Dr. Maggie Rockx
Dr. Rockx has had a lifelong passion for working with animals. The veterinary profession was the natural answer when combining her enjoyment of studying biology with problem-solving. It is this career that inspires her with its challenges and provides the opportunity for continued learning and growth.
After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2016, Dr. Rockx worked in Windsor, Ontario. When offered an opportunity to join the Abbey Animal Hospital team in 2017, she gladly accepted to move back to her neck of the woods. She strives daily to work with patients and their families to maintain and improve their quality of life and strengthen the bond within the family.
When not at the clinic, Dr. Rockx spends her time with her dog, Bee, and her rabbits, Viola and Macchiato. She usually also has a foster rabbit (or two, or more!) and participates in a Trap-Neuter-Return program for community cats, following her special interests in exotic small mammals and shelter medicine. She enjoys hiking, gardening and baking.
Dr. Rockx recognizes that each individual is unique; with each of her patients, she considers not only their medical needs but also their behaviours and their families to determine the best plans for them.
