Dr. Brown graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1988, grew up on hobby farms outside of Montreal and Ottawa. He credits his parents with his success as a veterinarian. They encouraged him to care for every kind of creature from pigeons to skunks, even turning over a room in their house to a “herd” of guinea pigs. Dr. Brown has a special interest in internal medicine, which he sees as a series of mysteries to be unraveled. He lives with his daughters and a menagerie of pets.
