Our Veterinarians:

 

Dr. Kathleen Day Dunbar

Dr. Kathleen began her career in veterinary medicine in 1992 after graduating from the former Centralia College of Agriculture Technology, in Huron Park Ontario with a diploma in Veterinary Technology.  She worked as an RVT in a large mixed animal practice in Cambridge Ontario until 1996 when she continued her studies at the University of Guelph.  After graduating with her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2003, Dr. Kathleen joined a mixed animal practice in Blyth, Ontario.  Although she enjoyed working with farm animals, Dr. Kathleen soon decided to concentrate on companion animal medicine and surgery.  She became the proud owner of Seaforth Animal Hospital in 2008.  Dr. Kathleen participates in regular veterinary continuing education in order to stay current and bring you the best healthcare recommendations for your furry family members!

Dr. Kathleen grew up on a farm in Wellington County. It was the site of the International Plowing Match in 2000 and her brother continues to operate the farm business.  Dr. Kathleen lives near Seaforth with her husband Tom, son and various dogs, cats, horses and other critters.

Dr Robin

Dr. Robin Wiley

Dr. Robin graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1981 and moved to Huron County in 1982 with her husband, Peter, who is also a veterinarian. She practiced in Clinton until 2018 and since then has practiced in both Huron and Perth Counties as a locum veterinarian for several area practices.  Robin is excited to now be working with the dynamic team of Seaforth Animal Hospital. As long as she can remember, Dr. Robin wanted to be a veterinarian as it combines her love of working with both animals and people in a medical setting. She believes strongly in the human-animal bond and its capacity to improve the health and lives of both animals and people. Dr. Robin has a passion for lifelong learning and engages in extensive continuing education activities including courses in Fear-Free Pets certification, veterinary behavioural medicine and animal assisted therapy. She is a member of numerous professional organizations including the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners, the Human Animal Bond Association and the Canadian Academy of Veterinary Dermatology.

Diana Bos

Reception/Assistant

Hello, my name is Diana and I am the proud Mom to two beautiful teen daughters named Sophia and Stella and have a handsome husband named Ken. I enjoy reading, camping and walking my two dogs, a Newfoundland, "Mahoney" and a long hair Chihuahua, "Chewy". I have experience in working in both a large and small animal practice but am happy to be back focusing on small animal patients. My favourite part of the job is assisting with appointments and working the front end. I also enjoy the neonatal part of C-sections and whelping puppies having prior worked at a breeding facility. I look forward to meeting more of the great clients that come to the Seaforth Animal Hospital.
