A Vernon veterinarian clinic is being recognized for the care it provides four-legged friends.
Creekside Animal Clinic has been presented with the 2015 Veterinarian of the Year Award by the B.C. SPCA.
“I am constantly amazed and humbled by the outstanding staff, volunteers, partners, supporters and others who help us help the province’s most vulnerable animals,” said Craig Daniell, SPCA chief executive officer.
The clinic consistently offers a high level of service for injured and sick animals in the SPCA’s care while providing discounts to ensure that as many animals as possible receive the life-saving care they need.
Dr. Murray Flock, Dr. Brian McOnie and their team also support local SPCA events, including the Paws for a Cause walk.
In 2014, Creekside hosted the first-ever spay/neuter blitz days offered by the Vernon SPCA, reserving two days to spay and neuter animals belonging to low-income families.
The program was so successful it was held again this year.
