Meet Our Team

Arik Vishnevsky

DVM, Owner

My name is Arik Vishnevsky and I am both the owner and practicing veterinarian at Central Vaughan Animal Hospital. Since graduating from the The Ontario Veterinary College , I have worked in two large scale 24/7 animal hospitals in the GTA. During this time, I gained tremendous amount of veterinary experience including managing intensive care patients, carrying out complex surgeries, performing dental treatments, and mentoring both veterinary students and veterinary technicians.

I am passionate about my profession and strive to establish a strong rapport with clients. I am a keen believer in collaborating with clients in making decisions that will benefit their pet and align with their lifestyle.

I feel privileged to have the opportunity to practice in this wonderful community of Thornhill, which I call home. I can also provide services in Russian and Hebrew.
In my spare time , I enjoy spending time with my wife , our two young children, and our mini poodle Charlie.

Please feel free to stop by anytime with your little critter to say hello and check us out! We love visitors.

I look forward to be taking care of your pet,

Dr. Arik Vishnevsky



My name is Sarah and I am the Registered Veterinary Technician here at Central Vaughan Animal Hospital. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for animals and knew I wanted to work in the veterinary industry. I graduated from the veterinary technician program at Georgian College and obtained my RVT status shortly after. Some of my hobbies include baking, decorating sugar cookies, and cross stitching. I also have a cockapoo named Riley! I am looking forward to meeting all the animals and their parents!
