Dr. Susan Kilborn received her DVM degree from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. After 4 years of emergency and critical care practice in Winnipeg, she entered the DVSc program at the Ontario Veterinary College. She completed the DVSc program in Internal Medicine in 1993, and became board certified in the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in 1995. After moving to Ottawa in 1993, Dr. Kilborn began receiving referral cases in medicine, initially with Alta Vista Animal Hospital, then through her self-owned Veterinary Internal Medicine Service (VIMS). She has a keen interest in nutrition and currently consults for Medi-cal / Royal Canin Veterinary Diets several days a week. She has become passionate about community involvement over time, and has worked with the CVMA (was local chair for the CVMA conference in 2007 in Ottawa), does continuing education planning for Eastern Ontario, and has been involved with fund raising for the Ottawa Humane Society’s wonderful new building. Dr. Kilborn is also Mom to 10 year old Anna, and enjoys spending time with her family every chance she gets.
