Dr. Zulma Poveda

Dr. Zulma Poveda has had experience with companion animals from a very young age. Throughout her childhood, there was always a dog in the home. She also was introduced to larger animals by being able to help with calving and milking cows at her uncle’s dairy farm. In her teen years, she worked with pet food companies. She then received her degree in Veterinary Medicine at La Salle University and received her North American license to practice in 2008 by successfully passing her exams in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dr. Poveda’s goal is to be seen as a caring and dedicated veterinarian to clients. A veterinarian who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure highest quality of care.

Dr. Poveda is proud to call Strathmore, AB home, having established roots here with her husband, two children and their dog Luna (pictured). Dr. Poveda’s mantra is there is always room for improvement.
