Alex Young, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technologist
Alex completed her volunteer hours and practicum at Didsbury Vet and worked here as a technician ever since graduating from school in Nova Scotia in 2019. Alex is from Carstairs, where she grew up showing steers and heifers in the local 4-H club. She now lives just east of Crossfield on a farm with her dog, Arlo (nickname “Bean”), and her cat, Little. Her favourite aspects of the job are surgery, beef cattle medicine and, of course, the puppy cuddles. In her spare time, you can find Alex with a camera in hand, either taking pictures of cattle or dogs. She has displayed some of her work around the clinic. Alex is looking forward to seeing your furry friends come to the clinic for a visit; she will be waiting with lots of treats!

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
  • 3. OPERATING HOURS We are OPEN with the following hours:
    Monday to Friday: 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
