Canine Companion Clinic

About our team

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
–Anatole France

Canada's first and only canine specific veterinary practice

Founded through the vision and hard work of Lorraine Westermann and Dr. Daniela McLean Calgary now has a team of experienced, local veterinary professionals dedicated to providing a lifetime of exemplary care specifically for your beloved canine companion.

As a privately owned local veterinary clinic, we’re your neighbors! We work, shop, play and volunteer right here in the neighborhood.

Being a privately owned and local business also offers the important benefits of flexibility and transparency with your pets care. You and your pet deserve to have a customized diagnostic and treatment plan that is best for your unique needs. And it feels great to know your dollars are staying in your local community.

Please feel free to call, send us an email, or stop by to say hi. We’d be delighted to hear from you.

Dr. Daniela McLean DVM

Western College of Veterinary Medicine

Dr. Daniela McLean graduated from Saskatoon’s Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994 and promptly returned ‘home’ to Calgary. Since then she has worked as both a locum and an associate in a number of clinics. When contemplating opening her own practice, Daniela says she thought “long and hard about what it was she enjoyed most about practicing veterinary medicine,” and the answer was clear-Dogs! With the support of her family, which includes two Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Dr. McLean has decided to follow her passion and open the country’s first canine specific veterinary practice.
