Our Team


Dr. David Oladipo


Dr. David graduated from the Veterinary faculty at the University of Ibadan in Nigeria, West Africa in 1994. He had one year of practice experience in food animal practice at popular Obudu Cattle Ranch during the mandatory one-year national service. He devoted the next nine years to small animal practice which was divided between the clinic and home veterinary services. He had great joy meeting his clients and helping to care for their precious creatures in various home settings across the sprawling city of Lagos Nigeria.


The quest for advanced knowledge and practice of veterinary medicine and surgery brought him to North America. He arrived at the shore of Canada in December 2004 as a Permanent Resident. He was in Calgary for a year and then moved to Edmonton where he has stayed ever since. He successfully completed the board certification requirements to practice veterinary medicine in North America and he has been in companion animal practice since 2008.


Dr. David enjoys every aspect of companion animal practice. He loves to meet clients and their precious creatures who share the comfort of their homes and lives. In this new exciting phase, he is bringing his extensive wealth of experience to provide veterinary health care to the communities of Walker Lake and its surroundings. He looks forward to seeing you and your pets. Dr. David is married to his soul mate; Bola, a Pharmacist, and they are blessed with two children.

Jacqueline Ratushniak

Veterinary Medical Assistant

Jacqueline was born in a small town in Venezuela and was raised in Edmonton after her family moved to Canada when she was 4 years old. Growing up she was always surrounded and fascinated by animals. Her family had three dogs and one cat. Her love of animals took her to the Humane Society where she volunteered in her spare time. Her passion for working with animals lead her to the discovery of the VMA profession and it wasn’t long before she was enrolled.



Jacqueline is a recent NAIT graduate who is excited to bring her new skills to practice and provide care to our patients. She is now working towards becoming a technician and is a part-time student currently enrolled at NAIT.


Her interests outside of work include being active with her border collie Roxy and exploring Canada’s outdoors. She loves to travel as well as spend time with her family and friends. You might see her at the local dog park or hiking in the mountains. Don’t be shy, say hi!
