Dr. Brittni Milligan

Veterinarian

Brittni has always had a special bond with all animals and felt that she wanted to help and protect them. As she got older, she realized how much she loved biology and other sciences so decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. She completed her undergraduate degree with an Honours in Biology at Mount Saint Vincent University in 2011, and then attended the Atlantic Veterinary College to graduate with the class of 2015.

Brittni’s favourite area of veterinary medicine has shifted in recent years from routine care and wellness to emergency and critical care and emergency surgery. She enjoys complicated cases in which she has to put her internal medicine skills to the test, and loves anything to do with ophthalmology. Brittni has a special interest in companion pig medicine and surgery and offers exams, vaccinations, hoof trims and spays and neuters for companion pigs throughout the HRM and beyond.

Brittni’s favourite part of working with the team at 4 Paws Veterinary Hospital is how it feels like an extended family to her, and how everyone has their own important role to make things as easy and enjoyable as possible for the patients, the clients and the rest of the staff.

A fun fact about Brittni is that she loves to work with rescue groups, and has a special place in her heart for special needs and geriatric pets. She and her husband currently share their home with two cats, a blind chiweenie, an elderly lab with food allergies, a big goofy cane corso, and a house pig, as well as the occasional foster dog!

What You Should Know About Onion and Garlic Toxicities in Pets

Many people don’t realize that onions and garlic are toxic to pets.  It is so sparsely known that garlic powder is actually a dangerously common ingredient in some homemade dog treat recipes found online.  They are also very common ingredients in many different dishes that we humans love to make, so we need to be extra careful to not allow our pets to ingest anything containing these ingredients. No more licking the plate for Fido and Fluffy!
