I knew from a very young age that I needed to look after animals. I remember vividly at the age of three, I was playing with all the dogs in the neighbourhood and had a strong will to protect them from harm. Deciding which career path to take was never an issue for me. I graduated Ridgetown College in 1995, with a degree in Veterinary Technology. I have continued to further my education, specializing in Ultrasound. My family have been clients at Park Road Veterinary Clinic since I was a child. In high school, I applied to do my co-op course here and after co-op, I was hired as kennel help and assistant to a groomer. I worked my way up to veterinary assistant and finally, technician.
I am most interested in helping the veterinarians to diagnose and treat illness. It is an amazing feeling to watch pets recover from illness and go home to their families. One of my favourite things about Park Road Veterinary Clinic is the great team I work with, they all go above and beyond to help clients and their pets. I also love our facilities and our extensive in-house diagnostic equipment. Fun fact about me is that I have another exciting part-time job drug testing show horses and racehorses. My first pet was a dog named Spunky; I remember being very angry at my mom for making me come home from the park one day, but my heart melted when she showed me the little Labrador and Collie mix puppy sitting in our kitchen.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 15, 2020 some 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 519-759-3031. 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. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
