“After graduating with a PhD in nutrition and toxicology in 2010, I began a journey to fulfill a life-long passion of animal medicine. In 2014, I graduated as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College, having developed a passion for dog sports and rehabilitation medicine a long time before that.
My introduction to rehabilitation medicine came in 2008 when we began a journey to rehab my first sport dog, Mr. Ripley. Rip was a Labrador retriever who needed rehab for arthritis and muscle atrophy. We had maxed out on pain medication and all that was ahead of us was a long slow painful decline. We began rehabbing him at Woodcock Veterinary Services in 2009 and within a few sessions he was stronger and less painful, regaining his lost mobility, dignity, and quality of life. As a dog owner, there is no greater pain than watching the decline of a loved friend and as a veterinarian, there is no greater joy than helping a loved pet regain mobility and reduce pain. Rehabilitation medicine is a powerful adjunct to main stream veterinary medicine.
In the spring of 2014 I began my professional journey with rehabilitation medicine at Woodcock Veterinary Services. In January 2016, I took over from Dr. Woodcock and opened Gilmour Road Veterinary Services. In 2017 I became a Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner through the University of Tennessee.
At GRVS we strive for excellence in rehabilitation medicine. Each year I complete several continuing education courses to ensure that my skills and knowledge remain up to date.
Currently, I have 3 dogs (2 Labradors and a Newfoundland dog). I regularly compete in a variety of dog sports with my Labs while Barclay the Newf enjoys a life of leisure.”
