Dr. Heather Boots, DVM


As a child, I was always trying to “treat” the family pets for various made-up ailments, and so it only seemed fitting that I would go on to become a veterinarian. After completing a BSc in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Guelph I went on to complete the DVM program at the Ontario Veterinary College and graduated in 2017.

I joined the team at College Manor Veterinary Hospital in 2017 and I could not imagine a better group of people to work with. The entire team at College Manor consistently go above and beyond to help all the pets that walk through the door, and I am thrilled to be a part of the team.

I have a keen interest in preventative and geriatric medicine. I love that veterinary medicine allows me to work with various amazing pets every day, while also allowing me to help improve their quality of life at the same time.

I love the way that the entire team at College Manor always works together to make sure that our animal patients are taken care of to the best of our ability.

When I am not in the hospital you can find me outside running, hiking with my 2 dogs, or up North at the family cottage. My first pet was a Black Labrador named Coal. She was one of the best dogs I have ever met and is a big part of the reason why I am a veterinarian today.
