When I was young, I always wanted to work with animals. While travelling, I had the opportunity to work on a farm with 24 horses and a variety of other animals. That helped me decided to make it a priority to include animals as part of my work. I joined the clinic in November 2017. I enjoy working with people and animals, and this job is the best of both worlds. Being a pet owner myself, I understand the ups and downs an owner can go through and I love being there for the exciting times and can empathize when it's tough. I love that Killarney Cat Hospital is a feline clinic. I have had cats all my life and I love how quirky they are. I love animals in general, but I am more familiar with cats and how they behave. I really enjoy their personalities.
My very first cat was Peewee, he was an extremely mischievous grey tabby. He got into a lot of trouble and at the time I don't think my parents were too fond. Now after many years, he is the most memorable and talked about pet, because he gave us so many good stories (including one about him eating a hole in the Thanksgiving turkey). A couple fun facts about me; I have a background in Technical Theatre, as well I love going axe throwing.
Indoor cats 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.
