I love animals and always wanted to work with animals since I was three. I graduated in June 2016 from the Veterinary Medical Assistant program at Lakeland College in Vermilion, Alberta. With my program, most of the clinics in Edmonton only offered positions in reception and this clinic was the only one that would allow me to be in the back, working with the animals. I joined the Mission Ridge Animal Hospital team in June 2016. I am interested in all areas of the veterinary industry. My first pet was a BonBon (French Poodle), Snowball (Domestic Shorthair). What I love most about my job is that I work with animals. My favourite thing about the clinic is the hours are nice and the staff are friendly and helpful if you have any questions. About three years ago, I was working at a doggy daycare and got attacked by a dog. I had to get over 150 stitches in my face and four in my arm. Three weeks later, I went back to work and was in the back with the dogs. It gave me new respect for animals and enjoy working with animals so much more.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective Monday, July 13, 2020 we have made some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, 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 in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 780.458.3833. We will take a history of your pet from outside of your car, if you choose to, we will then allow 1 family member with a mask per appointment in the clinic. Once inside you will be directed to an exam room. We have put special measures in place to keep you, your pets and our staff safe.
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".
