Thank you Clappison Community! Stride for Strays Follow Up

Our very first 5km Dog Walk Fundraiser for Animal Adoption of Flamborough – Stride for Strays was an overwhelming success. The weather was gorgeous, although a bit windy. We had a great turn-out at both the walk and the Open House.

We surpassed our goal and raised almost $6000!

At the top of my list of appreciation are all of our clients and residents of the Clappison Community who donated to the cause as well as participated in the walk. We were very happy to see everyone and their dogs enjoying themselves.

A very special thanks goes to Bonnie Adlam. Bonnie donated $2500 on behalf of her sister, Sandy Ward, who passed away from cancer last year. Sandy was an avid cat lover and would be very happy to see the work that is done for the stray cats by Clappison Animal Hospital and Animal Adoptions of Flamborough.

What lies beneath... the Benefits of Dental Radiographs

There are many signs of dental disease such as tartar, gingivitis, bleeding, not eating. Sometimes your veterinarian can see a tooth that’s loose or that the enamel is damaged. The tricky part is that teeth are like little icebergs and much of the tooth is below the gum line.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 905.689.8005. We will open the door and bring you and your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We ask 1 client per pet please. Once the examination is finished, the Doctor will either call you or come out to talk to you to discuss the treatment etc for your pet. For those who do not have a mobile phone, an easy knock at the door will work the same way!

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. The animal hospital is still OPEN with the following hours: Monday- Friday: 8:00am - 6pm, Saturday: 9:00am - 1:00pm, & Closed on Sundays.

4. Country Tails Doggie Daycare and our Grooming Salon are closed until further notice.

5. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

6. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

7. Online consultations are now available! If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.

8. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
