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.

We are currently open and welcoming clients into the hospital. At this time, masks are optional, not mandatory, but we ask that you do not come in to the clinic if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, or have a known exposure.

Please continue to check back for updates, as the situation can change, and we will adjust our protocols accordingly.
