Community Involvement

The St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program

The St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program is a volunteer-based program for dog owners who want to make a difference in the community: Carefully selected dogs and their enthusiastic humans bring comfort, companionship, and distraction to those who are isolated in long term care homes, retirement facilities, and hospitals.  As the program has grown, our therapy dog teams also visit people in different settings including colleges/universities, libraries, nursing homes and various support programming.

Adopt A Senior Program

Instead of doing a gift exchange with our co-workers this year, the Chatham Kent Veterinary Corporation decided to participate in the Chatham Kent adopt a senior program. We collected gifts bought by our staff to donate to seniors living in retirement residences and nursing homes that may not have a whole lot of family  what a great idea, thanks to RVT Kaitlyn for letting is know about this awesome program

Important COVID-19 Update

Currently at this time we are open, and we are still available to see our medical patients.  In order to keep our community and staff as safe as possible  however, we will be practicing "hands free" appointments. Our hospital doors will be locked, but we will have a team member meet you outside and bring your pet into the clinic and pet parents will be asked to standby for a phone consultation with the veterinarian.  We anticipate most appointments to take 30 minutes.  Please contact us for further information.
