Rebecca Foss, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician

Rebecca started her path towards veterinary medicine at a very young age with a band-aide and a stuffed dog. She has always been surrounded by animals growing up--from cats and dogs to hamsters, rabbits and fish. She dabbled in human medicine but decided it wasn’t for her, but medicine was. Rebecca started her education at the University of Guelph, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Animal Biology in 2015. She then focused on becoming an RVT and graduated from St. Lawrence College in 2019. Currently, her passions lie in cytology and anything lab-related, but she is a sucker for puppy cuddles, kitten purrs and old pet faces.

Rebecca started at Champlain in the Spring of 2021 and couldn’t be happier. When Rebecca is not at work she spends her time taking care of her tabby cat Ember, her fishies and her multitude of plants, as well as spending time with family and friends, reading, crocheting and generally being a homebody.

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
