Dr. Jonathan Uyede was born and raised in Guelph, and in fact, went to elementary school, high-school, and university (including the veterinary college) all on the same street! Dr. Uyede’s interest in veterinary medicine was solidified when he began working at a clinic in Guelph as a teenager. He graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2006 and began working in emergency veterinary medicine. Although he enjoyed the fast-paced atmosphere of emergency medicine, Dr. Uyede missed the opportunity to build long-term relationships with people and pets. He began working in companion animal hospitals in the Guelph and K/W area which led him to working with Parkdale in March of 2015. Dr. Uyede always planned that he would someday own his own practice, and in September of 2015 he became the proud new owner of Parkdale Animal Hospital. Dr. Uyede and his family share their home with Bronson, a terrier mix, and Sumi a Jack Russel Terrier. He and his wife enjoy traveling and many types of outdoor sports and activities.
