Exotic Animal Emergency Policy
March 20, 2017
Effective immediately I will no longer be able to offer after hours emergency care to exotic animal patients. In the past I have tried my best to attend these emergencies or at least offer some advice. Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, I have been the only veterinarian in Regina to offer this service. As a result the amount of after hours work has made it difficult for me to be effective at work the following day and has put a strain on my home life. It is simply not possible for me to attend every call, 365 days a year. I do not take this decision lightly; I care a great deal for all my exotic animal patients and hate to think of them in distress or suffering.
If your pet is very ill after hours I recommend you call the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon (1-306-966-7126). They have 24 hour service and have an ICU available for exotic patients. In addition the laboratory that runs blood tests and the Avian and Exotic Specialists are there which will speed the diagnostic process as all of our exotic animal samples need to be sent to outside laboratories. I understand that the travel distance is significant. However, I am confident your exotic pets will receive the best care possible there. The 24 Hour Emergency Care Center in Regina (info below) may provide emergency euthanasia services to exotic patients who are suffering. I will continue to provide emergency service to exotic pets during my regular consulting hours as well as after hours emergency post-surgical care to our patients.
