Dr. Oats joined the staff of Bramalea Animal Hospital just after graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College, Guelph in May of 1978. He liked the people and pets and place so much that he has been here ever since. He became a partner in the practice in 1985 and the practice owner in 1994.

Animal Care Attendant, Veterinary Technician
Eushauna has been working at Bramalea Animal Hospital since December 2011 as an ACA and, having recently completed her studies at the University of Guelph- Ridgetown Campus, as a Veterinary Technician since September 2013. Her passions include art/animation, web design, reading, writing and theatre. Her one and only fur baby at the moment is a sable merle coloured sheltie named Angel, with future plans to own an ocicat.
Originally from Guyana, she has loved animals ever since the age of 5 and credits movies like The Lion King, Lassie, Air Bud, Babe, and Charlotte's Web (to name only a few) as influencing factors in her decisions to one day become a Veterinary Technician. After moving to Canada at 14, her first steps toward her chosen career path followed. In her spare time she is usually watching one of her multiple television shows, Netflix or a movie with her mom and dad or friends. Writing is yet another hobby of hers—she considers it to be therapeutic, whether it's fantasy-based or a personal reflection.
Eushauna is always ready to greet clients and their four-legged babies with a warm and welcoming smile, as well as her positive energy and personality. Eushauna loves being a part of the Bramalea Animal Hospital team.
