I am currently enrolled in a Veterinary Technician program at Penn Foster College. I am currently working as a veterinary assistant and working towards being a veterinary technician. My partner and I currently live in Port Elgin. I decided to join the veterinary field because I have always had a strong passion and love for animals. I decided to go into the veterinary field because, obvious reason, I love animals! I also enjoy the medical field in general and has always been an interest and passion of mine. I joined the Southampton Pet Hospital first as a co-op student when I was 17 years of age. I then became part-time kennel staff, to full-time animal care attendant, to full-time veterinary assistant and am still working my way up the ladder! My passion in the veterinary medical field is in critical care, emergencies, and surgeries. I love dealing with the animals of different species and sizes as well as the medical aspect of the job. My favourite thing about the clinic is even though education is extremely important, the amount of experience that everyone here has, as well as their natural talent and bond with the animals speaks volumes. According to some clients who don't recall my name, I am known as, "The little blonde one with the squeaky voice," so say the receptionists. When I was six-years-old, my first family pet was a Beagle/Jack Russel Terrier crossbreed named Mickey. Right now, I have two lovable mutts at home!
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 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. 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.
