Dr. John Sowerby
Dr. John Sowerby graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1968. After working for 6 years in Toronto, he bought Kingsdale Animal Hospital. He and his wife Dr. Jackie Jenkins built a house and established a farm near Schomberg where they raised their two sons, Leigh and Robert. They recently became proud grandparents to Jackson, born in October 2015.

Following in their parent’s footsteps, the two boys entered the medical profession but chose the human fields of otolaryngology and urology. While operating Kingsdale Animal Hospital, Dr Sowerby was for 25 years a consultant veterinarian for the City of York Animal Shelter and Toronto Animal Services. During that time he established the first minimum fee municipal spay and neuter clinic in Canada.

Dr. Sowerby has a keen interest in unusual pets and helped his wife establish the Wildcare Rescue and Rehabilitation Center at the Kortright Centre. Though he sold Kingsdale to Dr. Boultbee in August 2010, he continues to be part of Kingsdale and still performs surgery 2-3 times per month. This schedule allows him to spend more time to garden, bird watch and go walking with Jackie.
