Dr. Gillian Davidson, DVM
Dr. Gillian Davidson has always been interested in the dairy industry, having milked at dairy farms in Perth County and participated in 4H since she was a teenager. She attended the University of Guelph for her undergraduate degree in biological sciences and was able to work at the University of Guelph Ponsonby Dairy Research Center during the summers. She attended the Ontario Veterinary College and graduated in 2016. After graduation, Dr. Gillian began working in a mixed animal practice in Bruce County. Dr. Gillian enjoyed working with animals of all sizes, but jumped at the opportunity to work at the Kirkton Veterinary Clinic in January of 2017, allowing her to focus on bovine medicine. During vet school, she was able to participate in a research study evaluating milking routine timing and hygiene on dairy farms across Ontario, and has now developed a strong interest in the area. When she is not working with cows, Dr. Gillian also enjoys small animal, small ruminant, and pot belly pig work. Outside of work, she enjoys playing hockey, soccer, and painting.
