Our Pledge for Compassionate Care
As you may be aware, a veterinarian has recently had his license temporarily suspended due to cruelty to the animals in his care. The College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO) suspended him for 10 months and have since reduced it to 6 as he has agreed to take a course.
In light of this unfortunate event, we at myanimalhospital.ca assure you that this is an isolated case. People become veterinarians because of their love and compassion for animals, small and large alike. Veterinarians across Ontario are passionate about providing stellar care for your animals and, more often than not, become close to the animals in their care. We as a profession do not condone the abhorrent actions of the veterinarian in question, who is, thankfully, an anomaly.
Furthermore, Veterinary Hospitals, along with staff members, are not satisfied with the punishment levied by the CVO. We contacted the CVO and made our feelings clear that a 10 month suspension is not sufficient to ensure animals in this veterinarian’s care will be free from harm. Be reassured that, as veterinarians, we take our job of caring for animals very seriously, as we know you do as well. Your pet’s health and well-being are not only our main goal. We strive to ensure your pet’s social, emotional and environmental needs are met both in our hospitals and at home.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you, our valued clients, for trusting us with your pets’ care and will continue to work hard to provide your pets with superior care. Your pets are your family and we love to see them live a happy and healthy life with their loving families!
