Dr. Andrzej Olender
Dr. Andrzej Olender graduated in 1990 from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He opened his small animal and equine mobile practice on March Road in 1991. Soon after, in 1994, he acquired the Dunrobin Veterinary Clinic. “Dr. O.”, his wife and four children have lived in North Kanata since the early 1990s. They share their home with two cats named Vegetable and Zelda. Why Vegetable? Well, she was found at a local grocery store in the produce department, hence her name. After being brought to the March Road Veterinary Hospital, Veggie was adopted by the family. In his spare time, Dr. O. likes to spend time in his family’s garden (it’s a big garden!), downhill skiing, and learning new languages. Although Dr. O. has special interests in many aspects of veterinary medicine, his main focus is in surgery, ultrasound, and dentistry. He is one of the few veterinarians in Ottawa repairing cruciate ligaments with TTA (Tibial Tuberosity Advancement) surgery and various extra-capsular techniques, like the Arthrex TightRope, the SwiveLock Knottless techniques, and the Arthrex Corkscrew and FASTak techniques. Dr. O enjoys mentoring new veterinarians and students and insists on continuing education.
