Although Drs. Whiteside and Coombs are now retired (retiring in 2000 and 2010 respectively), Dr. Watson has remained on as the senior veterinarian in the practice, having worked at Eglinton Vet since his graduation from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1984. Dr. Bob’s smile and infectious personality has not changed one bit in the 25+ years that he has worked at Eglinton Vet!
Drs. Bev Bateman and Jen Hodges both began working at the practice as high school students, developing a passion for the profession and eventually attending the Ontario Veterinary College. Both joined the veterinary team immediately upon their graduation from OVC (Dr. Bateman in 2001 and Dr. Hodges in 2006). Most veterinarians do not stay at one clinic for their whole career, and we are proud to have this team which is so dedicated to our practice. Bob, Jen and Bev were joined in the fall of 2017 by Dr. Jessica Grandish, who is a great addition to our team.
Our veterinary team has strong ties to each other, works well together, and compliments each other’s strengths. Together, our goal is to run a caring, professional, high-quality veterinary practice, where we get to know each one of our clients and their pets by name. We are proud of the fact that the clinic continues to be independently owned and operated, as we are now surrounded by corporate veterinary practices which are changing the landscape of veterinary medicine in Toronto.
