Our Veterinarians

Dr. Murray Runstedler

Dr. Murray Runstedler graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 1993. Following one year of mixed practice, he came to work for Linwood Veterinary Services, where he has worked ever since. Currently, he is a managing partner and spends most of his time in dairy management and consultation. Dr. Runstedler and his wife, Sharon, are the proud parents of six wonderful children.



Dr. Paul Sostar

Dr. Paul Sostar was raised north of Hamilton in West Flamboro, Ontario, where he worked in the dairy industry part-time and during summers. Paul graduated from the University of Guelph with two degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in 1990 and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1995. Paul has been with Linwood Veterinary Services and Hwy 89 Veterinary Services since graduation and is currently a partner in the business. Paul concentrates on dairy and beef medicine, as well as dairy production and management.



Dr. Andrew MacLeod

Originally from the Maritimes, Dr. Andrew MacLeod has been with Linwood Veterinary Services since 2001 and is currently a partner. During that time, he has focused on dairy production medicine and reproduction, including, most recently, embryo transfer. Andrew and his wife, Alison, have four young children and live in Linwood.



Dr. Kelly Haelzle

Dr. Haelzle grew up on a family dairy farm, Hells-lea Farms Ltd., near Mildmay, Ontario, and always enjoyed working with cattle. She is a 2009 graduate of the University of Guelph and lives in the Clifford area with her husband.



Dr. Kelly Fisher

I grew up in Queensville, Ontario, on a cow-calf farm, and my family owns a duck farm just outside of Newmarket. I attended the University of Guelph for my undergraduate studies and continued on to complete my doctorate of veterinary medicine at OVC. My interests include dairy reproduction and surgery, and equine medicine. In my spare time, I enjoy horseback riding, gardening and spending time with family.



Dr. Meghan Winsor

Meghan Winsor grew up in Newfoundland, Canada. Like most veterinarians, her love of animals started at a young age but the road to becoming a vet was not so straightforward. After completing a bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, with a minor in agricultural business at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia, Meghan took a year off to work at a financial agricultural lending agency. Realizing that a desk job wasn’t the perfect fit she decided it was time to pursue veterinary medicine. She applied to schools abroad and completed her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery (BVMS) at the University of Glasgow in bonnie Scotland and graduated in 2021. As a new graduate, Meghan has spent the last year in mixed animal practice in Maryland, USA dealing mostly with dogs, cats, small ruminants and pet pigs.
