Dr. Mencher, DVM


Dr. Mencher was born in the US but grew up in Halifax. After graduating in 1993 from Tufts veterinary school in Massachusetts he moved out west and worked for 18 years in a mixed animal practice in northwest Washington State. In 2011 he returned to Tufts to pursue a Masters degree in conservation medicine, studying the interactions at the interface of human, animal, and environmental health. For the past 3 years, he has split his time between working as a clinical veterinarian in Halifax and doing conservation and community development work with his wife in Papua Indonesia.

“I'm thrilled to be a part of the talented and caring team here at Spryfield Animal Hospital. It is an honour to be part of an institution with such a long and distinguished legacy serving a diverse clientele of devoted and loving pet owners; I look forward to continuing that legacy into the future.”

In addition, Dr. Mencher is a certified Fear Free™ Professional, working to alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets.
