Dr. Caitlin Grant, BSc, DVM, DVSc, ECVCN Resident
Dr. Caitlin Grant is originally from Markham, Ontario and completed her undergraduate degree in animal biology earning a BSc at the University of Guelph. She then attended the Ontario Veterinary College and graduated with honors in 2014. After graduation, Dr. Grant became an associate veterinarian in a private, mixed animal practice in Woodstock, Ontario working with mostly canine, feline and bovine patients. Dr. Grant thoroughly enjoyed her time in private practice, especially the daily interaction with clients and their pets, as well as the opportunity to strengthen the veterinary-client relationship. Dr. Grant had an interest in nutrition before she became a veterinarian, and this interest grew during her three years in private practice. Nutrition plays a vital role in the health and well-being of animals and this was seen daily in appointments with small animals as well as on the farm with food production animals. Dr. Grant made the decision to return to the Ontario Veterinary College and is now completing a DVSc degree and is a third year Resident of the European College of Veterinary and Comparative Nutrition (ECVCN). She is spending her time helping to run the Clinical Nutrition service at the Ontario Veterinary College and is conducting research in the field of companion animal nutrition, specifically looking at intake of essential nutrients in obese cats that are energy restricted for weight loss.
