Victoria Dickson

Registered Veterinary Technician
I have lived with, volunteered, and worked with animals my whole life, and have loved every moment of it, which eventually led me to my career as a registered veterinary technician. I have done drug testing on racehorses, volunteered at the Canadian Blood Bank, continue to volunteer at the trap/neuter/release clinics held at the Toronto Humane Society, as well as worked at various stables, zoo's, and hospitals/clinics. I graduated from Sheridan College Institute of Science and Technology in 2013 with high honours. I joined the Annex Animal Hospital (AAH) in the winter of 2013. I particularly enjoy ensuring patient care and comfort and I have a special interest in diagnostics and animal behaviour. I fondly remember my first pets which were Grandma Willow the brown tabby and Mustard the orange tabby. My job allows me to reach out to animals in need of help, medical care, and affection, which I do so with love in my heart. My favourite thing about being a part of the family at the AAH is our constant vigilance to learn and grow towards maintaining the highest standard of medical care, as well as emotional care for all of our furry patients.  I am the AAH's Feline Advocate, which means I ensure cat/kittens have the least stressful appointment possible, as well as provide information on optimal cat care. I have two cats of my own, Luna and Boo, as well as a Chaco Golden Knee tarantula named Fluffy.

*NEW CLIENTS AND NEW PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!*

As we approach the holiday season, please note our holiday hours:

December 24: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
December 25/26/27: Closed
December 31: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
January 1 and 2: Closed

Please order your pet's prescriptions and pet foods early during the holiday season to avoid delays. We require one week's notice for prescription refills. Our front door is currently open for picking up pre-ordered food and medications only. If you prefer not to come inside, please call upon arrival and we will be happy to bring your order outside.

Our veterinarians are currently seeing all patients by appointment ONLY. We are currently operating with both curbside and in office appointments. We have limited capacity to accommodate indoor appointments but please let us know your preference at the time of booking and we will do our very best to accommodate your request. Please note, for safety reasons, you will be asked to wait behind a clear screen while speaking with the veterinarian. Your pet will be examined by the veterinarian while one of our assistants holds them. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these appointments take a little longer than normal.  

How do curbside / closed-door appointments work?
Please come to the back door for your appointment and call 416-537-3128 upon arrival. A veterinarian will speak with you over the phone and a veterinary assistant will come out to collect your pet for an examination. After examining your pet, the doctor will follow-up on the phone with their findings and recommendations. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pets. Please let us know in advance if they have any special needs.
 
How to collect food and prescription orders:
We can now allow up to 2 people inside the hospital to pick up prescriptions and food. Please call ahead at 416-537-3128.

For faster service, we suggest ordering pet supplies and food through our online store. Delivery is free with purchases over $100.00. It's easy! Just click ONLINE STORE on our website to sign up.

Payment Methods:
We are currently accepting all payment methods. However, credit or debit cards are preferred.
