Please be kind to our staff
We truly are sorry that we are not able to take on new clients, or fit regular clients in for same day appointments, or provide emergency services to those who currently have another vet clinic.
Many people have new pets as a result of Covid-19 ● Many people are moving to our beautiful province because it is a wonderful, friendly, safe place to live ● and many people are unhappy with their current vet, because – like us- they are working at capacity and beyond, and simply cannot fit any more into their days.
There is a worldwide shortage of veterinarians- especially now as we work our way through this pandemic. There are more pets than ever before and we cannot keep up with the demand. The veterinary profession is nearing a crisis.
The suicide rate among veterinarian and veterinary professionals is one of the highest in the country- because we DO care and are SO deeply affected by what we do.
We LOVE animals and want to help and provide the best care possible- every time ● We care about YOU and realize that when your pet is sick or hurt it’s scary and you feel helpless and we are profoundly affected when we cannot help ● We ARE NOT “Just in it for the money” ● We DO NOT just want to “send your pet home to die”
Like you, we CANNOT work for free ● We WILL NOT ignore the health and well-being of our amazing staff ● and we WILL NOT tolerate violent, abusive, or threatening behavior towards them!
Please do not put us in that position
Please be kind to our staff and know that we ARE doing the very best we can.
