He then completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery (IPSAV) in 1994. Dr. Gagnon has practiced in private small animal clinics, principally in the region of Montreal, notably in the emergency department at Centre Vétérinaire DMV in Ville St-Laurent. He was co-owner of a clinic in Montreal for 7 years before acquiring Hôpital Vétérinaire de L’Île-Perrot in 2008. Dr. Gagnon is a conscientious veterinarian who offers quality care based on the most up-to-date and pertinent medical studies. It is Dr. Gagnon’s main priority to be able to offer a variety of treatments that include preventive, medical, and surgical options adapted to the needs of each individual patient.

Dr. Gagnon, manager extraordinaire of Hôpital Vétérinaire de l’Ile Perrot, made the decision to move our location to a brand new 7200 square foot building in order to offer the best possible service to our growing clientele. Dr. Gagnon’s vision, experience and desire to offer his clients veterinary services in a modern, pleasant, welcoming place, led to the acquisition of the building at 400 Grand Boulevard in Ile Perrot in May 2019 and the subsequent transformation of the location into a state-of-the art full-service veterinary hospital. A page is turned in the history of Hôpital Veterinaire de l’Ile Perrot as we embark on a new adventure in our cutting-edge location. A breath of fresh air for this local business that has the wind in its sails!

Dr. Maude Lebeau

Dr. Maude Lebeau graduated from the Faculty of Veterinary Medecine in St-Hyacinthe (University of Montreal) in 1994 (Doctorate in Veterinary Medecine). Dr. Lebeau completed another year of intensive internship in small animal medicine and surgery, receiving her diploma in 1995 (IPSAV). Dr. Lebeau practiced in small animal medicine in a variety of private clinics, including the emergency medicine department at Centre DMV in Ville St-Laurent. During 14 years of practice, Dr. Lebeau devoted herself professionally to a veterinary clinic in the Montreal area well-known for its care of exotic animals. She was co-owner there for 9 years. Dr. Lebeau developed a rich and diverse expertise in exotic species (birds, rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, chinchillas, small rodents, reptiles and hedgehogs), her true passion. Dr. Lebeau completed further training in the field of avian and exotic animal medicine and surgery in the United States.

In the past few years, Dr Lebeau has developed an expertise in the resolution of behaviour problems in dogs, cats and birds. As well as participating in many training sessions with behaviour specialists, Dr Lebeau offers workshops and conferences in local schools and daycares and writes articles in local media on the subjects of veterinary medicine, prevention of dog bites in children, and the prevention of disease in companion animals.
Dr. Lebeau experienced her greatest challenge in 2019/2020 as manager of Hôpital Vétérinaire de l’Ile Perrot with the planning and preparation of the enormous construction project at 400 Grand Boulevard, while adhering to the highest quality standards set by the owners, Drs. Gagnon and Lebeau.
It is with great satisfaction that Dr Lebeau sees the realisation of her dream project in the spring of 2020. Multiple veterinary services centralized in a modern, ergonomic design space, with fluidity of workspace for medical staff, and where patient and client comfort are priorities. What a delight for perfectionist Dr. Lebeau, always full of projects and brimming with energy!

Dr. Isabelle Foisy

Dr. Isabelle Foisy obtained her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Montreal in 1993. She immediately left to complete an internship in small animal and exotic medicine and surgery at The Animal Medical Center in New York City. She stayed for an additional year as an internal medicine resident before pursuing her career in private practice. Within state-of-the-art practices, she had the opportunity to utilize the knowledge and skills she had acquired in dentistry, exotic animals, abdominal ultrasound, endoscopy, internal medicine and preventive medicine to best serve all her patients with the dedication and compassion they deserve.

After 21 years in the United States, she is happy to have returned to Quebec. It is with great pleasure that she joins Dr. Gagnon, her former classmate, as part of the team at L’Hôpital Vétérinaire de L’Île-Perrot, in February 2017.

Over the last three years, Dr. Foisy has joined several organizations to offer her services as a volunteer veterinarian.

She has participated in spay and neuter campaigns to help fight the enormous overpopulation problem and improve the well-being of hundreds of cats and dogs.

She contributed to the evaluation and preventive treatments for a large exotic animal collection at a wildlife sanctuary.

Her work at a non-for-profit clinic has enabled her to sharpen her knowledge of tropical diseases, which are emerging in Quebec, especially those carried by ticks.

She wishes to dedicate as much time as possible to these types projects that she values deeply.

Dr. Evgeniya Marinova

Dr. Marinova began her journey in Veterinary Medicine by obtaining her doctorate degree in 1999 in Bulgaria, where she worked at building her practice for 5 years.
