Mike Pownall DVM MBA is owner of McKeePownall Equine services in the greater Toronto Area Canada, together with his wife Melissa McKee. Mike started as a farrier, became DVM at later age. Mike did his MBA at Ivey Business School at Western University to better manage his growing group of equine practices. Mike is dedicated to management education and support for the veterinary profession and is one of the owners of Oculus Insights. Mike has educated veterinarians in Canada, USA, Europe, China and Australia on various managerial subjects. He felt that we can’t offer excellent care if the business is struggling to pay its bills, or can’t afford the right diagnostic equipment because of poor financial management, or if there is high staff turnover because of a poor work environment. Good business leads to good medicine, it’s as simple as that.
