Dr. Fortier received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Michigan State University in 2016. After graduation, he moved to New York City and has since lived in The Rockaways.
A passionate lifelong learner, Dr. Fortier is committed to constantly expanding his knowledge and skill set to provide the highest quality veterinary care for your loved ones. He has the following certifications:
Certified Veterinary Medical Acupuncturist (cVMA) Dr. Fortier is certified to provide evidence and science-based acupuncture. Instead of following the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) philosophy of modulating qi flow, science-based acupuncture instead focuses on modulating nerve impulses and stimulating the release of pain-killing molecules.
Veterinary Botanical Medicine Consultant (VBMC) – Dr. Fortier has been trained in the evidence and science-based use of herbal supplements. This means that he can help answer questions about the evidence for or against different herbal products, possible herb-drug interactions, and which herbs to avoid in various conditions. While this course provides exposure to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbal medications, Dr. Fortier does not prescribe or support these treatments.
Low Stress Handling® Certified – Silver (LCHC-S) – Dr. Fortier has completed Dr. Sophia Yin’s low-stress handling course, which emphasizes specific hands-on techniques to lower pets’ stress in a veterinary clinic.
Elite Fear Free Certified (Elite FFCP) – Dr. Fortier has reached the highest level of Fear Free certification. Fear Free is a general philosophy of keeping veterinary visits as stress-free as possible for pets.
These advanced skills have helped Dr. Fortier mold All Ears Veterinary into a compassionate clinic that focuses on each patient as a whole being, not just their symptoms. Dr. Fortier is committed to offering all reasonable options for care, ensuring each pet has the least stressful experience possible, and educating pet parents so that they never leave the clinic confused by their loved ones’ diseases or treatment options.
Dr. Barclay was born and raised on the Missouri side of Kansas City, where she gained her appreciation of good barbeque, jazz, community, and the unpretentious. Growing up loving animals, figuring out how things worked, and fixing things that were broken, Dr. Barclay always felt called to combine those traits as a veterinarian helping animals live their best lives. In that pursuit, she attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, going to Louisiana State University for her clinical year. After spending time helping families as a veterinary General Practitioner, she returned to the more formalized world of veterinary education by accepting a Fellowship position with the ASPCA. Dr. Barclay feels that, mirroring the ever-advancing field of veterinary medicine, learning should be life-long, and she loves passing along knowledge by striving to teach in ways that help create understanding. Some of Dr. Barclay’s biggest joys in veterinary medicine are seeing instances of healing be achieved both physically and mentally, leading her to become an Elite Fear Free Certified Practitioner and certified as a Feline Friendly Veterinarian.
