Brianna South, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician
Brianna always knew from a young age that she wanted to work with animals and has landed herself the perfect role as an RVT. She graduated from Seneca College in 2018 and joined the Champlain family in late 2019. The best part about being an RVT is being able to see very sick or injured animals recuperate with the devotion and care we provide to nurse them back to health.  While it can be challenging at times, it sure pays off! The thing she loves most about being at Champlain Animal Hospital is that it feels more like working with friends rather than co-workers. Brianna has special interests in surgery and anesthesia (making sure our furry friends have the smoothest anesthetic experience possible), with extra certification from the University of Guelph in Advanced Anesthesia and Surgical Pain Management Techniques. Brianna tends to spend her free time enjoying various motorized sports, as well as relaxing at home with her two lovely K9 girls Willow and Athena, as well as her lovely boa Medusa.

Dear Clients,

With the upcoming changes to masking requirements for Ontario, we would like to share our updated protocols.

As a large group working very closely together, our staff will continue to wear face masks to help ensure that we stay healthy and are able to provide the best medical care we can.

It has been so nice to welcome clients back into the clinic. As we ease into reopening, we will continue to keep our doors locked for the time being. If you require assistance, please call (705) 742-4243, or knock on the door and we will be happy to assist you.

Upon arrival for your scheduled appointment or surgery admission, please call to let us know that you are here. The doctor or technician will call you as soon as we are ready for you. At this time, they may ask you for some further information prior to you bringing your pet into the hospital.

We will be continuing to offer curbside pickup for food and medications at this time.

As always, as things change we will continue to update our protocols as we feel necessary. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to call us or email christinep@cahpet.ca
