I was born and raised in the Port Hope area. I moved to Kingston in 1997 to attend St. Lawrence College and graduated from their 3-year Veterinary Technician Program. After a short work experience in Toronto, I moved back to Kingston and have been working as a full-time technician for the Kingston Veterinary Clinic since 2000.
I am the proud owner of a 6-year-old lab Chloe, and three geriatric cats: Mickey, Charlie and Mags. I enjoy being active and spending time outdoors running, hiking, snowshoeing and camping.
Have you been to the dentist and received local freezing? If so, then you have had a dental nerve block. Most dental procedures produce strong sensory stimuli to the point that it affects the amount of general anesthetic required and a painful recovery.
With the recent increase of COVID-19 cases in our region, we are temporarily moving back to curbside service. Effective Tuesday, December 14th we are not allowing clients in exam rooms with their pets. Here is what you can expect:
Come in to let us know that you're here for your appointment. 2 clients will be allowed at a time in our reception area for food and med pick up and to inform us that they are here for their appointment.
Please wait in your car after letting us know you've arrived. Once you have notified us that you are here for your appointment we ask that you wait in your car and we will come out and collect your furry family member for their appointment.
The doctor will call once the appointment is done and you can then come back to the reception desk to take care of the invoice and collect your furry family member.
Face masks are required when interacting with our team and entering the building. Please sanitze your hands if you come inside.
Food and medication pick-ups inside. If there are more than 2 people in our waiting area, we ask that you wait outside until there is sufficient space.
Washrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.
These measures are temporary and we will reassess as time goes on. Please keep a lookout for any further updates from our team. Together, we can all help in stopping the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us at (613) 542-7337.
