This island girl was born and raised in Ladysmith BC. Gwynne graduated from NAIT-Fairview Campus in 2006 as a Registered Veterinary Technologist but has worked at Prevost since January 2001. She has always had animals in her life - from hamsters to horses - so it seemed the right choice to work in the animal health field. She has a cat Vivianne-Cindy and a Jack Russel Terrier Mia.
Written by Margie Scherk, DVM, Dipl. ABVP (Feline) -- During this period of change brought on by COVID-19, we have had to learn a new set of rules. Through hand hygiene, greater physical awareness, and social distancing, we have, at least as I write this, helped to flatten the curve in British Columbia.
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!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm Saturday: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
