Dr. Allison Finlay



Dr. Allison Finlay was born and raised in the Leaside neighbourhood of Toronto. She began her career in the same area after graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2007 and moved to Ottawa with her husband in the fall of the same year. Dr. Finlay has been practicing in Ottawa ever since. Her professional interests include wellness and geriatric medicine as well as oncology (the treatment of cancer), and especially cherishes the bonds that she is able to form with both her patients and their owners. And, of course, she loves all things Golden Retriever!

Outside of the hospital, Dr. Finlay loves to keep active with her husband and two dogs, Alley a 12-year-old mixed breed former teaching dog from the Ontario Veterinary College and Archie Lewis a 3-year-old Golden Retriever. She is also a self-proclaimed foodie and loves to spend time in the kitchen recreating recipes from the food network!
