Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians - OAVT

This October is Canada’s 4th annual RVT Month and together with the entire country, we are celebrating our Registered Veterinary Technicians. With formal education in dozens of areas within veterinary medicine, RVTs help ensure that patients receive the care they need, clients are properly informed and comforted, and that teammates are supported in their respective roles.

The Ontario Associate of Veterinary Technicians posted this video created at the recent OAVT Conference in March. The question that was asked was "What is an RVT?"

In honour of the first day of RVT Month, we thought we'd start with something simple: what is an RVT? Back at our OAVT Conference in March, dozens of RVTs stopped by our video booth - and here are some of the responses when they were asked how they explain what an RVT is. (See someone you know in the video? Tag them below!) #RVTMonth

ADOPT A LESS-ADOPTABLE PET WEEK - FEATURED PETS: CHESTER & SPOOKER (Animal Adoptions of Flamborough)

Chester & Spooker are a bonded pair of 12 year old cats. Chester is tabby and white, and Spooker is a solid charcoal grey. Both cats are neutered males and were previously declawed.
They are a very lovable pair who were surrendered to us due to a change in their family's living situation. They are sweet, friendly and playful boys and can be picked up. Spooker is a big boy who is quite shy at first and will need time to become comfortable so that you can see his lovely personality. He is treat motivated. Chester is diabetic, and is on special food and insulin injections. He is very easy to give the insulin shots to, and is used to having his glucose reading taken twice daily. He is stable on his current regimen.
They would be wonderful companions to someone with a quiet home and a schedule that is regular enough to maintain Chester's specific eating and insulin needs. They are wonderful boys!
If you are interested in finding out more about Chester and Spooker please contact Animal Adoptions of Flamborough at 905-689-7801

Some friendly reminders! 😃😺🐾😄🐾🐶😃

Please remember to wear a face mask when you bring your pet for his/her scheduled appointment. The mask should cover your nose and mouth. This is for staff and client safety as we will need to approach you in order to take your pet’s leash or carrier and transfer them inside the clinic.
😷😷😷
Please bring your cell phone to your appointment and call the clinic at (905) 689 – 8005 to check in when you arrive. Please keep your phone with you while your pet is inside and keep the ring tone turned on so the veterinarian can reach you to discuss your pet’s health and answer any questions you may have. 📱📱📱
Please remain in our parking area once your pet has been brought inside the clinic for their appointment. The doctor will call you shortly and begin your consult.🚗🚗🚗

ADOPT A LESS-ADOPTABLE PET WEEK - FEATURED PET: BENJAMIN (Animal Adoptions of Flamborough)

Benjamin Button is a beautiful, sweet tempered 3 year old neutered male Seal Point Himalayan cat, who loves people. Benjamin has a fabulous personality – he loves to be picked up and be petted, enjoys being groomed and wants to be around his people. He is a lovely gentle being, who spends much of his time in windows or up on cat trees where he can watch the world. Benjamin should be fine living in a home with other cats, as although he doesn’t tend to interact with the other cats at the shelter, he gets along fine with them.
Benjamin has immune mediated atrophy of his anal sphincter. This condition makes it difficult for him to express his stools effectively and occasionally a small amount of stool may escape him. He needs an environment where these “accidents” can be handled. He does usually use his litterbox, but these fallen stools that can happen elsewhere generally are firm and easy to clean up. His stool may need to occasionally be manually expressed. He sometimes needs to wear a soft cone to help keep him clean. His long hair also needs to be kept shaved to help keep him both clean and healthy. He enjoys his spa days!
To help him manage his condition Benjamin eats a special diet of Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Fiber Response dry food (he is not fond of wet food). He takes Restorolax (a stool softener), mixed with water twice a day as well as Prednisolone cream rubbed onto his ear once daily. Benjamin is a very relaxed boy and takes his medications like a champ. Benjamin’s food and medication are affordably priced on a monthly basis.
With this proper food, medication and handling, his condition can be well managed and Benjamin Button could be a wonderful companion for many years to come!

The third week in September has been designated as ADOPT A LESS-ADOPTABLE PET WEEK. During this week, animal shelters and rescue groups raise awareness about the benefits of adopting pets that tend to get overlooked or passed over.

Big black dogs. FIV+ cats. Senior pets. Special needs animals. Many factors can make a pet seem “less adoptable.”

Senior pets are generally passed over at shelters. A common misconception is that senior pets will need a lot of veterinary care. However older pets don’t necessarily have costly medical problems. Seniors make loving companions, they are already house trained, they are generally more mellow that puppies and kittens and have already moved through the destructive/chewing phase of life.

Pets with special needs don’t always require a lot of specialized home care or expensive veterinary care. Their condition may be easily manageable with regular veterinary check ups, simple medication or just a specialized diet. If you’re willing and able to give a special needs pet a home, you can count on having a loyal and loving friend.

AUTUMN PARASITE PREVENTION

With the cooler weather comes new activities to enjoy with your pets like hiking, camping and biking. But don’t forget that summer parasites continue to be a concern and may even increase through the autumn.

Autumn is a major time for exposure to ticks. Lower temperatures can cause ticks to seek warmth away from brushy and wooded areas like in the foundations of a house. And those lovely piles of fall leaves are a lot of fun to play in but they are also great tick hiding places.

Fleas may have laid eggs inside the house and these are often stimulated to hatch when we turn on the furnace for the first time. Flea eggs are sensitive to heat and vibration and owners are often surprised to see a hatch out in the early fall.

Be sure to continue your pet’s flea and tick prevention through October and November!

September is Animal Pain Awareness Month.

Animal pain awareness begins with understanding that not all pain is obvious, and it certainly isn’t “just getting old” or “starting to slow down”. Signs of acute pain may be more obvious—pets may try to bite you or scratch you if you touch the area that’s painful. But signs of chronic pain may be less obvious and can be easily overlooked.

Our pets can’t describe their pain, so we need to know how to observe signs of discomfort and seek early intervention.

The best part about diagnosing the cause of pain is that your vet can then determine the best course of action to manage it safely and effectively. Do not give your pet over-the-counter NSAIDS or other pain relievers. Many pain relievers that are safe for human use are toxic or even fatal to dogs and cats. Always consult with your veterinarian before giving any medications.

Clappison Animal Hospital has continued to work with a closed reception area for the last 7 months. This decision was made because our indoor space is limited preventing us from maintaining safe social distance for our clients. With this in mind pets will continue to come inside the clinic for their scheduled appointments while clients will wait in their vehicles and the veterinarian will complete the consult by phone.

We do allow a maximum of 2 family members inside the clinic for compassionate reasons during end of life care. We will request that you sanitize your hands when you enter the building and wear a mask covering both nose and mouth for the duration of the appointment. Please respect the physical barriers in place in the reception area and follow the signage directing you to the EXIT door.

We are reassessing the situation on a weekly basis so please continue to follow our Facebook posting for updates to our operating procedures.

On behalf of the Clappison Animal Hospital staff, thank you for your on-going patience and understanding! And a special thanks to our diligent staff who have continued to work within the new COVID protocols so the hospital can remain open and provide our patients with quality medical care.

I attended a trivia night fundraiser on Saturday night, in support of the Myotonic Dystrophy foundation. Our group didn't win the trivia competition, but I did win this huge cat treat basket, donated by Clappison Animal Hospital! https://www.clappisonvet.com The cats were impatient to get to their goodies, when I got home and the boys (Maine Coons) each managed to cram themselves into the cat bed. Big shout out to Clappison Animal Hospital! Thank you for your very generous donation and support of the Myotonic Dystrophy foundation.
