Dr. Candace Stuart, BSc., DVM

Dr. Candace Stuart, BSc., DVM

Dr. Candace Stuart grew up under the Northern Lights of Labrador. She knew she wanted to be a veterinarian from watching the first episode of Danger Bay, and from helping with vet checks at the Labrador 400 dog sled race as a high school student.

Dr. Candace graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College on Prince Edward Island in 2000. After 8 years of washing the red sand of PEI out of everything she made a bee-line to the snowy north. After spending the next few years working in Alaska and northern BC, an opening in Whitehorse came up in February 2004 and Dr. Candace has called Whitehorse ‘home’ ever since.

The variety of cases in general practice North of 60 is what Dr. Candace loves the most about her clinic. She has treated an array of birds to woolly Yaks and everything in between. Her passion in private practice is helping to strengthen and protect the animal/human bond and loves watching families grow together with their pets.

When not at the clinic Dr. Candace explores the Yukon wilderness with her 2-legged and 4-legged family members.

Dr. Jeleena Neufeld, DVM

Dr. Jeleena Neufeld, DVM

Dr. Jeleena grew up on an acreage outside of Dawson Creek, experiencing a childhood filled with playing in the mud with pigs, going on adventures with her dogs, making friends with the feral cats, and enjoying the outdoors. She remembers wanting to become a veterinarian when she was in preschool, and she never wavered from that path. 

Dr. Jeleena graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2016 and came back to her hometown to practice, before joining the All Paws family in January of 2019. Jeleena loves the variety that veterinary medicine offers on a day to day basis, but has a passion for rehabilitation and internal medicine. 

Jeleena, along with her regal, handsome, loved beyond measure, heart dog, Wellington, and her fearless, visually impaired, hooligan cat Clarabelle, have made Whitehorse their home.
