The History of our practice dates back proudly to 1978, when Dr. Dave Streib graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College and moved east to the small community of Orleans. He established The Orleans Veterinary Hospital at its initial location on St. Joseph Boulevard, just east of Orleans Blvd. His very first employee Maureen Martin, affectionately known as Mo, is still currently one of the leaders of our reception team today. Dr. Dave quickly out grew that small plaza location and moved the hospital in 1987 to the then farmers field located at the corner of Tenth Line and Innes Road, where it is currently located.
Dave’s brother Dr. Kurt Streib joined him in 1993 following graduation, and classmate Dr. Mary Kinch later joined the practice in 1994. As the community continued to grow, Dr. Kirk Als, another classmate and friend of Kurt and Mary joined the practice to round out the partnership in 2002.
Following 29 years of dedicated service to the 4 legged members of our community, Dr. Dave announced his well earned retirement from Veterinary medicine in 2007. We are very proud of his legacy and we enjoy carrying on the vision that he created. We pride ourselves on continuing to provide the highest level of care and compassion possible for our canine and feline friends. Drs. Kris Chandroo, Venessa Bossé, Katie Lee and Don Caldwell comprise the remainder of our veterinarians. Our staff now consists of over 30 members of the community and we are very proud of the team we have.
For many years the Orleans community has seen enormous growth, and we have felt the need to expand along with it… not to mention our parking limitations. In May 2013 we completed construction on our new building (conveniently located right next door to the old one). Offering our clients 5 larger exam rooms, as well as a dedicated quiet room. We now have a larger treatment area to accommodate our staff and your pets. We have also introduced our new Boutique: carrying a wide variety of veterinary prescription diets, treats, toys and so much more.
In January 2015 we were so proud to be voted Large Business Of The Year by the Orleans Chamber of Commerce. We are so pleased to live and work in such a wonderful community and we look forward to working in Orleans for years to come.
