Dr. Donais graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in 1994. Early in his career, he took a leadership role in the operations of his first job in Wallaceburg, a very busy part of a group of hospitals in the Chatham area. During this time, he developed a keen interest in avian and exotic animal medicine and surgery.
After a short time in a small animal practice just outside Sudbury, Ontario, Dr. Donais moved to the Newmarket area to open the College Manor Veterinary Hospital with Dr. Bruch in June of 1999. Dr. Donais is a member of the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO), the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) and the Toronto Academy of Veterinary Medicine (TAVM).
Dr. Donais is a converted fitness enthusiast and enjoys hitting the gym and has completed several half-marathons. He is an avid fisherman and enjoys boating and “cottaging”. Currently, he shares his home with a tank full of tropical fish and a very spunky cat named “Kingston”.
I am very proud of the professional, caring and cohesive team we have at the CMVH. We all work well together to bring the very best level of health care to our patients and their families. A true commitment to continuing education ensures that our entire team continues to strive to be the at what we do.
I truly love the variety that veterinary medicine provides. No two days are exactly alike!
I really enjoy nature and wildlife photography. Travelling South in the winter is a real favourite!
Do you know the most common disease in dogs and cats? It is not liver or kidney disease, or even thyroid disease. It is dental disease! Did you know that dental disease affects over 80% of dogs over the age of 3 years, and between 50-90% of cats over 4 years?
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 905.853.4706. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Note: Due to the continued health precautions recommended by Health Canada, we have elected to discontinue 'in clinic' pick-ups for items ordered via our Online Store including both medications and food with immediate effect. The delivery option is extremely flexible and they will deliver wherever you choose.
3. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours:
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 am - 7:00 pm Friday: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm Saturday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm Sunday: CLOSED
