Dr. Christina Youé


Dr. Christina, who was born and raised in Ontario, graduated as a DVM from the University of Guelph in 2011. She started her career in general practice at a small animal hospital in Calgary. After a brief time off to start a family, she returned to veterinary medicine as a relief vet working at several clinics across Calgary up until her big move east to join the Amherst/Tantramar team in November of 2019. Together with her partner Ben they loaded up their belongings, 2 kids (Easton and Winsloe) and 2 cats and began a cross Canada journey with the goal of being closer to family and starting a small hobby farm. Christina loves the challenge of  figuring out what is going on with our beloved patients and making a plan that works for each individual pet/family. In 2023 Dr. Youé decided she wanted another challenge and purchased the Tantramar Veterinary Hospital.

Melissa Proctor

Registered Veterinary Technician

Melissa moved back to Nova Scotia in September 2010 to work in the veterinary industry and joined us at the Tantramar Veterinary team in 2020. Upon receiving an animal science degree from the Nova Scotia Agricultural College, Melissa moved to Kamloops, British Columbia. There she successfully completed the Veterinary Technician program at Thompson Rivers University. Melissa is full of energy and often can be found having a conversation with our patients, which they love. We feel fortunate she came back to the Maritimes to join our team. Outside of work, Melissa enjoys being outside and going to all the parks in the area with her son Jacob and husband Trevor.
