I got into veterinary medicine because of a fascination with and appreciation for animals. The diversity of patients that walk through the door makes every day a learning opportunity. From preventative medicine to surgery, all aspects of the field interest me. Whether big or small, feathered or furred, I will happily see all patients. I plan to continue to learn new surgical, diagnostic and medical techniques to better care for the beloved pets of St. John's.
After work you can find me on the basketball court, exploring Newfoundland's rugged beauty or taking in the local music and food scene!
Thank you for your care and concern for all our pets over the last 9 years! We have had…
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 8, 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".
