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 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. Other interests include hiking, nature, environmental conservation, yoga, reading, organic foods and her family. Dr. Robin has four grown children and three grandchildren.

I went to work in Long Term Care right out of college for four and a half years as an Activation Aide. I have always had a huge heart for working with both people and animals and when this opportunity found it’s way to me I knew this was the change I was searching for. 

My husband and I are three years married and two and a half years our first home in Clinton. We are also proud parents to our fur babies Mya- who is our ten year old  English Bulldog and Beagle mix and Harper- who is our seven month old Boxer puppy; we do absolutely everything together and they sure do make our house a home. 

I really enjoy the work I get to do and I love learning knew things every day at the clinic. For those who have not met me yet, I look forward to speaking with you and seeing you at the clinic!

Abby Stevens - Kennel Student

Hey everyone, my name is Abby Stevens. I’m in grade 12 at Central Huron Secondary School. I’ve lived in Clinton my entire life with my parents, older brother and 2 dogs. I also have a miniature horse named Blessing who stays just outside of Seaforth.

I’ve always loved animals but didn’t know how passionate I was about the animal health industry until starting my job at SAH. I’m looking forward to attending Ridgetown College for their veterinary office administration program in the fall of 2022. My plan is to eventually become an equine massage therapist but it’s definitely going to be difficult when I have to leave the veterinary medicine world behind.
