Dr. Dave Heaton graduated from the Ontario Veterinary college in 1989 and has been practicing small animal medicine ever since then.
He and his wife (Dr. Robbie Heather, also a veterinarian at the clinic) started Three Islands Veterinary Services in Bobcaygeon in 1991.
They have 3 children. Samantha, the eldest, is now at Guelph University but "not to be a vet" she says with just a little too much emphasis. Eric is soon to finish high school and says he would like to be a vet one day and perhaps practice in Bobcaygeon. Sarah will be in high school shortly and is not sure of her future plans.
Dr. Dave and family have lived in Bobcaygeon for 17 years and have 2 great dogs (Maggie and Ty) and 2 cats (Salem and Smuckers).
Dave's special outside interests include long distance cycling, hockey, badminton and canoeing.
At the clinic he enjoys office appointments with clients and pets but especially enjoys all types of surgery and he has had a special interest in dog and cat dentistry for many years.
