Meet Our Team
Dr. Trisha Rodé, DVM

When Dr. Rodé is not in the hospital, she’s enjoying her time with her spouse and her fur-family; Teddy the poodle, Edward the Island cat, and Vince the barn kitten.  You may also find her having fun riding horses, drag racing, or volunteering with community events.
  Dr. Trisha Rodé knew she wanted to be a veterinarian from a very young age. Working in a small animal clinic during high school, she was a cleaner, weekend animal care attendant, and receptionist. With encouragement from her employer she became a Registered Veterinary Technician.  Learning and loving the job solidified the commitment to apply to vet school and follow her dream.  In 2005, she graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College, UPEI. While working in various practices across Ontario, Dr. Rodé has developed a vast knowledge and special interest in pain management, surgery, and emergency medicine.

Her dream has now come full circle with the opening of her new venture “Haldimand Animal Hospital”, in Cayuga, Ontario. As a veterinarian, nothing could be more fulfilling than snuggling your beloved companions while helping you ensure their best possible health.
Lindsey, RVT

Lindsey grew up in Cayuga, and now resides in Port Dover with her husband Aaron, and their dog and cat Meika and Daisy. She enjoys quality time with family and friends, staying active, volunteering, reading, and sampling the wines of the world. Her guilty pleasures are the soap opera, Days of Our Lives, travelling to sunny beach resorts, and discovering new places to dine out.
  Lindsey graduated from the Veterinary Technician Program at Seneca College in 2007 before travelleing to South Africa to take part in EcoLife's 'Vet Nurses in the Wild' program.  During this volunteer work, she got the opportunity to work alongside 'The Big Five', while focusing on veterinary care in rural areas, wildlife diseases, animal rehabilitation, and game capture and transfer techniques.

Having worked at various animal hospitals in the Haldimand-Norfolk area, Lindsey has had the opportunity to work with several veterinarians; as a result, she gained valuable experience and knowledge within her field.  She is thrilled to be working at the Haldimand Animal Hospital, where her primary concern will always be the care and welfare of your pets. Lindsey takes pride in treating every animal as if it were her own.

Alicia, RVT

Outside of work, Alicia is active with her soccer and volleyball teams, going on nature walks with her canine companion, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. As for her own furry companions, Alicia has adopted four cats, two sugar gliders, and a sweet elderly beagle...and occasionally, fosters an orphaned kitten, or two, or three, from a local rescue.
  Alicia, a Registered Veterinary Technician, started with Haldimand Animal Hospital in October, 2015, to cover a maternity leave. But since, has happily agreed to join our team part-time! She graduated from Ridgetown College, achieving the Veterinary Office Administration certificate, and the Veterinary Technician diploma from Georgian College. She enjoys developing client relationships and educating pet parents on providing their companions with the best care possible.

Alicia also completed an externship program for RVTs at the Vancouver Aquarium, in Vancouver, BC. During this externship, she helped assist alongside Dr. Martin Haulena and associates in the first-ever bowel surgery on a white-sided dolphin, as well as the daily care of some sea lions, otters, and an orphaned false killer whale. Her interest and experience in aquatic and wildlife species is helpful when the need arises to assist with some pocket pets, injured, or orphaned wildlife in the hospital.

Sydney, RVT

Sydney grew up in the little town of Attercliffe, but currently lives in Dunnville with her husband, son, and dog, Gromit. She enjoys spending time with her family, going for hikes, and reading a good book.
  Sydney grew up surrounded by animals; dogs, cats, rabbits, parrots and a pot-bellied pig to name a few! She knew from a very young age that she wanted to help animals in need.

During high school, she volunteered at The Owl Foundation in Vineland.  She was able to learn valuable handling skills, assist with treatments, and rehabilitation of orphaned and injured owls and raptors.  This sparked the passion to pursue a hands-on career nursing animals back to health.  She graduated with Honors from the Veterinary Technician program at Sheridan College in 2013 and successfully obtained her Registered Veterinary Technician status.

Since becoming an RVT, she’s excelled at patient care and fostering client relationships.  Sydney understands the importance of providing families with the information to protect and improve the health of their furry family members.  We’re fortunate she’s joined the team to serve the clients and patients of Haldimand Animal Hospital.
