The Veterinary Oath guides the principles and practices of Canadian Veterinarians:
“As a member of the veterinary medical profession, I solemnly swear that I will use my specific knowledge and skills for the benefit of society.
I will strive to promote animal health and welfare, relieve animal suffering, protect the health of the public and environment, and advance comparative medical knowledge.
I will practice my profession conscientiously, with dignity, and in keeping with the principles of veterinary medical ethics.
I will strive continuously to improve my professional knowledge and competence and to maintain the highest professional and ethical standards for myself and the profession.”
Our team members recognize the importance of the world around us and are dedicated to finding solutions to lessen our impact on the earth and to creating a better place to live for all forms of life.
We believe so strongly in helping the environment, that one of the six Core Values that we agreed upon to guide our daily activities is just that- The ENVIRONMENT.
As such we have created and adopted policies that focus on waste reduction, recycling efforts, reduction of our carbon footprint, and utilization of environmentally friendly products whenever and wherever possible throughout our hospital.
Outside the hospital, we have engaged in various activities to help improve our community and will strive to be a presence in environmental protective efforts every day.
