I graduated in 2002 from York University. I majored in Psychology, with a focus on animal behaviour and evolutionary psychology. I have worked in veterinary clinics for 21 years in different roles and have many years of experience in customer service. I have always loved animals, especially cats, and always visualized myself working with animals, as well as in a clerical and customer service position. This made being a client care representative in an animal hospital, the perfect job for me! I have been working at West Hill Animal Clinic since 2007. My favourite thing about the clinic is the wonderful people I work with. My first pets were three cats, Shadow, Sylvie, and Boo. I love helping clients help their pets, and also helping our clients have a positive experience when they come into the clinic, whether it be the first time they come in with a puppy or a kitten, or when it is time to say goodbye. Fun fact about me is I share my life with my wonderful husband and my two beautiful little girls. I love gardening, crafts and reading. I am allergic to dogs and cats.
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.
