Exotic Animal Emergency Policy

March 20, 2017

Dear Clients;

 

Effective immediately I will no longer be able to offer after hours emergency care

to exotic animal patients. In the past I have tried my best to attend these emergencies

or at least offer some advice. Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, I have been the only

veterinarian in Regina to offer this service. As a result the amount of after hours work

has made it difficult for me to be effective at work the following day and has put a strain

on my home life. It is simply not possible for me to attend every call, 365 days a year. I

do not take this decision lightly; I care a great deal for all my exotic animal patients and

hate to think of them in distress or suffering.

If your pet is very ill after hours I recommend you call the Western College of Veterinary

Medicine in Saskatoon (1-306-966-7126). They have 24 hour service and have an ICU

available for exotic patients. In addition the laboratory that runs blood tests and the

Avian and Exotic Specialists are there which will speed the diagnostic process as all of

our exotic animal samples need to be sent to outside laboratories. I understand that the

travel distance is significant. However, I am confident your exotic pets will receive the

best care possible there. The 24 Hour Emergency Care Center in Regina (info below) may

provide emergency euthanasia services to exotic patients who are suffering. I will continue

to provide emergency service to exotic pets during my regular consulting hours as well as

after hours emergency post-surgical care to our patients.
