Our staff

Dawn Milway-Arthurs

Dawn Milway-Arthurs has been with Arthropharm Pharmaceuticals since 2006 when she was hired to “bring awareness” to Canadian veterinarians and dog owners about Cartrophen Vet. In her role as Director and General Manager Dawn oversees everything Cartrophen Vet and has built a small but strong team to assist.

Dawn’s focus has been on building and maintaining relationships with the distributors and veterinary clinics. Arranging for a bilingual website, providing bilingual clinic aids and ensuring that veterinary technical support is only a phone call away has been a priority. Over the years Dawn has run promotions giving away useful, pet friendly products. She firmly believes having a product like Cartrophen Vet to promote makes her job easy.

Dawn lives with her husband on a family farm in rural Quebec with their black angus cattle, two dogs Beamer and Denim and their cat Callie. In her spare time, Dawn enjoys spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Abbie Kelly

Abbie Kelly is an administrative assistant at Arthropharm Pharmaceuticals, she joined the team in November 2018. She works closely with Dawn on all day to day administrative and marketing tasks. Being able to communicate with clients in their preferred language (English or French) is an asset that Abbie brings to the Arthropharm team.

Abbie graduated from Concordia in 2017 with a degree in Economics, she then completed a certificate in Human Resources following her bachelor’s degree. Abbie lives in rural Québec with her boyfriend, their cat Otis and dog Murphy. In her spare time, she loves to travel, read and practice yoga.

Stéphane Bissonnette

Dr. Stéphane Bissonnette, D.M.V., M. Sc. (FMV 2021) will answer all your medical or technical questions. He brings to our team his strong experience in canine and feline medicine.

After his doctorate in veterinary medicine, Stéphane completed an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the DMV Veterinary Center in Montréal and then worked as clinician in general practice. In 2004, Stéphane returned to St-Hyacinthe for a one-year clinical training in veterinary dermatology and then combined his work in general practice and completed his master’s degree in clinical sciences at the Université de Montréal in 2008. Dr. Bissonnette has been teaching Animal Health Technology with emphasis on nutrition and anatomy at Collège Laflèche in Trois-Rivières since 2007. Prior to studying veterinary medicine, Stéphane studied in environmental biology, which remains a very important topic to him.

As much as veterinary medicine is an important part of his life, balance is essential to Stéphane and he reaches it through travel and physical activity. Running is part of Stéphane’s routine, and he plans to complete his first marathon in the next few years. Stéphane is pictured here with the family dogs, an Australian Shepherd named Kelly and a Jack Russell Terrier named Gazouille.
