  • 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.
