CWHC Ontario/Nunavut welcomes their new pathologist
The Ontario/Nunavut region of the CWHC is excited to welcome our new wildlife pathologist, Dr. Brian Stevens.
Brian is originally from Toronto and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2007. He worked as a small animal practitioner for 3 years before returning to OVC for an anatomic pathology residence. Following his residency he worked as the senior resident in the department of Pathobiology and assisted in the training of anatomic pathology residents and final year veterinary students. He then accepted a position as a veterinary pathologist at the University of New Hampshire/New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Lab. At this position he began his career in wildlife pathology working on diagnostic wildlife cases as well as on multiple research projects including the Vermont moose project, a mass mortality event affecting Northern Gannets and Shearwaters, an investigation into canine distemper virus in fishers and other mesocarnivores, and an investigation into the natural diseases of Canada Lynx in Maine.
Brian looks forward to continuing collaborations in wildlife research projects and is excited to return to Guelph. In his spare time, Brian enjoys playing softball in the summer, running on trails in the region, and spending time with his two young daughters (aged 2 and 4) who keep him plenty busy most days.
