Dr. Vivek Basu


Growing up in Scarborough, the only thing I have ever wanted to do was to save animals, and so I made it into a career. I studied in Guelph for both my bachelor degree as well as my DVM. I have always been passionate about travelling locally and abroad, so I soon found myself in New Brunswick becoming a Maritimer. I spent years there enjoying the ocean, meeting new people and battling the winters. However eventually I started missing home, so I returned back to Toronto, excited to take the next step in my career and happy to continue saving animals!

Pets I currently own: Aria (Rough collie), Zeus (Rottie mix), Flash (Tri-pod cat)

Fun fact about myself: I have a black belt in martial arts

My heroes: Steve Irwin, Jane Goodall, Spider-man
