Dr. Claire Beauchamp

Dr. Claire Beauchamp grew up in Burlington, Ontario, and being true to her inner nerd, graduated with a BSc in molecular biology and genetics from the University of Guelph in 2002. After some soul-searching and a life-changing job as an ACA / receptionist at a small animal practice in Burlington, she decided to apply to the Ontario Veterinary College and graduated in 2007 (yay Golden Grizzlies). After graduation, Claire pursued a rotating small animal internship in Ohio. There, Dr. Beauchamp fell in love with emergency medicine and critical care and opted to stay in Ohio to continue her development in this area.


In 2010 she returned to Ontario, following her passion for emergency medicine and critical care. After more than five years of ER overnights, weekends, and holidays, Claire decided it was time to transition to family practice and found a home at a small animal hospital where she met Dr. Donna Chui and Dr. Larry Tung. Through their shared values of compassionate care, fierce dedication to never stop learning, and a wicked sense of humour, they came together to found Yonge Sheppard Animal Hospital in the summer of 2016.


Claire has two amazing cats at home. Channy, a Ragdoll pirate that is now 19 years old and Roger, AKA the fat man, AKA Monsieur Rogère, AKA Raj who is 16 years young. Claire’s dream is to someday own a small farm where she can have one of all of the pets to love and hold and squish. Until then her patients are her surrogate pets to squish and love and sing to.
