Animal Care Attendant
I am an ACA at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital and I work as a kennel assistant. I decided to go into the veterinary field for many reasons. When I was little, I always wanted to become a veterinarian and I still hope to pursue that dream. I care about animals very much and I feel that it is important to take care of them and make sure they are happy and healthy. I have not yet graduated, but when I am graduated from high school, I plan to become a veterinarian. I joined the Van Isle clinic starting as a volunteer on March 1st, but since then I have been hired as an employee and started on July 6th. I am interested in all kinds of veterinary medicine, but I am sure I will find something I am more interested in, as my time here proceeds. My first pet was an orange tabby cat named Mr. Kitty. What I love most about my job is the aspect of being able to help the animals that come in for help. Whether I am helping with a nail clipping or a recovery for a surgery, it feels emotionally rewarding to be able to help out the animals that come in. My favourite thing about the clinic is the great people I work with. When I started volunteering at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital, my co-workers made me feel included and their overall attitude at the clinic was amazing. A fun fact about myself is that I collect vinyl records!

Dear Clients,

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, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

As you can imagine, we have a significant backlog of surgeries and wellness/vaccine exams to catch up on and we will be working hard over the next several weeks to do just that. We want to thank everyone in advance for your patience while we work through this. Although restrictions have been lifted, our health and safety protocols have not. It is important we continue to follow the guidelines set out by Worksafe BC and social distance our large team as much as possible. This means although we can offer these elective services, we are doing much fewer during the day then we were pre-COVID.

2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

We are very excited to welcome you back into our lobby! We have put some important safety measures in place to help keep our clients and our team safe.

3. ONLINE ORDERS

The use of our online store for easy ordering, payment and delivery of our pet's food, flea and tick medications. Orders over $100 can be delivered to your home for free! CLICK HERE

4. OPERATING HOURS

During the first 8 weeks of COVID, we were operating as a 24-hour facility to better serve our community and to maintain social distancing within our team. However, as the COVID-19 situation changes, so do we!

Our team of doctors felt it was important to get back to performing your pet's much needed regular services. In order to do so safely, we had to once again change the way we do business. 

As such, effective October 6, 2020, we will no longer be available for after-hours, on call services between midnight and 7:00 am. After-hours emergency care will be referred to Central Island Veterinary Emergency Hospital between the hours of midnight - 7:00 am. They can be reached at 250-933-0913.

We will continue to be available until midnight for your call-in, after hours needs.

Our regular hours of operation remain the same:

Monday - Friday: 8:00 am - 8:00 pm

Saturday & Sunday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!

- Your dedicated team at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital
