Our Veterinarians

Dr. Keith Good

Dr. Keith Good grew up on a livestock farm in Waterloo, ON. He concentrates his veterinary efforts on treating farm animals over a large area from Goulais River to Blind River, Ontario. He graduated from OVC in Guelph in 1983 and moved to Desbarats to buy into the practice. He enjoys beef farming as a hobby.

Dr. Barbara Good

Barb grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario and graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1983. She joined the veterinary staff of Algoma Vet Clinic the same year. Dr. Good is a companion animal practitioner with many years of experience serving the pets in this community. She has many pets of her own so she understands the strong bond owners have with their furry family members. Three dogs and two cats live with her family. The vast majority of her pets through the years have been rescue animals, which she feels makes them extra endearing. Dr. Good has a special interest in soft tissue surgery and geriatric medicine. “My heart goes out to the old and frail pets. My goal is to keep them happy, healthy and as comfortable as possible in their senior years."

Dr. Andrea Lazier (and Beau)

I grew up in a little country town called Harrowsmith ON. Right from a young age I knew I wanted to be a vet. I did entertain the idea of a few other career choices for a while, including playing the clarinet in an orchestra, but I always came back to wanting to be a veterinarian. I attended the University of Guelph with this goal in mind, and completed a BSc in Biological Sciences. I was then lucky enough to be accepted into the veterinary medicine program at the Ontario Veterinary College. I graduated in 2009, with the intent of being a farm animal veterinarian, and accepted a job on Manitoulin Island. In February of 2014 I moved to Desbarats and was able to find a position with Algoma Veterinary Clinic. Here I have continued some farm animal medicine, but have also discovered a love for companion animal medicine I didn't know I had. I am hoping to be able to stay here at AVC and continue to develop my skills with both large and small animals for many years to come.
