Dr. Caroline Matyas

Caroline's family would say that it was no surprise that she chose a career in veterinary medicine; she was always busy with animals. Caroline grew up surrounded by pets - turtles, budgies, dogs, cats, fish and even a Moroccan tortoise. Caroline graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1985 and after a year at a clinic in downtown Toronto, she ventured east and spent four years practicing small animal medicine in central Newfoundland. Caroline met her husband there and moved to Kingston 24 years ago. Dr. Matyas has been a full-time mother of four children and a part-time veterinarian until recently. Now that her children are older, Dr. Matyas is able to embrace veterinary medicine full time. She loves Kingston - the lake, the easy proximity to places to hike and paddle, the music, the wonderful opportunities for raising a family. Caroline looks forward to getting to know you and your special pets!
