July – September 2020

The Roncesvalles Animal Hospital team is putting on their helmets to ride for Farley’s. Laura, Dianna and Disha will be peddling 25 km in September 2020 to raise funds to help pets in need.

Unfortunately, we see too many pets not getting the treatment they need, and with whatever you can donate, we can help a lot.  Alternately, join our team and raise funds along side us, help pets in need and enjoy the ride.

Thank you for all your support and stay safe.

In September, three of our team members will be taking part in the Farley Foundation bike ride to raise funds for veterinary care for owners who are in financial difficulty, especially in cases such as emergencies and unexpected costs. When you donate to the Farley Foundation you are helping an owner keep their furry family member happy and healthy and helping a fur baby receive the veterinary care they need. Please consider donating to us. Any small amount goes a long way.

We would like to thank our Receptionist Jenny, her partner and mother for being involved while on leave from work by making masks for hospital staff that are close to their heart.  They have made 1300 of their goal of 2000 masks. We are very proud of you all for the support you have given your community.

A great big Thank You to Sarah, our Merck sales rep, for having a surprise Pizza Day for us.  She called and had pizza delivered to the clinic just in time for lunch.

Thank you very much Sarah.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, our Local Hospital, St. Joseph’s Health Center approached us for some help with supplying PPE to their front line workers. We were glad to donate a few boxes of gloves to keep our healthcare teams as safe as possible.   As a community we need to try our best to support each other when we can, especially those risking their lives for us.

An article with 680 news, Dr. Hana Schwarz states;

*** DEEMED ESSENTIAL SERVICE ****  WORKING AS DROP OFF APPOINTMENTS ONLY, CLOSED AND LOCKED DOOR POLICY

One Toronto vet said she’s desperately hoping her west-end clinic will make the list. Dr. Hana Schwarz said she has seen no drop in the need for her services since the pandemic brought large swaths of Canadian society to a standstill last week. She said it’s vital to allow offices like hers to remain open, noting that there is no true alternative to specialized animal care even when it comes to prescribing routine medication. “About 75 to 80 per cent of the supply that we will prescribe … are veterinary prescriptions that may not be available at a pet store or a regular human pharmacy,” she said. Closing community clinics also risks forcing members of the public to put themselves at needless risk by using public transit to access scarce emergency animal care resources, she added.
