Carmel is our vet assistant and has been working with us since late 2018. She has been working with animals since 2010 and has a love for all of them, big and small. At home, Carmel has two pet rabbits, Krispie and Trix, and a big orange cat, Rupert (who has extra toes: 23 total)! She has recently moved from Calgary and is still adjusting to the cold but loves to spend time outdoors, as well as cross stitching and baking. Carmel one day hopes to have her own herd of goats to call her own.

Dear Clients,

Effective Tuesday March 1st, we will once again be allowing one pet parent to accompany their pet into their appointment. We will continue to allow two family members to attend end of life appointments.

We are happy to accommodate with a curbside appointment should you prefer or if you are feeling under the weather.

Please remember kindness matters! Disrespectful or unkind behaviour toward our team will not be tolerated and may result in refusal of service.
