in Calgary, and went to Western University, in London, Ontario for her undergraduate degree. She then went on to obtain her DVM from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. Her first year and a half of practice was spent working in rural mixed animal practice, where she saw everything from dogs and cats, to horses, cattle, alpacas, ducks, and rabbits! 

    She has a special love of all things related to cats, and growing up with Siamese cats means that her favourite cats have blue, crossed-eyes. She currently lives with her own little Siamese kitty named Lewis (or rather, he is the master of the house that she happens to live in).
