Autumn’s love and passion for animals and their welfare led her to the Ontario College of Veterinary Medicine.
After graduation in 1977, she immediately started researching natural therapies such as nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, and homeopathy and applying them in her veterinary practice. Because of the excellent results she observed in her patients using natural treatment methods, she embarked on another course of study at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, from which she graduated as a Naturopathic Doctor in 1989.
Upon graduation she received the annual award for excellence in homeopathy. In 2000 she graduated from the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy.
The art and science of medicine is a lifelong study to which Dr. Drouin is dedicated. She continues to regularly attend seminars, courses, and conferences on various medical and veterinary topics. She lecture both to the public and to professionals on veterinary naturopathic medicine.
As of December 2014, Dr. Drouin has announced her retirement from practicing veterinary medicine in Canada. She now resides in beautiful sunny California.
