Paws n' Pounds Plan - Stakeholders


The Paws n' Pounds Plan was created in collaboration between the University of Alberta Human-Animal-Bond research group and Dr. Michael Kolla at Westbrook Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Kolla graduated from the University of Saskatchewan's Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1979. He joined Westbrook a few years later, and became the proud owner in 1993. Dr. Kolla's dedication is evident in his lasting relationships with countless Westbrook clients and their families.
