About Dr. Helene Childs

Dr. Childs has a passion for treating each patient uniquely depending on their individual needs. She is an early adopter of the latest leading-edge technology, progressive conventional medicine and alternative therapies. Her background in evidence-based medicine, combined with an open mind and her ability to listen and appreciate the nuances in each case, enable a tailor-made approach to each patient.

Dr. Childs has a wealth of experience in dermatology (skin issues), cardiology (heart conditions), imaging (X-rays etc), dentistry, pharmacology, and much more!

In short, your pet will receive a unique medical plan based on their individual needs–no cookie cutters used here!

A BC local, Helene went to Quesnel high school in Northern BC where her family runs a small ski resort (trollresort.com). She grew up on skis and, true to her Norwegian roots, competed in ski jumping, cross country skiing, and downhill racing; now she prefers to hike, cycle, and kayak. Her pets at home include Simi, a lovely black kitty, and Pan a three legged rescue mutt.

Dr. Childs is very close to her family, most of whom reside in the Okanagan. This includes her uncle, Dr. David Kopp, who owns a veterinary practice in Penticton, and who has always been her inspiration.

After graduating Helene completed an honors degree in Health Sciences at the Faculty of Medicine in Calgary. Her research in cardiovascular MRI with top cardiologists and physiologists fueled her love of internal medicine and advanced imaging.

Through a scholarship she was offered a 4 month opportunity to partake in a project in Africa with HIV and TB virologists. Interestingly, her work with local veterinarians in Ethiopia further solidified her passion for veterinary medicine.

After Calgary, she studied for four years in Saskatoon at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, the only Canadian school for BC veterinarians. She continued to pursue her interests in internal medicine and advanced imaging research throughout vet school, but we’ll spare you the details. If you search her on PubMed you’ll find plenty of research articles she’s authored and coauthored.

Among other adventures, Helene has also been part of Veterinarians Without Borders and spent time volunteering at rescues in Thailand and a canine rehabilitation facility in Rome, Italy. She’s also worked at various clinics throughout BC and the lower mainland and is excited to call West End her home clinic.
