Dr. Dave S. Bonab
Hi everybody, pleased to meet you all! I am delighted to see my years of love and passion in the field of Veterinary Medicine finally bringing me to establish Unionville South Pet Hospital.
Being a veterinarian in Markham is a genuine thrill! I had fallen in love with Markham and Unionville long ago and it feels so good to be here and help our neighborhood with our veterinary services, while being a resident of Unionville as well!
From my very early childhood I have always been with animals, from having bunnies, fish, cats, dogs, to horses. I started developing a deep passion and genuine respect for animals when I got involved in riding. Then I further developed a deeper understanding of animals from a totally different window during the years of my studies. This was the point where I saw myself as a future veterinarian.
After my graduation from veterinary school, I gathered valuable medical and people relations experience that helped me deeply understand the expectations of my clients when they need help for their pets. In the meantime, while being a veterinarian, my natural attraction to science and medicine/surgery got me involved in a large-scale research project on a very specific artificial human knee implant. This study was done by the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing of the University of Dundee, Scotland. It was an incredible learning and work experience for me and helped me expand my academic network and strengthen my scientific approach to my veterinary patients.
I had the privilege of learning at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, as well, while working with so many incredible professionals and academics in different departments at OVC through VSTEP.
I am a proud member of the College of Veterinarians of Ontario as well as the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association. My special areas of interest are veterinary dermatology, neurology, surgery and dentistry. I would be delighted to have the opportunity to meet our clients in person, and become a part of the community as one of your great veterinarians in Markham, Ontario and Unionville, Ontario. I will do my absolute best to see the veterinary community in our neighborhood thrive with the excellent care that I am sure we will bring to our large family in Markham!
