Guest Speakers:

Dr. Paisley Canning
South West Ontario Veterinary Services

Paisley was born and raised in southwestern Ontario. Her family had a farrow to finish operation in Dunnville which ignited her passion for pigs and the swine industry. She received a BASc from McMaster University and her DVM from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph in 2014. During school, she worked with OMAFRA, OVC Population Medicine, and Ontario Pork to gain diverse exposure in swine and dairy. After vet school, Paisley went to Iowa State University for a swine specialty postdoctoral fellowship position at the Swine Medicine Education Center. Here she worked doing clinical swine work, applied research and teaching with over ten large Midwest production companies. In 2017 she completed her Ph.D. in swine microbiology, pharmacology and epidemiology with Drs. Locke Karriker and Alex Ramirez. In the fall of 2017, she joined South West to specialize in swine medicine and research. Outside of work, she hikes with her dog and enjoys oil painting, cross-country skiing and spending time with her family.
