Join us in welcoming to our team, Dr. Ian Burniston.


Ian was born and raised in North Vancouver, but has always had the travel bug. During his undergraduate degree at UBC he participated in a biology field studies program where he spent four months travelling through East Africa, and after graduating with a BSc in Biology he rewarded himself with a six month trip through Central and South America. In 2007 he moved to London, England to study for his MSc at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. After a brief stint back in Canada, Ian moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to study Veterinary Medicine at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University of Edinburgh. His main areas of interest at vet school were diagnostic imaging and small animal internal medicine. Upon graduating in July 2014 Ian and his wife moved back to beautiful British Columbia, and he is very excited to begin his veterinary career at McKenzie Veterinary Services with such a great team. Outside of work, Ian has grown up playing hockey and cheering for the Canucks, playing ultimate Frisbee and has recently taken up ten-pin bowling!
