Dr. Lynn Broadhurst has been helping me out for a few years now, filling in to allow me some time away. As of this year, she joins us permanently as our Doctor on duty on Fridays.
Dr. Lynn Broadhurst, born into a thoroughbred horse racing family, spent her childhood on Windfields’ National Stud Farm in Oshawa. In public school she set her sights on a veterinary career. Throughout high school in Bramalea, she spent weekends and holidays with her dad in his racing stable following the Ontario thoroughbred circuit.
During her undergraduate years at the University of Guelph, she met her spouse Claus Hoyer. (After 43 years she says he deserves the medal). After graduation from OVC in 1977, she practiced equine and small animal medicine north of Toronto. In 1983 after the birth of Gary, their first son, Claus and Lynn moved to Anten Mills, just north of Barrie. Lynn practiced small animal medicine in Barrie while Claus set up his accounting practice. After their second son Greg, was born in 1986, Lynn became an associate in a small animal mobile practice.
A first time grandma of a gorgeous baby girl, Lynn is eager to add grandparenting to her list of hobbies. They include fishing and cottaging/ golf/music and theatre going as well as keeping house for Gus and Lizzie, the 2 felines pictured below.
“ I am proud and excited to be a member of Colborne Street Pet Hospital with Dr. Joanne and her wonderful staff. Their dedication to veterinary medicine and their clients’ and patients’ well being is exceptional”
