    Dr. Richard Benjamin

    Dr. Richard Benjamin grew up in the sunny isle of the Caribbean with a true passion for pets.  After his graduation in 1998, he started teaching veterinary students large animal medicine and surgery, while running his own mobile practice.    His career continued, working as a companion animal veterinarian and medical director  in a 24hr emergency and general practice in Brampton for over 6 years. He also worked as an emergency veterinarian in the Beaches Toronto.    Dr Benjamin is a member of the Feline Practitioner’s Association and the American Veterinary Medical Association.    His experience in emergency medicine has given a strong appreciation for preventative medicine, as he strongly believes “prevention is better than cure”.    In the 15 years of practice he’s developed a special interest in emergency medicine and critical care, dentistry,  nutrition and holistic or alternative medicine.

    During his off days, his time is spent with his wonderful wife and two adorable Golden Retrievers: “Gracie Mae” and “Mayan”.    He also enjoys hiking, traveling and martial arts.
