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.

Rebecca Schofield Community Event

Riverview Animal Hospital helped last week to build the Rebecca Schofield All World Super Play Park. It was a huge community event with over 2, 583 volunteers that built a giant accessible playground for all of Greater Moncton's Children to enjoy. Rebecca Schofield is Riverview New Brunswick's international celebrity. In 2016, at 16 years old Rebecca became ill, what was thought to be the flu turn into a diagnosis of Brain Cancer. In the short time before her death in 2018, Rebecca started a global movement, by inspiring people around the world to simply be kind to one another. Her hashtag #beccatoldmeto is to this day still seen all over the world as people perform random acts of kindness. Her legacy lives on making the world a better place one act of kindness at a time. We were very proud to be able to do our small part in helping to build the playground. We know that Becca's legacy will carry on for years to come, and I know the team at RAH will think of her every time we see the smiles of children as they play on their new beautiful playground.
