Toronto Beaches Veterinarian
15+ Years Helping Your Beaches Pets
Since 2002, Dr. Mitelman has been caring for pets in the Toronto Beaches community, and helping their families access reliable veterinary services 24/7/365.
Dr. Mitelman discovered what he calls “his calling,” very early on. As a young boy, he was always bringing home stray and injured animals to care for, so it was no surprise to anyone when, during his first week on staff at Kingston Road Animal Hospital, he brought home two orphaned kittens. The once tiny and fragile felines, affectionately named Hansel and Gretel, have each had long and happy lives well into their senior years. Hansel continues to live with Dr. Mitelman today.
His personal interests include raising money for cancer research, a cause that allows him to help others while also giving back to the medical community, and learning foreign languages—as a veterinarian in a multicultural city, he never knows when it may come in handy when treating patients.
Experienced Ultrasound Practitioner, with a special interest in Veterinary Surgery
His love for animals and a passion for veterinary medicine drive him to continually undertake professional development, mastering the skills needed to perform the newest and most advanced surgical procedures.
His surgical and ultrasound skills are in high demand, and when not at Vets Toronto/Kingston Road Animal Hospital, Dr. Mitelman often performs these services at other veterinary hospitals:
