Meet The Doctors

Dr. Helena Dean

Dr. Helena Dean opened Dean Veterinary Hospital in 2004.  Dean Veterinary Hospital offers veterinary care for numerous species in hospital and in a mobile capacity as well.  Dr. Dean went to Leaside High School in Leaside, Ontario.  She then completed a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Guelph and a Degree in Veterinary Medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario.  Dr. Dean has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1989 and over the years has had the pleasure of working on not only dogs, cats and horses but pocket pets and pot-bellied and mini pigs.  Dr. Dean currently lives in Caledon on her farm with her horses and donkeys (Oswald, Daisy and Horacio).

Outside of the hospital Dr Dean has been participating in spaying and neutering feral dogs in Northern Canada with the Grey Bruce Aboriginal Qimmiq team since 2012.  Other exciting places Dr Dean has volunteered her veterinary skills was Papua New Guinea in 2017.
