Our Chatham Staff

Dr. Walker and the Chatham team create lasting relationships with pet owners and work with you to maintain the health of your pets.

  • Ingrid Walker, BA, BSc, DVM
    Veterinarian / Partner

    Dr. Ingrid Walker grew up in Nova Scotia and earned her DVM degree from the Atlantic Veterinary College in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Today, she feels completely at home here in Chatham-Kent, because the people remind her of those in Eastern Canada—relaxed, kind, and comfortable in the knowledge that they live in such a safe community. Dr. Walker has been a vet for over 10 years and has never lost her deep love for animals. While Dr. Walker’s “home family” consists of her husband, Kevin, and children, Ella and Adam, her “work family” is also important to her. Dr. Walker notes that the staff consists of amazing people with a great depth of knowledge and big hearts. Her colleagues are truly her extended family, and she loves them almost as much as the animals she treats.

  • Emily Durbin, BSc, DVM
    Veterinarian / Partner

    Born in Guelph, Dr. Emily Durbin and her family moved when she was young to Saskatchewan, where she grew up and earned her degrees at the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. What Dr. Durbin loves the most about being a vet is that she gets to provide the same kind of health care available to people—but to pets. After all, as Dr. Durbin tells her sons, pets make our lives better, and it is a privilege to be able to look after them. She believes that listening closely to the pet owner’s concerns and a thorough physical examination are the most important diagnostic tests a vet can do. In her spare time, Dr. Durbin serves on the executive of the Women’s Leadership Council and is the Veterinarian for the Board of Directors for Autism Dog Services.

  • Amanda Estabrooks, DVM

    Dr. Amanda Estabrooks was born and raised in Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia. She moved to Chatham after graduating from the Atlantic Veterinary College in 2008 and has been working with the Chatham-Kent Veterinary Team ever since. Dr. Estabrooks, of course, has several “fur kids,” including two cats (Monty and Snuggles) and one lovable Jack Russell named Benny. She volunteers every year with events such as the OSPCA Walk-a-thon, Soiree for Strays Fundraiser and Mud Creek Pet Memorial Tree Planting, for which she taps into her creative side by making pages for the Mud Creek Memorial scrapbook. Dr. Estabrooks loves all aspects of veterinary medicine but particularly enjoys surgery and post-operative care/rehabilitation. She knows how strong the human-animal bond can be and strives to help owners make educated and informed decisions regarding the healthcare of their furry family members. In her spare time, Dr. Estabrooks enjoys hiking with Benny, reading, and travelling.
