I was inspired to go into the veterinary industry because I was born a cat. No need to graduate from school for my position at the hospital - it just comes naturally to me. I joined the clinic a few years ago after I was found wandering the streets.
I love my chair at work because it's very cozy. I also love cat treats because they are delicious. So it's a tie (not really - treats are my favourite).
I love that I'm the one who's really in charge at the clinic. I also love to sleep. My favourite thing about the clinic is that I have the staff wrapped around my little paw. I really love treats - did I mention that already?
Since the COVID pandemic has arrived in Canada (and around the world), we have seen a spike in pet adoptions. This is an amazing thing – for the new pet owner and for the pet. However, one of the other spikes we see on an almost daily basis at the hospital is the need for new owner to attach “a story” to their pet's behaviours – particularly in the instance of “rescue” dogs. In rescue situations, many of the dogs arrive with unknown histories and many of the dogs demonstrate specific or generalized fear and anxiety.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8 am - 6 pm Wednesday: 8 am - 7 pm Friday: 8 am - 4 pm Saturday & Sunday: Closed
