Bronwyn Rutland, Internal Medicine

BSc, BVMS, DACVIM

Dr. Rutland completed her veterinary degree at Perth, Australia’s Murdoch University in 2002, and after a few years in mixed, emergency and small animal practice in Australia and Canada, started her internship at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) in 2005. Following her internship, she was successful in gaining an residency in Internal Medicine; Dr. Rutland completed her Internal Medicine residency at Michigan State University in 2009, and was board certified with the ACVIM in July 2009. After starting the Internal Medicine service at Southpaws Specialty Surgery for Animals, Melbourne, Australia, Dr. Rutland returned to Canada and the OVC to join the Internal Medicine Department for a one year faculty contract position. She is currently heads the Internal Medicine team at the 404 Veterinary Emergency and Referral Hospital in Newmarket.

Whilst Dr. Rutland enjoys all aspects of internal medicine, she has a special interest in lower urinary tract diseases, and has a specific research interest in malakoplakia and chronic cystitis in dogs and cats. During her training at MSU, she was able to gain a wealth of experience in endoscopy, and specifically endourology (endoscopy of the lower urinary tract).

Dr. Rutland has recently taken the position of the intern director and co-manages the externship program with Naomi Attar. She loves teaching and if you are interested in doing an internship or externship at the 404 VERH, please email her and Naomi at: [email protected]

When not at the 404 VERH, Dr. Rutland enjoys spending time on their farm, with her husband and their Arabian horses and 2 cats. She loves horse riding, and has competed extensively in endurance riding (marathon horse riding) throughout her life.
