About Calgary Family Vet

Simply put, Dr. Yolanda Lopez created Calgary Family Veterinarian house call services to offer clients a more personalized approach when providing care for their animals from the comfort of their own homes. After working in the industry for more than ten years, she wanted to bring the best of what she learned from both worlds to her clients in both rural and city practices.

By being able to provide veterinary medicine in a one-on-one family-style experience, we hope to foster flexibility, open communication, transparency, and a collaborative work environment that will allow for the best possible outcome for our patients.

Calgary Family Vet provides options that are best for the patient while considering the needs of the client within the standards of excellence expected of veterinary medicine.

Meet Our Team

Dr. Yolanda Lopez

Hi! My name is Yolanda. From a very young age, I knew I wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always dreamed of helping animals and their humans. 

I have been practising veterinary medicine in Canada since 2011. However, I am originally from Caracas, Venezuela, and now call Calgary home.

I share my life with my partner Rob, our two dogs, and two cats. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, swimming, dancing, and watching television.

I would love to be your family veterinarian. Just ask!

Emilio Martin

In the words of Dr. Lopez,

Emilio started in Calgary Family Vet as a client, he has a gorgeous French bulldog named Matteo and in March 2022, he became our Client Care Coordinator.

He handles most of the client communication, scheduling, inventory management and administrative tasks.

He has a background in healthcare, and is smart, caring, compassionate and a real problem solver. We’re thrilled to have him on our team.

His contribution to our very small operation has been invaluable. He allows me to focus on my patient’s medical needs and our clients love him!

I hope you get to interact with him soon and see what I mean!
