Dr. Meredith Galbraith, DVM | Providing Compassionate End-of-Life Care for Companion Animals

I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1992 and started my veterinary career as an associate veterinarian in a small animal clinic in Ottawa. In 1997 I returned to my hometown and began a Companion Animal Mobile, providing house calls for pets in and around Kingston, Ontario. Over the years I have focused more and more on end-of-life care.

I believe that when a pet develops a life-limiting illness or a degenerative condition, it is important to care for the whole animal and ensure their comfort and their happiness for the time they have left. It is important to keep them at home with their family wherever possible. I offer help with end-of-life decision making, providing quality of life assessments, palliative care, and gentle in-home euthanasia.

I book most of my appointments in advance for weekdays between 9 and 5. Evening or weekend appointments are sometimes available for an additional fee. I try to be available to provide in-home euthanasia when it is needed, even on short notice, but I am only one person so I can’t promise to always be available. When the situation is urgent, email is often the best way to contact me.
