Dr. Mimi Ehrlich arrived at the Ajax Animal Hospital fresh from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1992. She left a career as a computer operator to go back to school as an adult as she cannot imagine any vocation that could be more rewarding than her current one because it allows her to play a key role in nurturing the Human Animal Bond.
Her special interests include Behaviour, Internal Medicine, Ultrasound, and Emergency Medicine. She also enjoys looking after the special needs of pocket pets (rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, rats). Her husband, Frank, was the motivating factor in Mimi's career choice as he first introduced her to the possibility of cats as pets! Her cat family includes Faith & Courage (a mother and son) and most recently a silver tabby named Gemma joined their home. They are all beautiful rescue cats, and it seems that Mimi spends much of her spare time cleaning up cat hair and serving her beloved furry family members ("Dogs have owners, cats have staff").
Her other interests include karate (she holds a second degree black belt!), and making home-made sushi and chocolate. She also has a love of adventure travel ranging from scuba diving to canyoneering. Mimi is dedicated to teaching and has played an important role in the lives of many future veterinarians through her mentorship and enthusiastic approach to veterinary medicine. She also uses this skill to help pet parents address behaviour and health problems in their beloved pets by providing knowledge and concrete plans for home care.
Recently, she has pursued additional training in the "Fear Free" Method of Veterinary Care and has helped our team become even more inviting for our patients!
