This is the DVSC team.

Eamon
Eamon
Eamon had always wanted to be a vet, ever since reading the James Herriott books as a child. He graduated in 1992 from the University of Liverpool, England and worked in several different types of veterinary practice in the UK. These included farm animal practice, referral practice, charity and hospital practices.

In 2001 he received his post graduate Certificate in Small Animal Surgery from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in London. Since then he has worked in a referral role in both the UK and Canada. He is trained in the Slocum TPLO, Kyon TTA and CBLO techniques for cruciate ligament repair. Since moving to Canada he has run a small animal surgical referral practice in Halifax. He is a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in London, UK, and a member of the British Veterinary Orthopedic Association.

His areas of interest include fracture and cruciate ligament repair, wound reconstruction surgery, minimally invasive surgery and arthroscopy and soft tissue surgery. He is also interested in joint resurfacing techniques.

Outside of work his time is spent with his wife Hannah, children Joseph and Niamh and their dog Scout. He has recently been awarded his Black Belt in Shotokan karate.

Kelsey grew up on a farm in New Brunswick, but then moved to British Columbia where she found her passion for orthopaedics during her studies of physical anthropology at the University of Victoria. After graduating from a veterinary technology program in December 2017, she combined both her love for animals and passion for orthopaedics, making joining the Draper Veterinary Services team a no brainer.

Scout

Scout is our loveable rogue of a dog. She is based on Dr. Draper’s dog of the same name. Like the character in “To Kill a Mockingbird” she is a bit of a Tomboy.
