Growing up, my household was always filled with animals. From rodents to birds, dogs and horses, we pretty much had it all. I knew from a very young age that my passion was working with animals. After I graduated high school in 2015, I set out to Australia where my eagerness to work with animals only grew. After coming back from my oversea travels in April 2017, I was looking at reputable clinics in the area for my dog. Time and time again I was seeing reviews on how caring and hard working the staff at Park Road were and when I was offered a job, I couldn't have been more thrilled to join such a compassionate team. I have found quite the interest in radiology and ultrasound. Working alongside the doctors/technicians and seeing them interpret the views we get is so fascinating to me and I hope one day to do the same. My favourite thing about working in the clinic would be seeing young pups come in for their first/second/third set of vaccines, and watching them grow up over the years! The thing I find most rewarding about working at Park Road is being able to go to work every day with a smile on my face, it's something that not everyone has the opportunity to do. I love being in a position that allows me to learn and grow on a day-to-day basis, and the team here is one that can't be beat!
A fun fact about myself is that during my first year in Australia, I bought myself a beautiful Border Collie, named Atlas. He is the first dog I have owned myself, and we are quite the duo! Another fact is that my first pet was a lop-eared rabbit named Buster. My mother wouldn't let us get a dog then so we used to take him on walks and bring him to the park. He lived until he was about 11 years old!!
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.
