  • Caitlin Goldhawk, DVM
    Veterinarian / Partner

    Highgate is Dr. Caitlin Goldhawk’s hometown, and she is proud to have grown up in the Chatham-Kent community. She graduated from Ridgetown District High School, and from there she ventured to Guelph for university and earned her DVM at the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College. Dr. Goldhawk says that what impresses her every day is how in-tune owners are with their pets. Owners know their pets like their children and are amazing at detecting subtle changes when a pet is not well. She believes the most important part of her job is to help heal those who cannot speak for themselves. Dr. Goldhawk is happily married to her husband, Dylan, and her best “fur” friend and side-kick is their rambunctious border collie named Howard. Scarlett and Conrad are her two children who keep her busy with many funny and exciting moments!
