Dr. Robert W Smith, MSc, DVM

Veterinarian

Animals, large or small, gravitate to Dr. Smith; they intuitively sense that he likes and cares about them.  Dogs often run into the exam room to see him and grumpy cats will be purring by the end of an appointment.

Bob was raised in a rural community on the Bruce Peninsula and after high school attended the University of Western Ontario where he obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Pharmacology.  He continued his studies at Western earning a Master of Science degree in Pharmacology.  Armed with his new degree he entered the pharmaceutical industry but rapidly realized that it would not provide a fulfilling career.  So Bob returned to school to become a veterinarian, graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1983.  He  then joined Dr. Horner at South Peel and never left.

In the years since his graduation, veterinary medicine has evolved tremendously and Dr. Smith enjoys keeping up with these changes.  Having studied pharmacology at a graduate level he is particularly interested in the medicine side of practice including selecting the safest vaccines, and the most effective drugs for use within the practice.  He has a special interest in pain management.

Bob is married to Patricia and they have two children and two dogs. Aaron is a commercial pilot while Alison has recently graduated from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Jenny and Mars are their two exuberant golden retrievers.

Dr. Elaine K Williams, DVM, MRCVS

Veterinarian

As a child Dr. Williams could easily be described as a barn brat.  Horses were her passion and she was convinced that she would become an equine veterinarian.  But fate intervened when she joined South Peel as a kennel attendant during her high school years.  She fell in love with small animals and from that time knew that dogs, cats and other small mammals were her calling.

Elaine is a native of Mississauga. As a student in Mississauga she loved science and so headed off to the University of Guelph where she completed two years in Animal Biology prior to being admitted to the Ontario Veterinary College. She graduated from OVC in 2009, receiving the award for the top student in ophthalmology. Elaine practised in Toronto and Clappison’s Corners prior to moving to London, England where she has practised for two years prior to returning to Canada and South Peel.

Dr. Williams enjoys working with all small animals.  While in London she developed an interest in rabbits and other small mammals and she brings this experience to South Peel.  She likes the variety and extra challenges that treating exotics give.  She also enjoys soft tissue surgery and ophthalmology.  Dentistry is an area of special interest to her because, as she says, the results of dentistry are very rewarding.  Seeing the pain and other problems associated with dental disease disappear after dental work is completed is particularly gratifying for Dr. Williams.

Elaine and her husband, Dave, a chartered accountant, share their home with two cats and a dog.  Kiara and Chase were both strays who found a home with Elaine, and Brigadier, a golden retriever cross, was adopted by Elaine when he became ill and his original owners could no longer care for him.  Elaine enjoys jumping and trail-riding with her quarter horse, Jake.  In addition to her joy of riding, Elaine likes to participate in ballroom and Latin dancing.  Travel is a passion of hers and visiting Australia and New Zealand are part of her future plans.

Dr. Grace V Jutras, BSc, DVM

Veterinarian

Dr. Jutras also graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College.  Prior to joining South Peel she practised in Pickering and Scarborough.

Grace enjoys interacting with both pets and clients as well as performing surgery.

Grace has always had a love of animals.  Currently she raises service dog puppies until they are ready to enter their training programme.
