Dr. Matt Shany

Matt has always wanted to work with animals, he started his journey as a teenager at Chinguacousy Animal Farm in Brampton. He was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College in 1995 and graduated in 1999.

He went on and practiced in mixed animals up north in Markdale and Midland area for 2 years, but his heart truly belonged to dogs and cats. Matt went on to work in a small animal practice in Mississauga; but being in love with the Guelph area he really wanted to move his career in this direction.

He does have a very special spot for kittens and being very much a cat lover. Over the years he has rescued a number of stray or injured cats and provided them with a loving home. Currently he has two beautiful Devon Rexes named “Ozzy” and “Kevin” and a handsome French bulldog named “Beau”.
