Having grown up with a variety of pets, Dr. Watts knew from an early age that he wanted to work with animals. After obtaining his D.V.M. in 1988, he went on to complete his M.Sc. (Hons.) in Clinical Medicine and Surgery. He successfully ran his own small animal practice for a number of years before coming to Canada where he obtained his Certificate of Qualification in 2006 (Canadian Veterinary Medical Association). Since then, Dr. Watts has worked at several veterinary clinics in Toronto, Peterborough and Oakville before opening Highland Creek Animal Clinic in Scarborough in 2011.
Dr. Watts’ interests include dentistry, surgery, cardiology, internal medicine and pain management. He actively pursues continuing education opportunities in order to keep up to date with his treatment protocols. He is a member of The College of Veterinarians of Ontario, Ontario Veterinary Medical Association and the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association.
Over the years his animal family has included dogs, cats, budgies, finches, hawks, falcons and tropical fish. In 2000 he fulfilled his dream of working with falcons and eagles when he completed a two-month Externship at the Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota.
