To our referring veterinarians,

The Premier announced today that as of December 26th at 12:01am, the entire province will be going into lockdown. A lockdown still permits the provision of Veterinary Services, therefore we will continue to offer a broad range of services. However, we will monitor caseload to ensure we have the resources to continue to operate. We appreciate your patience during this time.

Our telehealth platform is operational and we will continue to see as many cases through this means as possible.   

As always our team is here to help you with your patients through phone consultations.  We hope this support will be valuable until we can see your patients directly. 

The OVC Health Sciences Centre continues to take precautions to protect our staff, graduate students and clients from exposure to the COVID-19 virus and steps to manage our resources.  

Thank you 

Dr. Stephanie Nykamp, Associate Dean Clinical Program 



How is the Ontario Veterinary College and University of Guelph helping our human healthcare partners in this time of need:

The Ontario Veterinary College is completing an inventory of items available that may be of assistance (masks, gloves, swabs, testing reagents). We have also made the local public health unit aware of equipment we have that may be helpful (ventilators, high flow oxygen, etc.).

The University of Guelph is working closely with the Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health Unit to coordinate and properly channel all equipment and supply needs.

OVC is happy to be able to provide this support to the front line healthcare teams caring for people during this time of incredible effort and need.
