Dr. Mat grew up in Oakville, Ontario attending local schools in the area throughout his childhood. He began working at the Animal Hospital of Oakville at 12 years old where he would assist with walking and caring for our boarding patients. Mat grew up with several family pets and knew at a young age he wanted to be a veterinarian. He holds a HBsc from the University of Guelph in biomedical sciences and a veterinary degree from the University College Dublin. When not at work, Mat enjoys spending time with his family, hanging out with his friends in the GTA, and going up north in the summers.
