Dr. Dirk deGraaf
Dirk decided to enter veterinary medicine during the 1980’s after a 12 year career as a biologist which took him all over Canada. He completed his veterinary education at the Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island, and joined Nanton Veterinary Clinic in 1991. He has been co-owner since 1993. He enjoys the diversity of mixed animal practice and has special interests in surgery (including orthopedics) and small animal dentistry. Another special interest is dealing with emergency and trauma cases including dealing with injured wildlife; he provides first treatment to several hawks and owls every year before sending them on to rehabilitation.
