Lauren SanFilippo

Veterinary Assistant / Client Care Representative
Hi, my name is Lauren. I became a member of the receptionist team in late September of 2019. I have a strong passion for all animals and I plan on attending the Veterinary Technician program at Red River College so I can dedicate my life to helping them. I currently share my home with 2 rescued dogs and 3 rescued cats whom I enjoy spending my free time with. I also enjoy travelling and exploring new places.

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.

- Your dedicated team at St. Vital Veterinary Hospital
