Magali Lequient, DVM

Dr. Lequient was raised in French speaking Quebec, Canada, and graduated from the University of Montreal Veterinary Medicine Faculty in 1997. She worked in a mixed animal practice until going on a road trip in 2000 in search of the best rock climbing, mountain biking, and skiing to be found in North America. She landed in Utah, where she fell in love with all that the state has to offer. Dr. L (because people have a hard time with her last name) worked at University Veterinary Hospital and Diagnostic Center in Salt Lake City until October of 2011. She really enjoys communicating with pet owners and helping them take care of their companions’ precious health. Her special interests include internal medicine, soft tissue surgery, pain management, dental care, and senior care. She has had the chance to experience first-hand the wonders of what veterinary medicine can do to help aging pets maintain a good quality of life regardless of what ailments affect them, and the increased happiness that ensues for all.
Dr Lequient lives in Summit Park with her husband Brad. They spend most of their free time caring for their 3 furry kids: Millie; a now over 16 years-old but still incredibly active rescued Golden Retriever who is so happy to have found a wonderful forever-family, Azrael; a very vocal and cuddly old grey tabby, and Seven; a (slightly) chubby brown tabby who spent 5 years at Best Friends patiently waiting for the perfect family. When they are not being human slaves to their pets, you will find them rock climbing all over Utah and the surrounding states. Magali stills mourns West, her wonderful Golden/Labrador, who spent fifteen years teaching Magali to be a better veterinarian and a better human.
