Stash the Treats!

On every October 31st, children gather together to celebrate their favourite holiday of the year – Halloween. Halloween is a great excuse for parents and kids to eat all the treats they want, and dress up in any costume they can imagine. As a pet owner, you might think giving your furry pal some candy out of your stash would be a good treat for them, but did you know a treat for you could be toxic for them? Several popular Halloween treats are toxic to animals:

  • Candies that contain pure sugar can cause diarrhea and vomiting
  • Chocolate covered raisins combine two deadly ingredients to both dogs and cats
  • Sugar-free items contain a sugar substitute called xylitol which can cause seizures and liver failure in dogs and cats
  • Candies with a high concentration of nuts, or fat can potentially cause pancreatitis

Remember, candy bowls are for trick or treaters not Scruffy and Fluffy!
Treats aren’t the only hazard for our fur-babies, costumes can be fun and silly, but they can also cause undue stress and anxiety. Be sure to have your pet try on the costume before the big night. If he or she seems distressed or shows abnormal behaviour, consider letting your pet wear his or her “birthday suit.” May you and your furry pals be safe this Halloween!

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday April 6, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. Our door will be locked. Please call the number posted on the front door when you arrive and one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians will come to take the history and collect your pet. Our veterinarian will contact you by phone to discuss your pet's health before you leave.

2. We are offering urgent care appointments only at this time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8 am - 6 pm, Wednesday 8 am - 7 pm, and Friday 8 am - 4 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us ahead of time to ensure we have what you need and can have it prepared before your arrival. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the Online Store, please visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
