Dr. Monica Dawson

Lead Veterinarian

I joined Coxwell Animal Clinic as an associate veterinarian after graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2014. My journey into the veterinary field began in Thailand, working with rescued wildlife (primarily primates) through enrichment and rehabilitation. The plight of these innocent creatures pulled at my heartstrings and inspired me to further my education and dedicate my life to veterinary medicine. My special interests include pain management, nutrition (especially feline), dentistry and surgery. I am lucky to have found a second family at Coxwell A.C. where the team works hard and always puts a smile on my face.

At home, I have a very supportive husband and two wildly adventurous boys. We enjoy spending our time outdoors- hiking, biking, camping and of course the boy’s favourite game “hide and go seek”! Our family recently had to say goodbye to our first love Jackson (the Jack Russell Terrier) whose collar will be hard to fill.
