Kira Chyz

Veterinary Technician

Like most of us in the veterinary industry, I absolutely loved animals growing up. My career started at 15 working and volunteering in Humane Societies. After graduating from the Veterinary Technician Program at Seneca College in 2010, I am excited to now be calling North Town my home. My goal is to help owners provide the absolute best care for their pets outside of the clinic - I love helping them with nutrition, dental care and training/behaviour.

Outside of the clinic I can be found outdoors with my 3 dogs (Catahoula Brothers and a St. Bernard) and my summer weekends are spent on the water or getting muddy in an obstacle course race!

North Town Veterinary Hospital is committed to doing everything possible to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

As part of this commitment, effective immediately, North Town Veterinary Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocol to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community we are limiting the amount of clients permitted inside of our building. We have initiated a semi- open door policy to allow one person inside the hospital while your pet is here for a scheduled exam. One person is also permitted inside the hospital for surgical drop offs. Our emergency services remain closed door to clients as our building does not allow for proper social distancing while waiting for the veterinarian. Please call 905-451-2000 when you arrive for your appointment, surgical drop off or emergency service to gain further direction from one of our team members. You can also place an order for pet food through our Online Store by visiting our website.

IMPORTANT NOTICE - OVERNIGHT CLOSURES
Due to the current veterinarian shortage in our industry, our emergency service will be closed overnight starting at 7:00 pm on the following dates: September 3, 2021 | September 4, 2021 | September 17, 2021 | September 18, 2021 | September 19, 2021 | September 26, 2021

For any after-hour emergencies, please refer to this list of clinics/hospitals.
