DR ARMSTRONG IS RETIRING AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER 2017
"It is with mixed emotions that I announce my retirement from Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital after 30 years. I have sold my shares in the practice and as of the end of September 2017; I will no longer be a full time member of the Scottsdale team. I look forward to entering my "semi retirement" as a locum or relief veterinarian for Scottsdale Veterinary Hospital and other well-respected hospitals in British Columbia. I hope to continue a part time career as a veterinarian, ski instructor (now 18 seasons with Whistler/Blackcomb), as well as, continue to serve my profession as a councillor of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and director of the Society of British Columbia Veterinarians."
