Dr. Jeff Kader obtained his doctorate in veterinary medicine from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Montreal in June 1989.

In 2001, he purchased Clinique Vétérinaire de Hull and expanded the practice in 2012 to a new and larger location.
He appreciates and enjoys all aspects of the profession, from complicated and challenging orthopaedic surgeries, foreign objects to the common vaccination and general health exams. At home, he has Beasley, a long haired cat that enjoys being outside as much as he can.
Dr. Kader feels privileged to be surrounded by animals and it has been an honour to help people with their pets, whether it is a small rat, rabbit, dog, cat, pig or horse.
