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

In order to keep our community and team as safe as possible, we will be practicing “hands free” or “socially distanced” appointments.  Our hospital doors will be locked, when you contact us over the phone we will give you clear instructions on how to proceed for your appointment.  All food or medication pick ups will be done “curbside”.  Due to staff restrictions at this time local emergency care from midnight (12am)  till 8am is being referred to Walker Road Animal Hospital 519-972-9000 or London Regional Emergency Hospital at 519-432-3300.
