Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
I have always had an interest in veterinary medicine and even applied to the AVC. It didn't work out for me, but when I saw the opportunity to come work at Sunrise Animal Hospital, I jumped at it. I know it was the right decision, I love coming to work every day. I started working at the clinic in June 2013. I enjoy learning every day. Medicine is always changing and I find that we, as an industry, are always trying to find better ways to improve health care for our clients and our patients. There are so many CE opportunities for us. It's in our best interest and the best interest of our clients to take advantage of as many learning sessions as possible.
My first pet was a mixed breed pup named Shanna. I really love helping our clients and patients feel better. That may be through the diagnosis and treatment of a disease process, an acute condition or simply at the end of the pet's life. I feel that in veterinary medicine, you need to be here for the owners, as much as you are for their pet, who is really another family member. Compassion and understanding, that's what I love about my job. We have a great team environment. We work very closely together and although we have a large staff, everyone feels pretty close. Lending a helping hand to our teammates and colleagues, that's my favourite thing! I am a huge hockey fan and play both ice and ball hockey, go Leafs!
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. We are now allowing a limited number of clients in our clinic, however, we still encourage clients to stay in their cars where possible for annual exams, vaccines, wellness exams etc. 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, 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.
Please discuss with the doctor when called during your appointment time if you wish to come into the building. This may not always be possible as there will be a limited number of clients in the building at one time as proper disinfection of exam rooms will have to be completed between appointments.
If you are coming into the building, an assistant will come to get you and your pet and escort you to the exam room.
Clients are required to use disinfection stations upon entering the building
Masks are to be worn at all times while in the clinic and social distancing must be strictly adhered to in our exam rooms.
If you have been ill with fever, headache, shortness of breath, trouble breathing, flu like symptoms or have travelled in the last two weeks, we kindly ask that you not enter our facility.
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.
