I joined Killarney Cat Hospital in 2014. My special area of interest is in veterinary medicine. My favourite thing about the clinic is how it's more of a family environment. I come to work I'm happy and look forward to my day! My first pet was a hamster named Shea. What I love most about my job is that I get be part of something good, even though I only help out with small things like cleaning. I enjoy knowing that my job has a little bit more meaning. I would never know if I liked something until I tried it!
Fun fact about myself is that I have taken the veterinarian summer camp twice with the University of Calgary. I have a two and a half-year-old hamster named Luna, which is the longest living hamster I have ever had! When I was younger, my mother and I were hamster breeders. I have had a passion for the art of veterinary medicine, ever since I could speak and have always wanted to become a veterinarian. I hope to open up a practice, hopefully on Vancouver Island when I'm older. As a hobby, I enjoy musical theatre. I have done a summer camp twice and also for junior high, I attended an art school, where I performed at Vertigo Theatre twice (years 8 & 9) and the Jubilee Auditorium twice (also year 8 & 9.) I am a crazy fun loving person and absolutely love the opportunity that I was given in being able to work here!
All cats, but indoor cats especially, need enrichment and mental stimulation. Enrichment can increase activity (which can help with weight control) and prevent many behavioural issues related to low mental stimulation (things like inappropriate litter box usage, anxiety, aggression and attention-seeking).
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the 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".
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.
