Dr. Scott Bainbridge HBSc, DVM, Owner

Dr. Scott Bainbridge has lived in the High Park/Roncesvalles Village area since 1999 with his wife and son. His pets include Cleo; a recent Golden Retriever rescue from Egypt and their cat Stilton, adopted in 2014 and affectionately referred to as 'the disgruntled hotel guest'.

Scott has an Honours Bachelor of Science from the University of Toronto in Animal Behaviour. He spent a year in the pre-veterinary course at Colorado State University and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1999. Scott made the Dean’s Honour Roll each year at the O.V.C. and was the recipient of both the Merck Veterinary Award and the American Animal Hospital Senior Student Award.

Scott spends a majority of his free time in Latin America where he is heavily involved in an ongoing pet sterilization program that encourages other veterinarians from around the world to volunteer their services. He also sits on the Board of Golden Rescue, one of the country's largest single breed rescues. Golden Rescue has been responsible for importing over 4,000 homeless international golden retrievers to their forever homes here in Canada. 

Recently, Scott was honoured with the OVMA Award of Merit for his exemplary public service and contributions to the veterinary profession. From establishing a veterinary camp for kids in Australia to providing free medical care for pets of women who have left abusive households, he has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to helping others and improving the lives of animals.

In his spare time, Scott loves to travel, play golf, and spend time at his cottage.
