Dr. Ashley N. Butt


I am a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady and love all things cat! However, my veterinary journey began while working with a chronically ill horse. Working with her sparked my interest in veterinary medicine, and it wasn't long before I found myself at the Nova Scotia Agricultural College for pre-veterinary studies.

A few years later, I was accepted into a DVM program, and I graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College, UPEI, in May 2018. I am looking forward to working with our Sunrise clients and all of their beloved pets! I have worked at Sunrise Animal Hospital on and off since 2010, starting out in reception, moving into treatment, and then doing technician work during my off time in veterinary school. Now I have come full circle and started working here as a veterinarian in July 2018!

My veterinary areas of interest are preventative medicine, feline medicine and senior pet care. I absolutely love client education and taking the time to get to know our clients and their pets!

The staff at Sunrise are truly amazing, super friendly and so dedicated to their furry patients. I always feel that…
