Dr. Jamie Burns grew up locally in Norwood, Ontario and has been passionate about veterinary medicine and caring for animals from a young age. After receiving her BSc from the University of Guelph she completed her Veterinary Degree at the Ontario Veterinary College. Her professional interests include emergency medicine and soft tissue surgery.
Outside of work, Dr. Burns enjoys hiking with her husband and Maverick, their Maremma Sheepdog, reading and sports, especially baseball and ultimate Frisbee.
Rabies is one of the oldest and most feared viral infections of all time. Despite having a vaccine available, every year, there are 55,000 human deaths worldwide. Of the 25 human deaths from rabies in Canada, the most recent was in 2012, and all happened after exposure to bats. In Canada, there were 239 cases of animal rabies in 2017 and 183 in 2018.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
