Rob Kyle grew up a few miles south of Stony Plain and has always considered the Tri-Municipal region his home. After graduating from Memorial Composite High School in Stony Plain, Rob was undecided as to what career he wanted to pursue, and spent time working in multiple fields to help guide his decision. It wasn’t until Rob spent time with his Uncle John, retired veterinarian and owner of Mayerthorpe and Whitecourt Veterinary Clinics, that he chose veterinary medicine as his career path. In 2004, he enrolled in the College of Agriculture at the University of Alberta, where that he met his wife Vanessa. In the fall of 2006, Rob was accepted to the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Upon graduating from vet school Rob began his career in a mixed animal practice just outside of Saskatoon, while Vanessa completed vet school. In 2012, Rob and Vanessa decided that it was time to return home to provide veterinary care to their community. Although starting their own practice has been a lot of hard work, Rob feels truly blessed by the opportunities presented in the Tri-Municipal Area.
Rob became a veterinarian so that he could help not only animals, but families as well. One of the challenging, yet thrilling parts of the job, is that no day is ever the same. Rob believes that being a veterinarian is one of the most interesting careers one could have. There is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t learn something new. Rob’s veterinary interests include small animal surgery, preventative medicine, and large animal herd health. Rob keeps busy in his spare time playing hockey, slow pitch ball, swimming casually, and spending time with his two sons, daughter, and wife. He enjoys heading to the mountains and jumping on the quad for a rip in the country side.
