Dr. Ashish Prajapati, D.V.M. Veterinarian
Dr. Prajapati dreamed to be a doctor at a very young age. He grew up in a pet loving family. In 1989 he graduated with his veterinary degree and he started practicing as veterinarian in India. He got his Masters degree in veterinary surgery and continued his experience in different part of Gujarat, India. In 2005 he came to Canada where he has been helping to heal his furry friends ever since. For several years he worked in Greater Toronto Area before starting his own practice in Durham Region in 2010. He became new owner of North Wellington Animal Hospital in 2018. Having pets of his own allows him to understand how easily a pet becomes a special member of the family. He also recognizes that you need a veterinarian who will listen, and someone you can trust when making important medical decisions. He honours the Veterinarian’s Oath and treats each patient with kindness and compassion. His favourite part of the job is being an advocate for the creatures that cannot speak for themselves.
Dr. Prajapati has a special interest in preventive medicine, pain relief management, and surgery. He believes that awareness and prevention are the first steps to ensuring a long and happy life for his patients. He also feels that since pets are often unable to tell us when it hurts, it is his role to ensure he can provide as much comfort as possible. Pain control is tailored to each surgical patient.
Dr. Prajapati likes to keep current with the latest information in the field of veterinary medicine and he regularly attends continuing education courses. He also treasures the opportunity to spend time with his family, and enjoys hiking, canoeing, camping and biking.
