Dr. Enna Hughes
Dr. Enna has wanted to be a veterinarian since she was very young. Enna graduated from the University of Guelph Ontario Veterinary College in 1998. She also has an Honours Bachelor of Science degree with a focus on Nutritional Sciences. Enna feels that continuing education – staying current and new treatments, techniques and developing medicine – is vital to being able to provide appropriate veterinary care. She recognizes the vital part of our hearts that our pets hold and endeavors in all she does to support the special bond we share. Our pets share our homes and their loving companionship makes all our lives fuller, happier and allows us to experience so much more joy. Enna feels that the most important and most wonderful parts of her job are assisting pet parents to understand and support their pets and helping those pets live longer healthier lives.
Dr. Enna is a member and past president of the Toronto Academy of Veterinary Medicine and a member of the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, where she is recognized annually for exceeding the continuing education requirements.

In what little spare time Enna has, she enjoys hiking with her dogs, watercolour painting, reading, and planning activities for her family that will actually get three very different teenagers engaged.
Dr. Kathryn Zelma
Dr. Kathryn received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph in 2013 and went on to graduate as a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine after spending her clinical year at Michigan State University.

Dr. Lauren Kostiner
Dr. Lauren has grown up surrounded by her family pets - she started following her mom in horseback riding when she was only four - developing a sincere love of animals. Lauren had a great experience when she volunteered her time overseas as a medical first responder. As she got older she realized that there was a career custom made for her: in becoming a veterinarian she would be able to combine her love of animals with her interest in medicine. Lauren received her Bachelor of Science degree at Queen’s University in 2011 before pursuing her veterinary degree at Murdoch University in 2015 in Perth Australia. Upon returning home, Dr. Lauren started her career in a mixed animal clinic, treating everything from cats and dogs to pigs, chickens to lemurs and servals! Dr. Kostiner was very happy to be returning to her hometown when she joined our practice as she grew up here in Thornhill. For the last half-decade, Dr. Lauren has been focused on her true love - the cats and dogs that filled her childhood and home with their unconditional love and playful joy. Dr. Lauren’s special interests include dermatology and orthopedics.
Dr. Lauren believes in progressive medicine and is constantly applying and implementing new research and treatment options to best suit the needs of each individual patient. She values open communication and helping to educate pet parents on their animals’ medical conditions and needs in order to provide the best possible care as she recognizes that excellent pet care is a partnership where the pets' parents play the most important role.
Outside of work, Dr. Lauren can be found horseback riding, golfing, or baking. She shares her life with Timtam the papillon, Pekoe the long-haired chihuahua, and Fatso, a tuxedo kitty who more commonly responds to ‘Cookie’ or ‘Foodsies.’ As you can guess from Fatso's name he shares Dr. Lauren's love of food and she understands first hand the struggles pet parents go through trying to keep their pets at a healthy weight.
