Following his 83rd birthday and a certain amount of medical adventure, Dr. Colin Peace has decided to retire and step down from Veterinary Practice. As such, he is obliged to close his Aberfoyle Veterinary Services clinic on September 28, 2019. His Field Licence, however, will extend to December 31, 2019.
Dr. Peace graduated from Cambridge University, England in 1962, worked in Yorkshire, took a six-month tour of American Equine facilities and returned to join the thoroughbred racehorse practice of Rossdale and Hunt in Newmarket, England.
In 1976, after the gold medal Olympic performance of the UK Modern Pentathlon team, he and his wife and family undertook an eight-month lecture and demonstration tour throughout South America. They subsequently returned to the UK.
Two years later Dr. Peace was lured to the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph to teach surgery. In 1985 Dr. Peace established Aberfoyle Veterinary Services where he has treated horses, farm, zoo and small animals since.
Dr. Peace and his wife, Anne, thank all of their clients of the last 34 years for their friendship and trust with their various animals. It has been a great honour.
