Dr. Thrush obtained his DVM degree (with distinction) in 1993 from the University of Saskatchewan. He is the proud owner of Brandon Hills Veterinary Clinic. He loves spending time getting to know his patients (he especially likes puppy kisses) and their human families. His extended family consists of his dogs Isla, Olivia, & Nori (all of whom came from the Brandon Humane Society), an embarrassing number of cats, an aquarium full of African Cichlids, and a small herd of horses. In his time off, Dr. Thrush enjoys tinkering with machinery, fishing, horseback riding, antiquing, motorcycling, and studying wildlife and nature. Throughout his career, Dr. Thrush has been actively involved with the Manitoba Veterinary Medical Association, and is a past president of the MVMA. His special interests include orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, dermatology, endoscopy, laser therapy, ultrasound, and exotic pets of all kinds.
