What dog loves going to the vet? Ours! They are so excited to see Dr. Buxton that they will let her do any procedure without fuss: Her care and affection for them is obvious.
Dr. Buxton never tells us what we must do for our dogs but provides information, conveys what she would do and why, and then respects our decision. This consultative approach extends to their diet and given we have a picky eater with allergies, it has been extremely helpful. Not only do the pups love her, but so do we. “

Dr Buxton has been our family vet for over 25 years. Her commitment to her patients and their families is amazing. Her dedication to her profession is exemplified in her constant development of skills and knowledge regarding new techniques, tips and trends in dog care. Dr Buxton is a talented surgeon and I would not take my Norwegian elkhounds anywhere else.

My family has been fortunate enough to be long time clients of Dr Buxton, entrusting the care of all our four legged family members to her since we moved from Australia to Canada in 2002. Carolyn is a very skilled, experienced, caring and compassionate veterinarian, a consummate professional, and shows a true passion for what she does. She stays current with veterinary practice advancements, and is thorough, kind, and understanding – always taking the time to inform, and lay out all the diagnostic and treatment options available to our four legged family members when they are clearly not feeling well. She follows up on their treatment, making certain that her patients are responding as expected. She responds to any concerns, and ensures that our pets get the best care available. Her dedication to animal care is also displayed through her long term involvement with the Mexi-Can Vet Project – volunteering both her time and her skills to perform sterilization surgeries, and treat many other seriously ill patients during the 4 day-long free spay and neuter clinics in poor communities in the Jaltemaba Bay area on the west coast of Mexico – a charitable pet-related endeavour. Along with her participation in these free clinics, Carolyn regularly brings some of her Mexi-Can patients back with her to rehome these dogs in Canada. That, from my point of view, speaks volumes about Dr Buxton – her very clear love for what she does so well, and her obvious dedication to her clients and her profession.

Dr. Buxton has been my doggies’ doctor for several years. I have the utmost confidence in her veterinarian skills but, just as important, Dr. Buxton cares for the animals she treats and has terrific empathy for their ‘parents’. I would not hesitate to recommend her.

The best educated and compassionate Veterinarian. I love the fact that my dogs psychological well being is as important as her physical health. The focus is on animal well being not on pushing Vaccines. There is a good balance between western and holistic medicine. There is excellent client support both two legged and four legged.

Of all the Vets I have been to this is the most passionate and caring of them all. In my experience most vets prey on your love for your pet offering up unnecessary tests but the Dr always suggests sound advise to try a more holistic approach first. It’s refreshing to go to a vet who takes the time to talk and answer questions without being rushed. Although maybe not as convenient as a place that you can get in immediately it is worth the wait to have a caring Doctor to look after your animals.

5 stars! The perfect mix between “pet is your son/daughter” and “pet is an animal”. Kindness, compassion, warmth and realism.

I’ve taken my cats and dogs for 15 or more years and am so happy with the excellent care they receive. They get a thumbs up from me!

Only place I could find that was open on good Friday. My puppy needed to see a Dr asap and they got him in quick. Treated him quickly and assured us he would be fine.
