What's New?

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and we wish you all the best in 2019! Fortunately for the veterinarians (and all of you!) the animals were kind to the vets on call over the holidays by staying healthy and out of trouble for the most part, so the vets got to spend most of the time with family and friends.

Starting in January, Dr. Allison Doherty will be off on maternity leave. We wish her and her family all the best and will keep you posted on how her new addition is doing and when she will be available for appointments! We have a new staff member that has joined the PPVS team. You'll see Bridgitte out on the road with the vets as a veterinary assistant. She comes to us with extensive horse experience and we are excited to have her!

We are going to celebrate animal dental health month again this February. In honour of this, we will be offering no mobile fee on all dentistry appointments using the powerfloat for the month of February. For more information about this or to book an appointment, please call the office at 905-982-1243.

We are offering our Equine Wellness Plans again this year! The choices include our standard package with optional add-ons that covers the vaccination and dentistry needs of companion and show horses alike. We also have two other plans, an Equine Geriatric Wellness Plan and an Equine Neonatal Wellness Plan. In the coming weeks we will be sending out more information about these programs via email, and will post everything on our Facebook page and website.

We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of a new ultrasound machine, which will primarily be used for equine reproduction and abdominal and thoracic imaging.

Good news! Just in time for calving season, we have found out that Vitamin A&D will be available again. We should have it on the shelves sometime in the next week. We are currently unable to acquire any short-acting oxytetracycline (Oxyvet 100 LP, Oxymycine LP, etc...) as it is on an indefinite backorder. Please feel free to speak with a veterinarian if you need an alternative medication recommendation to treat one of your animals.

The veterinarians have been hiding from the cold by doing some continuing education recently. In November, Dr. Brad McLaughlin attended the Ontario Association of Bovine Practitioners Fall Continuing Education meeting where he primarily learned about various topics related to bovine surgery. In December, Dr. Rachel Busato attended the American Association of Equine Practitioners Annual Convention in San Francisco. She took in lectures on podiatry, lameness, reproduction, anesthesia and medicine.
