Hi! I’m Dr. Yu. I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian since I was 12 (fortunately or unfortunately, it surpassed the desire to be a magician). I did my BSc in Biology and Psychology at Wilfrid Laurier University and then completed my veterinary degree at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. My clinical interests include geriatric care, pain management, and fear-free practice.

Dr. Edison Barrientos
Team member since 2012 - Veterinarian
I am the founder of Wellesley Animal Hospital. I came to Canada as a young child with my family from Chile. Since I was a small boy I had a fascination with animals. I was always trying to convince my parents to accept a new pet that I had taken in or somebody was trying to give away. My collection of pets ranged from a chicken to a budgie, to a turtle, and of course a cat and a dog.
