Dr. Caroline Runyon

Veterinary Surgeon, CCRT

After chasing my dream through Kansas (BSc), Colorado (DVM), Iowa (Medicine/Surgery Internship, Surgery Residency, MSc) to become a qualified veterinary surgeon, I chose to give back by doing research and teaching in Small Animal Surgery - first at Iowa State University and then at UPEI - Atlantic Veterinary College, where I served as the Chief of Small Animal Surgery and a tenured Professor (1986-2012). I enjoy working with the Riverview team and with clients - who allow me the privilege of treating their “children.” I joined Riverview in 2012 on a regular basis.

My lifelong research is to improve the quality of life for my patients. I have been taking special courses in orthopedics to improve and add to my techniques since the 1980's. I was Eastern Canada’s first surgeon to be certified to perform the (Slocum) TPLO Procedure (Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy for the treatment of cranial cruciate ligament injuries in the stifle); to become a qualified CCRT (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Therapist); and certified to perform the KYON PAUL Procedure (Proximal Abducting Ulnar Osteotomy for elbow dysplasia). I have numerous publications and awards for teaching and service. I spend my spare time with my dog and two cats and my 30+ flower gardens, kayaking, sewing, travelling, and watching the birds, squirrels, foxes and other critters.

Everything was great. From the first phone call to the visit to leaving the building. The staff was super friendly…
