Dr. June Milliken
Passions: Feline Medicine, Feline Internal Medicine, Family Practice.
Dr Milliken knew from the time she entered school that she wanted to become a veterinarian. She was always fascinated with animals and wanted to be able to help them. After 3 years of sciences at the University of Alberta, she headed off to learn how at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon; four years later was granted her D.V.M. “With Distinction.” Dr Milliken began practicing small animal medicine around the lower mainland after graduation and settled on the North Shore to share in Highlands Animal Hospital with her husband in 1988.
Dr Milliken loves to get to know her patients and their caregivers, believing that knowing both will enable her to give the best possible care. Her passion for providing excellent pet care spreads infectiously to all aspects of her practice and her team. True to her original interest, Dr Milliken remains devoted to the veterinary equivalent of ‘family’ practice. She also has a special interest in feline internal medicine.
Outside of work Dr Milliken is an avid rower and loves to cook with a bias toward good nutrition. She has lived in North Vancouver for the past two decades, raising two kids with her husband Brad. They now share the house with an active 8 year old yellow lab, a big old Maine Coon cat and a petite and talkative blue point Siamese.
