Meet the Veterinarians


Dr. Merv Madill

Dr. Madill grew up on a mixed farm in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan and has enjoyed being around animals his entire life. He joined the Corydon Animal Hospital in 1972 after receiving his DVM from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon. Veterinary medicine has gone through major changes during his long career. He recognizes that the task of keeping up to date with the most current diagnostic methods is made all the more challenging by the fact that the anatomy and physiology of cats and dogs differ in many significant ways. He enjoys all aspects of the profession and takes particular pleasure in enhancing the quality of life for his patients. He enjoys taking long walks with his Golden Retriever “Sophie”. He also has two cats, “Stella” and “Toodles”. His interests include slo-pitch baseball, cross-country skiing, traveling and flying small aircraft.
