We would like to introduce Dr. Paul Manesis (pronounced man-eh-sis).
Growing up New Jersey, Dr. Manesis knew that all he ever wanted to do was to help animals. He started his journey going to La Salle University in Philadelphia where he majored in Integrated Science, Business & Technology, and minored in Biology. His studies then took him overseas to the Emerald Isle of Ireland where he graduated from the University College Dublin School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Manesis then followed his passion for surgery and emergency medicine by completing an Internal Medicine and Surgery Internship at the Veterinary Emergency and Referral Group in Brooklyn, NY.
Aside from veterinary medicine Dr. Manesis enjoys boxing, as well as other sports, cooking, and spending time with his furry family, a 3-legged cat “Jackie” and Shih-Tzu mix “Ray”. Having always been a devout Yankees fan, he is still (reluctantly) getting used to switching his alliances to the Toronto Blue Jays! Dr. Manesis is looking forward to meeting your furry companions.
The cold winter will be fast approaching, are you ready, let alone is your pet ready? We now will carry "snout soother". A balm that actually works on dry cracked skin. Simply apply to affected area, and over a short time heals that unwanted ugly cracked skin. Nose tips are especially prone to dryness.
Dr. Lechten spent some time with the CNIB Simcoe/Muskoka as a guest speaker to a full house of CNIB VIP (visually impaired people). She was explaining how pets can still be cared for even for people who are blind, or partially sighted. She explained knowledge about good pet care, even with vision loss.
