As far back as I can remember, I've been an animal lover. They've always been able to bring a smile to my face, and joy to my heart. After spending a few years soul-searching, I decided to see if a career in veterinary medicine would be right for me. In 2005, I enrolled in the Academy Canada Vet Assistant program and instantly knew I had chosen correctly, taking tests about dog breeds? I couldn't believe my luck! In 2006 I joined my first clinic, and have filled just about every role imaginable since. I've learned something new pretty much every day, and that's one of the many reasons I'm still loving it 12 years later. I joined the clinic in 2013. My biggest interest and deepest passion is educating anyone and everyone on the importance of responsible breeding practices and informed puppy purchasing. My first pet was a little black and white rabbit named Wiggles. What I love about my job is being surrounded by passionate people who fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. I love that you can be having the worst kind of day, and one snuggle from a sweet patient makes it all go away. My favourite thing about Sunrise Animal Hospital is the compassion that pours from everyone who works here. I am 100% obsessed with my best buddy, my perfect Pug, Mabel. She has better outfits than I do, and eats better too!

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, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 709.368.7981. We will take a history of your pet from outside your car, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. Once the examination is finished, the Doctor will either call you or come out to talk to you to discuss the treatment etc for your pet. For those who do not have a mobile phone, an easy knock at the door will work the same way!

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Saturday & Sunday: Closed.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 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 when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Payments for appointments can be taken over the phone by credit card or by e-transfer. E-transfers can be sent to info@sunrise-vet.ca.

Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

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.
