Dr. Elaine K Williams, DVM, MRCVS
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.
