Hello everyone. thanks for reading my bio.
It’s hard to believe that it was 25 years ago that I graduated as a veterinarian from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph.
Since I was a small boy I had a fascination with animals. I was always trying to convince my parents to accept a new pet that I had taken in or somebody was trying to give away. My collection of pets ranged from a chicken to a budgie, to a turtle, and of course a cat and a dog.
For the first few years of my career I worked in a mixed practice in Alliston Ontario. My patients included cows, horses, pigs, yaks as well as dogs, cats and exotic pets.
After 7 years of honing my skills I opened my own Veterinary Clinic. Dundas Euclid Animal Hospital in Toronto’s West End. It grew very quickly and over the next few years my team and I opened 3 more animal hospitals in the downtown area. Kingston Road Animal Hospital is our 5th clinic in our group of clinics.
Being a veterinarian has been a wonderful career and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I particularly enjoy mentoring younger colleagues and students who have an interest in veterinary medicine.
On the personal side, I’ve been married to my wonderful wife Brigida Fortuna for 25 year and we have four great sons. We enjoy camping, bike riding, movies ,downtown living, and our little hobby farm back in Alliston where my career began.
