Re: Best Wishes to Dr. Loretta Yuen – May 2023

Change is inevitable. After over two decades we are sad to say good bye to Dr. Loretta Yuen who will be leaving our team mid May. It’s been a wonderful time and we wish her all the best in the future!

To My Dear Clients,

I am writing this letter to let you know that my last day at Amherst will be Thursday, May 18th. I write this with a mixture of sadness and excitement. It is a time in my life that I embark on a new challenge and direction in my career but words do not express how much I will miss everyone at Amherst as this has been my extended family for 23 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you, your families and your pets throughout these years. Thank you for entrusting me with the care of your 4-legged family members.

I will never forget all the meaningful relationships I have made here.

I wish you all the best and hope our paths cross again in the future.

Dr. Loretta Yuen

Re: Fond Farewell to Dr. Cheryl Kong – April 2023

It is bittersweet that we announce the departure of Dr. Cheryl Kong from the Amherst team.

Dr. Kong has been part of the Amherst family for over six years now and we will miss her tremendously. She is such a lovely person and an amazing veterinarian. We wish her the best of luck in the future.

To my amazing clients,

It is with a heavy heart that I, Dr. Cheryl Kong, announce my departure from Amherst Veterinary Hospital. My last day will be April 15th 2023. Amherst has been my home for the past six years, and I am very grateful to Dr. Cumberbirch, the incredible Amherst team, all of my wonderful furry patients, and of course all of you. I have enjoyed my time at Amherst immensely and will miss everyone very much.

Thank you for entrusting your pets to my care over the years.


Dr. Cheryl Kong
