Dr. Aline Sevigny - Veterinarian


Dr. Aline Sevigny is a French Canadian and studied veterinary medicine in Quebec at Universite de Montreal, graduating in 2002.

On the weekend after graduation, she and her three cats drove down to Newport News... in a hurry to get to a warmer climate! Her family includes 6 cats. Puce is the oldest, an all-black, very petite, grouchy female. Guizmo is second in line, all white. They both "speak" fluent French and English. The four others are from Hampton Roads. Joey was found on the side of the road after being thrown out of a moving car. He spends his days slapping the fish tanks in order to catch his dinner - he's a great cat but a terrible fisherman. When Lichee was born her third eyelids never came down so she was blind. After corrective surgery, she now has 60% vision and is a cuddle bug! Winston, named after John Winston Lennon, is a yellow tabby who thinks he is a dog! The newest cat, Marylin, was named since she has a tiny black dot on her lip. The canaries, Yesterday and Strawberry Fields Forever, and two large fish tanks complete her household.

Prior to working at Acredale, Dr. Sevigny was at a Banfield and VCA practice, and a relief veterinarian at the Norfolk and Virginia Beach SPCA.
