In the wake of recent news and client questions, we wanted to prepare some information regarding how we are monitoring updates on COVID-19 regarding our pet patients, as well as what precautions we are taking to protect the people in our community.


COVID-19 has not currently been linked with disease in companion animals. Although the virus has been isolated from one dog (to date), multiple international and domestic health organizations have indicated that companion animals are not considered at risk for contracting or spreading the virus at this time.

That being said, it would be sensible to increase hand-washing (especially after touching your pet and before eating or touching your face) and monitor your pet and human family closely for any signs of illness.

More information about animals and COVID-10 is available here.


From our opening day, we have taken pride in our infection control. As part of this, our hands are washed and all surfaces cleaned with appropriate disinfectants between every patient. We have reviewed our disinfection protocols to ensure they follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and will be increasing how frequently we sanitize surfaces, door handles, and our non-clinical areas.

We have always had hand sanitizer available in reception, and hand-washing facilities in every exam room - we encourage you to use these facilities regularly.


We want you to feel comfortable visiting us, and to know that the health of our clients and our team is just as important as the health of our patients. If you feel unwell or have a fever, we encourage you to call us and reschedule your appointments.



Stay well,


The Team At

We are flying through the first portion of 2020 and quickly approaching our one year anniversary in May.


It's crazy to think that some dog-walking chats between Jen and I have turned into a fully fledged small animal clinic. Every day is a joy, getting to do the job we love and to spend our time with some amazing people - both staff and clients.

Our days are busy (which is fantastic), and our team is positive and dedicated (which is even better!). We have been so fortunate to have received so much support.


Getting to this point has us reflecting on how far we have come since our first few weeks, bumbling through new practice ownership. We started with no paper towel dispensers, empty cupboards in every exam room and an ordering delay on microchips and Rabies tags...


Within our first few months, we stocked up on supplies and organized our workspaces. We got to know each other and our workflow. With the help of a truly inspiring team of people, we now are well set-up to perform most of the services we intend on offering:



* Vaccination and preventive medicine *


* Dental Procedures in a dedicated dental suite *

(including dental x-ray & surgical extractions )


* Full soft tissue surgery in our surgery suite *


* In-house diagnostics *


* Separate dog and cat/exotic waiting areas and wards *


* Home visits for end-of-life care *


* Urgent care during our office hours *




Through this blog, we are hoping to share some insight into our clinic and our team, help with some education posts, and connect with our clients and community.


We are so excited to be a part of Dexter, and we cannot wait to see you!


- Dr. Anna
