Sydenham River Veterinary Office in Wallaceburg, Ontario
Servicing Wallaceburg and surrounding areas.
Attn: Sydenham River Clients
We are all aware of the concerns and rapidly changing situation with COVID-19. Due to the close public contact that our work requires, we have taken necessary measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members. As part of our due diligence, we have decided to consolidate our staff by maintaining all operations at Merritt Animal Hospital and Dresden Veterinary Clinic and have our Sydenham River location open for medication/food pickup ONLY.
Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
The safety of our team members and clients is very important to us. As such, we will continue to follow all provincial health standards by having extensive cleaning protocols, wearing masks and gloves, and practicing physical distancing as much as possible within our teams. We will also:
- Continue our “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive for curbside pickup of food and medication, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us.
- Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method
Merritt and Dresden, also continue to have “closed waiting room” protocols in place for the safety of our staff, clients, and patients. Both locations are available for medical appointments, as well as pick up for food and medications.
Thank you in advance for your understanding, and we hope that you, your family and pets all stay healthy and safe.
– D.M.S Veterinary Team
We offer surgical services such as spaying and neutering and more in-depth surgeries at Dresden Veterinary Clinic; however, we provide the transportation to Dresden and back to Wallaceburg for your pet at no cost.
We have a large vehicle equipped for very secure travelling and will hold kennels for dogs and cats of all sizes. Our staff will take extra special care of your pet from the time you drop them off to the time you pick them up. We will make the experience as least stressful for them as possible. We use the same secure kennels as you would for travelling on an airplane. If you prefer, you can also take your pet to Dresden yourself.
