Dr. Cherese Woollings

Dr. Cherese Woollings completed her BSc with a specialization in health sciences at Trent University and then obtained her veterinary degree from the Ontario Veterinary College.  She grew up in the Peterborough area so moving back home after graduation was a no-brainer!  From a young age, she was taking care of her family’s hound dogs and dreamed of becoming a vet.  Her professional interests include soft tissue surgery and dentistry.  Outside of work, Dr. Woollings enjoys outdoor activities with her family including hiking, kayaking and swimming, especially with her husband and their Coonhound named Ellie.
