Harsh Joshi

BVSC & AH, DVM

I graduated from the Punjab Agricultural University in 2011. After graduation, I enjoyed providing veterinary care for large animals until 2018 when I decided to move to Canada. I cleared the veterinary licensing requirement from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatchewan, Canada, and stayed in Kamloops for 2.5 years working in a small animal clinic. Finally, I settled down in Kelowna, the heart of the Okanagan. I love to spend my time away from the hospital with my wife, Rohini, and my domestic shorthair cat, Rosé. I also take great pride in my son, Nitay, and enjoy going on walks and runs with him daily.

BarinderPal Sidhu

BVSC & AH, DVM

I graduated from the Punjab Agricultural University, in 2011 with Dr. Joshi. I cleared my veterinary licensing requirement from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatchewan, Canada. Before moving to Kelowna, I worked in a small animal clinic for 2 years in the city of Airdrie, AB. Since then, I have moved to Kelowna with my wife, Monica, and my son, Kabir. I enjoy travelling, photography, outdoor activities and visiting my family and friends. I also love spending time with my 2 cats, adopted from a rescue, Triskit and Lettuce. Settling down in the Okanagan was always a dream of Dr.Joshi and I since our vet school days together.

Karan Singh (Supervised Veterinarian)

BVSC & AH

Hi, I’m Dr. Karan Singh! After graduating in 2015 from Guru Angad Dev Veterinary University in Punjab, India, I spent several years working with large farm animals before moving to Canada. Both Dr. Joshi and Dr. Sidhu have mentored me since I joined the team at Spall and Harvey in December 2021. Presently, I am working as an Associate Veterinarian and am registered with the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA). During my free time, I love hiking, reading, and exploring new places. Besides a love for cats and dogs, I am also an avid equestrian with a former specialty in Dressage, Show Jumping, and Tent Pegging! I hope to provide you and your four-legged friends with the best possible care! 

Karanveer Singh (Supervised Veterinarian)

BVSC & AH

Hello everyone, I’m Dr. Karanveer Singh! Since my graduation from Khalsa College of Veterinary Sciences in 2018, I have worked with a variety of companion animals. I spent 2 years working in Chandigarh, India in a small animal practice before immigrating to Canada in 2020. Under the mentorship of Dr. Joshi and Dr. Sidhu I have since been licensed according to Canadian legislation and continue to work under their guidance. I love to spend my free time reading books, trail running, and exploring Kelowna.  

Our Team

Gautam Gulati (Manager)

I have studied international business in Canada but followed my passion to serve animals by joining this hospital as a vet assistant. I was honored to be promoted to clinic manager where I can apply my business knowledge as well. My love for dogs began when my father brought my pet Leo home when I was 23. He is now 6 years old and an integral part of my life. I knew right then and there that I wanted to build my career around making the lives of animals better. I first started working with cats when the clinic opened and Triskit, our lovable orange clinic kitty soon became my son. Every day when I get to work, he runs to the door to greet me the minute he hears my voice. This is the best part of my day every day. Working with animals brings me immense joy and gives me purpose. I feel very blessed working alongside our amazing doctors and the team, keeping animals happy and healthy! 

Vanessa Mitcham

If you asked me what I wanted to be when I was a child I would’ve said a veterinarian. To this day I still feel the exact same! I am currently working towards my career goal by studying zoology at UBC Okanagan and gaining valuable experience here at Spall and Harvey Animal Hospital. In the future I hope to attend vet school to get my DVM. I would love to travel for work and specialize in exotic animals. It is my absolute dream to one day work with kangaroos and koalas in Australia, or even tigers and elephants in Thailand!

Nyah Adams

From a young age I’ve always had an infinite love for animals, growing up with everything from cats and dogs to chickens. I quickly found out how passionate I was for working with animals. I moved to Kelowna with my cat Soy Soy and recently just welcomed a new cat member to our family (Marshmallow). I am so excited to be a part of Spall & Harvey Animal Hospital and learn from such talented and compassionate Doctors. Nothing compares to helping animals in need.

Kaylee Lewis

Hello everyone, my name is Kaylee Lewis! I’m 28 years old and I attended and graduated from the VHA program here in Kelowna. I have a 3 year old Newfoundland dog named Abigail and she is my pride and joy! I love baking treats for humans and animals alike and one day, hope to sell specialized treats for pets with dietary restrictions. 

Nevada Hutchison

As a little girl I always dreamed of working in a vet clinic. I’ve always had a love for animals. Growing up we always had a wide range of animals from dogs and cats to small animals and reptiles. I previously volunteered at the local S.P.C.A and helped my mom out with fostering all sorts of animals. My first job was at a local pet store where my passion for all animals grew. I recently moved to Kelowna with my dog Kilo and cat Boomer and decided I’d love to further my passion for animals at Spall and Harvey Animal Hospital. In my down time you can find me hiking around Kelowna and spending time with my pets. I look forward to meeting you and your beloved pets and keeping them comfortable while they get the best vet care provided!

Mira Lindeboom

As far as I can remember I knew I wanted to work with animals. As a kid I was always so fascinated and had a strong passion for animals and knew I wanted to get a job where I could help them. I recently graduated from the Veterinarian Health Care Assistant course with CDI college. I began working here at Spall and Harvey Animal Hospital to complete my practicum hours for school and I have been here ever since. Working here has been such an amazing experience. I never could have imagined I would find a job I looked forward to going to every single morning. I am so grateful to be a part of this team and feel so blessed to be working alongside such talented doctors and am excited to continue to expand my knowledge in this field.

Kira Shim

Hi there, I’m Kira! Having grown up with dogs all my life I am so excited to be a part of the team here at Spall and Harvey. I’m currently studying at UBCO towards a degree in Medicinal Biochemistry with aspirations for medical school one day. When I’m not doing that, you can usually find me out hanging off some rocks somewhere! My family and I rescued two fur babies 8 years ago, brothers; Jamie (left) and Noah (right). Noah unfortunately was diagnosed with Addison’s disease and has been to his fair share of vets over the years. Trust me, I know firsthand how scary it can be when your pet is sick. After working with everyone here, there is no one I would trust more to look after my pups than the staff at Spall and Harvey! 

Haille Ragusa

Hey! My name is Haille and I am originally from Toronto, Ontario! I am currently here in Kelowna studying Zoology at the University of British Columbia. The plan is (and always was!) to go to veterinary school to get my DVM. I have been working at a vet hospital since I was 12 years old, and I cannot wait to expand my knowledge in a new province! If I’m not studying for my biochemistry exam, you’ll find me hiking, playing hockey, skiing or, of course, cuddling all my furry (and scaly) friends. I have a leopard gecko, a fish, a turtle, and a dog back in Toronto! I am absolutely looking forwards to taking care of all your furry family members and making you laugh at all my terrible jokes! See you soon!

Nyomi Skulmoski

Ever since I was little, I’ve been obsessed with animals, especially cats and dogs. I knew no matter what I decided to do with my life, I always wanted to help animals in any way I could. Growing up in an apartment that didn’t allow pets was hard, thankfully my grandma started up her own cat sitting business. I always got to tag along and learn how to properly care for cats and small dogs. In my free time, I love to make art and spend time with my rescue cat Rosco. He stumbled upon my house late last year as a feral and malnourished stray, who was very scared of people. Over time (and lots of nice meals) he finally began to trust me and is now my cuddly son. My dream is to open my own cat café to help rescue and adopt out as many cats as I can! I am so blessed to be working at Spall and Harvey Animal Hospital where I can comfort, help, and spend time with everyone’s fur babies. 

Jenifer Calhoun

Hello! My name is Jen. I’m a mom of 3 beautiful children, 2 Aussiedoodles, 1 cat, 1 bearded dragon, and 1 veiled chameleon. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve wanted to be surrounded by as many animals as possible. I have worked towards my goal by completing my diploma to be a Veterinary Assistant. I hope to further my education and become a Veterinary Technician in the future. I am honored to be working with such wonderful doctors and staff at Spall and Harvey Animal Hospital. 

Jessica Friesen

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a soft spot for animals. While growing up, I was mostly surrounded by dogs which deepened my love for them. Now I have my very own fur baby named Cassie, an 8-year-old Cocker Spaniel! My first job was working at a doggy day care in Saskatchewan, and when I moved to Kelowna, I continued my career in the daycare business. I have now decided to explore my passion and apply my skills at Spall and Harvey Animal Hospital. I am excited to be a part of the amazing team here and meet all your lovely pets! 

April Cook

I moved to the Okanagan 4 years ago to attend post-secondary education at the University of British Columbia here in Kelowna. After the completion of my degree, I plan to pursue my goal of working with animals by applying into veterinary medicine back in my home province, Saskatchewan. I am thrilled to be a part of the team here at Spall and Harvey Animal hospital and I look forward to caring for your loving pets.
