Dr Forslund was born and raised in the beautiful province of Quebec, Canada. Growing up, she immediately discovered a strong love for animals. She grew up with dogs, cats, hamsters and goldfish. She spent countless hours on a friend's 500 acre land amongst horses, deer, peacocks, chickens, ponies, rabbits etc... "From the time I was 5 years old, I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian and help animals."
She graduated from the University of Montreal, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in 1990 and practiced in Canada for the first few years of her career. She had her own veterinary hospital from 1992 to 2000 in Labrador City, Newfoundland, Canada. In the great white north, she enjoyed winter sports such as skiing and snowmobile and summer/fall activities of fishing, swimming, berry picking, long walks with her dog, relaxing in her peaceful A frame cabin. For several years, she was the head veterinarian for the legendary Labrador 400 miles sled dog race.
After several years of northern living, she decided she was ready for warmer climates and moved to Southern California. She has been practicing in Southern California since 2000 and now dedicates her professional carreer to pet hospice care and in-home euthanasia.
