Kim Cavanaugh, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician, Certified Canine Rehab Tech

Kim is no stranger to us, we were thrilled to finally join forces with her in our transition in 2017. In addition to being a highly knowledgeable RVT, she is also a certified canine rehab technician (CCRT) and provides all of our rehabilitation patients with excellent ongoing care, this includes everything from post-operative TPLO care to aiding older animals with their mobility, through a variety of modalities, including massage, laser therapy, muscle conditioning exercises and hydrotherapy.

“From as young as I can remember, I had been bringing home animals to save. It just seemed natural to go into the industry. The agricultural college was my home for 3 yrs back in the early 1990’s. I have been a registered full-time tech for 22 yrs now.

An area of the veterinary industry that interests me the most is canine rehabilitation. As a certified canine rehab technician, I have a unique skill to help furry patients feel better. My favourite thing about the clinic is the progressive, forward-thinking of the veterinarians and peers.”

In addition to her work with rehabilitation, in her spare time, Kim also revels in canine training and behaviour with her Certified Therapy dog, TeeJay and her other dogs Higynx and senior love, Wally.

Everyone is very friendly and helpful. My nervous cat was handled with care and kept relaxed throughout his visit. They…

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 902.461.0951. We will take a history of your pet over the phone, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. Once the examination is finished, we will call to discuss our recommended treatment plan over the phone and then return to your vehicle with your pet. Please ensure your pet has a properly fitted collar or is in a secure carrier. Please remove any additional clothing or blankets prior to our staff handling our patients to minimize risk to our team.

2. We are still OPEN but are now working in two shifts with reduced hours, reduced staff numbers and a need to close for extensive cleaning between shifts. Tuesday to Friday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

3. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

4. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus. You may see our team members wearing additional protective gear when interacting with our clients and patients.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
