It’s due to our wonderful, compassionate and caring staff that Oxford Animal Hospital Spay & Neuter Centre has been successful these many years. Please take a moment to learn a little bit about our staff below.
Dr. Tamer Mahmoud
Dr. Tamer began his entrepreneurship early in 2001 in the form of a rabbit farm at the same time as finishing his schooling with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. After graduation he joined the Pfizer Pharmaceutical Company while continuing to grow his farm.
In 2009 Dr. Tamer decided to join the team of a busy veterinary clinic in Montreal before moving to Alberta in 2013.
Here he volunteered at the Edmonton Humane Society and had an amazing experience practicing medicine with both the staff and the animals they treat. By mid 2014 he received an offer from one of the biggest veterinary hospitals in the United States where he worked for almost a year.
Finally in 2015 Dr. Tamer returned to Alberta and opened his own practice, Oxford Animal Hospital, with the partnership of two other veterinarians.
His main area of interest is in small animal surgery.
In his leisure time Dr. Tamer loves swimming, travelling, and playing basketball.
Dr. Wesam Awadin
Graduating from university with her degree in veterinary medicine in 2002 Dr. Wesam started her career as a consultant for a well known pharmaceutical company.
After seven years with the pharmaceutical company she decided to become a practicing veterinarian and joined a busy clinic in Quebec.
At this clinic Dr. Wesam had the opportunity to perform thousands of surgeries and experience a wide variety of medical cases.
In 2014 she made the decision to move to Edmonton, where she joined a busy clinic in south Edmonton, and not long after became a founding partner of her own clinic Oxford Animal Hospital. She loves to exercise her compassion, patience, and love of challenges and is very particularly passionate about surgery and dental work.
Dr. Wesam is married with two lovely daughters and a cat named Krispy. In her spare time she likes to go camping, swimming, and travel to fascinating new places.
Alicia recently graduated from Olds College as a Veterinary Technologist and moved here from Calgary after her wedding. She has always loved spending time with animals both big and small, whether its cuddling kittens at work or riding horses when she gets the chance. Her animal family includes Joey the Ball Python and Sis the Tetra. Its small and exotic but sure to grow to include some fuzzy buddies soon!
Taylor joined our team first as a volunteer in 2016 and after months of volunteering she joined our team in 2017 as a receptionist. She plans on going to school to become a veterinary technician then later becoming a veterinarian and opening her own clinic and rescue. Born and raised in Edmonton her love for animals started with her first cat Cleo when she was 2 then grew to owning a leopard gecko named Charlie, and now she owns three miniature dachshunds named Marley, Molly and Moe and she’s hoping to add more furry friends to her family. When she’s not in the clinic working she’s helping infinite woofs animal rescue society, playing soccer, working out at the gym or going hiking with friends and playing with her dogs, and hiking or backpacking in the mountains and traveling around the world.
Sara joined our team and began her career as a veterinary technician after her graduation from NAIT in 2017. Born and mostly raised in Edmonton, her love for animals started young, and continued as a young adult. With hard work and determination, she endured two years of school and achieved her goal of fully licensed technician. Her passion has led her to volunteer her days off to help wild animals in need at WILDNorth Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation. In her spare time she enjoys listening to and making music, dancing, and spending time with her two Yorkie puppies.
Born and raised in England, Jennifer moved to Canada in March 2015 following a work opportunity for her husband. They moved to Edmonton leaving their family and friends behind except their two husky fur-kids whom they couldn’t bare to be apart from!
Having worked in an office for a small company back in the UK, she wished she had gone to university to graduate and work with animals in some way or form. But after a routine vet appointment for her dogs, she ended up leaving with her dream job and now works hands on with animals everyday!
