About Our Vets

Dr. Amy Bennett

Dr. Amy Bennett started riding and loving horses at a young age. She knew right away that she would devote her career to taking care of horses. Amy obtained a degree in Animal Biology from the University of Guelph, then went on to graduate with honours from the Ontario Veterinary College.

Upon graduation, Amy completed a rigorous year long internship at a large equine referral hospital in Southern California, where she gained valuable skills in lameness, sports medicine, surgery and internal medicine. Her main area of interests are lameness, diagnostic imaging and emergency care.

In her free time, Amy enjoys riding her hunter mare, Coco, spending time with her family keeping up to date on the latest information in equine medicine.

Dr. Megan Donati

Dr. Megan Donati’s equine passion began at 3 years old when she was plunked on the saddle of a 30-year-old mare. That planted the seeds towards owning horses and successfully competing and riding on the ‘A’ circuit in the equitation and jumper rings.
Megan obtained a Bachelor of Science in Animal Biology at the University of Guelph and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the Ontario Veterinary College, graduating both with honours.
Today she enjoys all aspects of equine practice from internal medicine, diagnostic imaging, lameness, reproduction, and critical care. While making Guelph her new home, Dr. Megan also enjoys spending time at her family’s cottage, hiking, skiing, and naturally, time in the saddle.

Dr. Christy Barnes

Dr. Christy Barnes learned to ride and care for horses near Cobourg, Ontario. Christy obtained a degree in Animal Biology from the University of Guelph and took a detour into teaching with a degree in Education from the University of Toronto. After teaching grades 7-12 for several years she returned to the equine industry, graduating with honours from the Ontario Veterinary College. Christy spent time in the United States developing her particular interests in wellness, dentistry and lameness. When not at the barn, Christy enjoys reading all kinds of fiction, volunteering with the Canadian Pony Club and spending time at the cottage with her family.
