Our Team

Dr. Kim Facey:
Dr. Facey inherited her love for animals from both her parents and from the age of five, wanted to be a Veterinarian. Her family life included dogs, cats, fish, and hamsters. Her Christmas wish for horseback riding lessons at the age of thirteen turned into a lifelong passion and she decided that she was going to be an equine Veterinarian.

During her time at the Ontario Veterinary College, she realized that she loved working with many species and her first job after graduation in Lindsay was in a mixed animal practice. She moved to Apsley in the spring of 1994 to be with her partner Gord and took a job closer to home, working exclusively with small animals. She continued this for 13 years at a wonderful clinic in Peterborough Champlain Animal Hospital.

Her son Jordan was born in 2000 and she moved to part time work for a number of years and realized the long drive to work was taking its toll. After leaving Champlain, she did locum work for four years ( helping out Veterinarians during busy times and when they were on holidays) while trying to acquire a suitable site for her own practice.

In April of 2009, the doors to Apsley Veterinary Services were opened.

Dr. Facey still has dogs and cats and horses at home, as well as a pot bellied pig named Harley. She was a founding board member of the Kawartha Veterinary Association and an original partner in the start up of the Kawartha Veterinary Emergency Clinic.

She enjoys her free time with family at the cottage and hopes to find more time for horseback riding in the years to come as well as getting back into Search and Rescue training with her canines.

Dr. Brooke Janson:
Dr. Brooke decided at the age of 5 that she would become a veterinarian after going to a vet appointment with her family golden retriever Abby. She quickly fell in love with the idea of caring for animals, which only grew when she got her first horse Chaps a quarter horse.

Dr. Brooke attended the University of Guelph where she received an undergraduate degree in animal biology, then a master’s degree working with the cheetahs at the African Lion Safari.  After this Dr. Brooke was accepted into the Ontario Veterinary College where she received her DVM in 2014 and focused on small animals.

Dr. Brooke has a strong interest in small animal reproduction as well as behaviour. Brooke’s interest in behaviour started after bringing home her stabyhoun Rubic, who has separation anxiety.  So after living in a house with a dog with anxiety Dr. Brooke loves to answer questions and help clients who are experiencing similar challenges.

Dr. Brooke really enjoys spending time with her horse Chaps as well as her dog Rubic and cat Mandy. Brooke’s passions also include photography as well as drawing. Dr. Brooke, has participated in UKC conformation shows, agility as well as rally training with Rubic.​
