We are thrilled to announce that The Oaks Veterinary Medical and Emergency Centre has just received its Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS) Level II certification! We are the first in Atlantic Canada to receive this certification and only the second in Canada.
The purpose of the VECCS certification is to recognize emergency hospitals that meet and exceed guidelines published by the VECCS. The organization does this in the hopes of raising the standards in the area of emergency and critical care for pets, while also increasing public and professional awareness in the specialty of veterinary emergency and critical patient care. The application was a rigorous eight-month process and requires 100% compliance in order to achieve accreditation.
There seems to be a common misconception that pets needs to travel to PEI if they are seriously injured or require critical care, when in fact The Oaks Vet is fully equipped, trained and experienced to handle all emergency situations. This new certification is evidence of our commitment to the best equipment, medication, and training. It shows that our hospital is pushing the boundaries of veterinary care.
The Oaks Vet was also the first 24-hour veterinary hospital in the Atlantic provinces. Our purpose-built hospital allows for a centrally located intensive care unit and houses industry leading medical and surgical equipment. We also offer the most advanced diagnostics, with experienced and personable veterinarians and highly trained support staff. We are very excited to be awarded this certification as an internationally recognized emergency and critical care facility. Our hospital is on par with the services offered in any major city in North America, which is a great service to bring to Greater Moncton and Atlantic Canada.
We are prepared to take on any type of emergency at any time of the day! Click below to hear more from our Dr. Chantal Houle!
