Hi! My name is Lucia Delgado de la Flor and I’m the new veterinarian and medical director here at VetsToronto Kingston Road Animal Hospital. I grew up in Peru’s capital, Lima; a beautiful city by the sea filled with good people and even better food. I knew I wanted to be a vet since I was a little girl and spent most of my childhood chasing animals on my grandfather’s farm or trying to get bandages to stick on the family dog. I went to one of the top schools in Lima and graduated third in my class in 2010 with an interest in small animal medicine and wildlife.
In 2012 I got married and soon after that my husband Alejandro moved to Canada. It took almost 2 years and even more sweat and tears, but by the end of 2014, I was licensed to practice veterinary medicine here in Canada. I have been happily working at one of our sister clinics since 2014 and in 2019 I got the wonderful opportunity to transfer here to VetsToronto.
I know the clinic has gone through a lot of changes in the last couple of years, but I’m fully invested in helping it reach its full potential with the help of our amazing team and, of course, our brilliant clients! I have a special interest in making every visit to the clinic stress-free and positive interaction for every patient as much as we possibly can because we love to see your pets and it’s better when the feeling is mutual! Asides from being fear-free certified, I’m an expert in belly rubs, treat-giving, and cuddling, exclusively with patients. Also skilled in laser surgery, ultrasound, and (coming soon!) Endoscopy.
On a personal note, my husband and I own a beautiful grey and white leukemia positive cat named Abbey Road (or maybe I should say she owns us!) We also have a rescue dog named Calypso (rescued from the meat trade in Thailand) and a senior hyperthyroid rescue cat aptly named Doctor “wait-for-it!”. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon, even if it’s just for a quick hello and a treat, please come say hi! :)
