Our Veterinarians

Dr. Natalie Rosamund

I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College (O.V.C.) in Guelph in 2004, after completing a B.Sc.in Bio-Medical Sciences in 2000, and I’ve worked in a small animal/emergency hospital ever since. My main interests include preventive medicine and nutrition. Although I love to help a sick pet get well again, my main passion is keeping them healthy to begin with. I am also interested in small mammals (pocket pets), and I’m always trying to learn more about addressing their special needs. I believe that alternative therapies have a lot to offer, and I have been studying Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine through the Chi Institute if Chinese Veterinary Medicine. I am excited to be able to offer this as an additional treatment option for our patients at Westbridge! I currently live with my husband and our four crazy cats and one curious guinea pig. When I’m not at the clinic, you will most likely find me at the barn, spending time with my wonderful, spoiled horse, Phoenix. .

Dr. Cathy Buller

After graduating from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1984, I have enjoyed over 20 years of practicing veterinary medicine with my partner and husband Dr. Bob Hylands. We owned one of the largest 24 hour hospitals in Ontario, where I practiced and was Hospital Administrator until we sold the practice in 2006. I am very happy to practice with Drs. Morin and Rosamund as we work at a pace where we can be personable to our clients and their pets.

I am involved with our church, the mother of two great young adults, past president of the Brampton Veterinary Association, previous author of Vetalk in the Brampton Guardian for 15 years, and professor at Sheridan College for the Veterinary Technician students in Diagnostic Imaging.

I love the practice of veterinary medicine. I love animals and enjoy talking to people about their pets. I am a proficient surgeon, and have been involved with the use of laser in surgery for many years. As well, I enjoy teaching the many staff members and veterinarians that I have been in contact with over the years.

Dr. Sonia Morin

I graduated from the University of Guelph with a B.Sc. in 1995 and from O.V.C. in 2000. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with small animals providing preventive care and surgeries, with a special interest in internal and emergency medicine. When I’m not at work, I’m at home with my husband where we serve one great Dane and three cats: the big goofball slobber monster Seth, the queen of the household, our 8 lb spitfire Diva, our mischievous little monster Oz, and last but not least our sweet and playful Kira.

Dr. Robert Hylands

I first started my career with animals studying for a BSc. in Wildlife Management at the University of McGill in Montreal. While attending the University, I was blessed with the opportunity to hand raise three orphaned Timber wolves. Through this experience, I learnt firsthand the origin of many of the common daily traits of our domesticated dogs.

My degree in veterinary medicine was obtained from the University of Guelph in 1984. I married my best friend, Dr. Cathy Buller, and together we established one of the provinces first 24 hour hospitals for pets in Brampton. We were the first to add a spiral CT scanner for pets in the GTA, while developing new and advanced surgical and diagnostic skills.

My love for the profession is really in a multitude of disciplines. I have special interest in diagnostic imaging (Ultrasound), non-invasive diagnostic procedures, plus both soft tissue and reconstructive surgeries. I also enjoy the challenges of orthopedic surgery, and take great comfort in returning a pet’s mobility and quality of life. Through 2005-06, I also wrote and published quarterly articles in the Canadian Veterinary Journal on Diagnostic Imaging. We sold the busy 24 hour practice in September 2006.

Early retirement did not seem like a good option for us since we both missed our interactions with our clients and their pets. After a period of well deserved rest, we returned to public life doing what we enjoy most, with people we respect. My time during this period has also been spent mentoring and helping other veterinarians develop new skills in ultrasound imaging and laser surgery. I am an associate editor on the Veterinary Information Network (VIN .com) where I help answer postings from veterinarians from around the world with respect to their own cases and the ultrasound images associated with them. I also visit practices coast to coast in Canada to teach about ultrasonography

I am also blessed with two wonderful children, who are both the pride of my life. I am active at Church. I have been active in the martial arts, Ju-Jitsu and Tai Chi, and have accomplished Nidan ranking in GoJu.
