Dr. Mary Ellen Dunning graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1988. Her special interests include orthopedic surgery and rehabilitation medicine. After graduation, she practiced in Cornwall for several years before taking time off to backpack across Europe. She then began working in a small animal practice in Northern England near Manchester. After returning home, Dr Dunning founded Cumberland Veterinary Hospital in 1994. Her hobbies include: restoring classic pinball machines and driving antique VW Beetles. She also shares her home with 3 dogs and 6 cats. Or perhaps it should be said, the four legged kids let Dr. Dunning and her family live with them.
