Penelope Adams, Veterinarian


Dr. Penelope Adams hails from the United Kingdom, but came to Canada with her parents and sister as a child. She graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology, and then found that the gender restrictions for “vet school” admissions had been lifted. She decided to pursue her earlier dreams of becoming a veterinarian! She graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 1981, and has enjoyed working at Kanata Animal Hospital since 1990.

Dr. Adams feels very fortunate to love what she does and finds it very satisfying to be able to help pets and their families every day. She participates actively in continuing education in order to keep up with advances in veterinary medicine.

Dr. Adams and her husband Mark are currently dog-less, having lost their Doberman named Dexi recently. Dexi lived happily for two years as a three-legged amputee after losing his leg to bone cancer. They fill the present gap by helping to look after their friends’ dogs. She is an avid horseback rider on her Quarter Horse Sierra, and also enjoys reading, biking and spending time in nature.
