Jocelyn, RVT

Registered Veterinary Technician
I chose the Veterinary field as I have always had an interest in a variety of animal species and enjoy the ability to apply my science background with the addition of client education. I studied at Douglas College in the Veterinary Technology Program. Veterinary medicine is a continually evolving field, and I love the ability to continually develop and learn new information and skills to better improve the lives of animals and forward science for the future. One of my interests is in laboratory pathology and technical skills associated with it. I love the SBVH family and all of the different areas of expertise each individual brings to the hospital. We are a busy hospital, but our ability to provide compassionate care to clients, pets and one another are extremely important to me. Growing up, I was involved in the pipe band community in both Alberta and British Columbia. I have had the opportunity to travel to Scotland to compete at the World Pipe Band Championships, as well as various other highland games across the world.

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

We are not accepting new patients at this time due to higher than normal case-loads, and pet boarding services are suspended until further notice. Thank you for your understanding. 

Note: If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, please let us know when you book your pet’s appointment. As the potential to spread to pets is still relatively unknown, it is possible that your pet could create a risk to other people who may be handling him or her. Whenever possible, please send someone who is not experiencing respiratory symptoms to the appointment with your pet.

The following changes are effective as of March 2nd, 2022:

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. 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out by email at info@southburnabyvethospital.com or by phone at 604-526-0334.
