I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2016. I grew up horseback riding and always thought I would work with horses - that is until my childhood dog was diagnosed with diabetes and treating her really piqued my interest in small animal medicine. I started working at West Hill Animal Clinic as an assistant and receptionist in 2011, so it felt like returning home to be back again as a veterinarian, rejoining the amazing team in 2017. Areas that interest me the most are ultrasound, parasitology and surgery. My favourite thing about the clinic is the very knowledgeable and close-knit team of people. My first pet was Holly, a Bichon Frise. What I love most about my job is that it never gets boring, there is always something new to learn and new pets and owners to meet! A fun fact about me is that I am always looking for a good adrenaline rush! So far, I have been bungee jumping, skydiving and cage diving with great white sharks. I also enjoy bird watching and cuddling with my cats, Levi and Chandler.
Bad breath (halitosis) in a dog or cat is usually because of poor dental health. Occasionally a dog or cat may have good teeth and still have bad breath in which case the diet is usually the cause. This is relatively rare, however, compared to the likelihood of a dental issue.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective July 6th, 2020 we have made 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 in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 416-282-6621 (appointments ONLY at this number). We will take a history of your pet from outside of your car, if you choose to, we will then allow 1 family member per appointment in the clinic. Once inside you will be directed to an exam room. We have put special measures in place to keep you, your pets and our staff safe.
Technician appointments will still be required to wait in the car for the duration of the appointment.
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.
