As a member of the veterinary profession for over 25 years, she has devoted her entire career to PG Vet’s clients and pets. Dr. Kalyn has excellent surgical and medical skills and takes the time to ensure each client she sees is well informed and understands clearly what is affecting their pet and the medical plan being put in place to resolve the identified issue. She loves to help people develop closer bonds with their pets and being a part of the pet owning and pet caring community.

Deb is married and also lives with Tilly Hat (a Tibetan Spaniel). When not at work Deb enjoys sailing, SCUBA diving, travelling, walking the dog, wine making, gardening and learning.

“I feel very privileged to have been able to live out my childhood dream. I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian since I was about 5 years old."


Dr. Terrence Barbonis

Dr. Barbonis PG Vet

Terrence came to Prince George from The Netherlands on the last day of 2010.

His area of interest is internal medicine.

He is living in Prince George and is happy to be in a city where there is plenty of space and that offers a good variety of outdoor recreational activities.

Dr. Ben Bauman

Dr. Bauman PG Vet

Dr. Bauman is one of our associate veterinarians. He was born and raised in Prince George where he attended Duchess Park Secondary. After graduation he moved to Victoria, B.C. where he received a Cell and Molecular Biology Degree from the University of Victoria. He then decided to become a veterinarian because of his deep love for canines which led him to Saskatoon where he completed the DVM program at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine. Upon completion of the veterinary program he practiced companion animal medicine in Edmonton, Alberta while his partner completed her French immersion teaching degree. With their professional programs in hand, they returned to Prince George to raise their family.

Dr. Bauman is excited to continue developing his career in companion animal medicine while growing firm roots in his hometown.

Dr. Bauman and his wife are enjoying raising their daughter and son while spending time exploring the outdoors by hiking, mountain biking, fishing and hunting. Currently their pet family consists of two dogs Adele (Chocolate Labrador) and Bobby (Boston Terrier) plus Edie (domestic shorthair cat).

"As a veterinarian my goal is to provide complete and honest veterinary care to the patient s and clients at PG Vet. My main interests are surgery and dentistry."
