Dr. Azhar Ali

(DVM) (Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine)

Dr. Azhar Ali, has been a member of both the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) since she began practicing back in 2010. This is when she first fulfilled her life-long dream of becoming a veterinarian; this dream was generated as a response to the passion she received from the pets that have surrounded her since she was a child.

Over the last five years, Dr. Ali, not only successfully achieved the North American National Board but, has gained excellent experience in small animal medicine and soft tissue surgeries. This experience was gained in a number of different Edmonton-area clinics including, but not limited to, the Edmonton Humane Society and Prevent another Litter Subsidy (PALS) program. As her ultimate goal is to see all animals healthy and happy, Dr. Ali is more than happy to discuss with an owner about their pet’s health issues and advise them professionally with the right treatment.

Beyond the practice, Dr. Ali is married with two boys and has three beautiful cats; in her time off, she enjoys relaxing, playing video games with her oldest son, Uruk, and spending time with her youngest, Adam.

Growing up with a veterinarian as a father, Dr. Pim was granted a special insight into the world of animal health. This insight is one that quickly grew into a passion. In 1999, she followed her father’s career path and earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at the Khonkaen University (located in Thailand). Following this doctorate degree, Dr. Pim moved to Japan to complete a PhD in Theriogenology and Biotechnology of Reproduction. Her career then took her to the United States – to gain more experience and knowledge, Dr. Pim participated in a post-doctoral research practicum at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Here she worked in transgenics and the prevention of certain diseases in cats. She continued this type of work for six years.

Upon marrying her husband, Dr. Pim moved to Edmonton and gave birth to her son. While trying to get her veterinary accreditation from the CVMA and the ABVMA, Dr. Pim worked as a veterinary technologist at Tudor Glen Veterinary Hospital and as a Veterinarian under Supervision at the Edmonton Humane Society. In 2015, Dr. Pim passed her accreditation exams allowing her to practice as a Veterinarian in Canada. Her experience since then includes working at a clinic in St. Albert. Dr. Pim is eager to bring her experiences and knowledge in animal diagnostics to Summerside Vet Hospital.

During her free time, Dr. Pim enjoys traveling, spending time with her friends/family, and swimming.
