Cristine

Veterinary Assistant

Cristine jumped into the veterinary field in 2015. After switching out of a Criminology program, she applied for the Veterinary Office and Animal Care program at Douglas College. In March 2016, she joined the Queen's Park Pet Hospital team. She made the switch because she wanted to learn more and better understand her two large breed boys -- Jacobo is a Redbone Coonhound and Blaze is a German Shepherd mix.

As her boys are getting older, preventative medicine undoubtedly caught her eye. For this reason, Queen's Park Pet Hospital is where she wants her career to be. The hospital is mostly known for its Fear Free℠ Certification, but the relationship and trust the team builds with clients and patients is why Cristine loves her job.

If she's not at the hospital or spending time with her boys, you can find her at a tennis court rolling around on her skates.

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 pet.

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.

1. WE CAN SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!

2. SAFETY MEASURES FOR APPOINTMENTS

  • We kindly request that clients continue to wear masks in our hospital for employee and public safety.
  • If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Payment can be processed over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.
