A Letter from Dr. Richter

To all my valued clients at Burnaby Veterinary Hospital,

It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you that I will be leaving Burnaby Veterinary Hospital to pursue my residency in Veterinary Behavioral Medicine on a full-time basis.

I have spent ten wonderful years working at BVH, first as an employee, then as hospital owner, and finally as a proud member of the BC SPCA team. During that time, it has been my pleasure to work with all of you, my amazing clients, and to participate in the care of your wonderful pets. I have enjoyed getting to know each of you and will miss you all dearly!

While leaving BVH is very hard for me, I take comfort knowing that the entire BVH team, under the direction of Drs. Mantler and Grundy, will continue to serve you and your pets with best-in-class care and professionalism. I am also certain that the leadership of the BC SPCA will ensure BVH’s community activism and social responsibility is maintained into the future. I am very proud of what BVH has become and could not have asked for a better group of professionals to continue on the legacy myself and my team has worked to build!

On a personal note, I wish to thank you for entrusting me to be part of your pet’s care over the last ten years. It has been a privilege and a true honor. Many of us have been through lots of ups and downs together over the years and I have grown personally and learned professionally from each and every case I have seen. The knowledge that you trusted my guidance on our journeys together gives me strength and confidence as I work towards branching out into new and different areas of Veterinary Medicine!

All the best to you and your families going forward! My apologies in advance to anyone who I may not get a chance to say goodbye to in person before I go.


Claudia Richter, DVM
