Dr. Tina Chiu

Veterinarian

I was born in Taiwan and moved to Toronto at a young age, where I have lived most of my life. My husband and I decided to settle down in Saskatoon after my schooling. I have two crazy lovable pups, Blizzard and S'more that I'm absolutely obsessed with. I attended St George's University in Grenada for the first 3 years and completed my final 4th-year clinical training at WCVM in January 2018.

Practicing veterinary medicine can be stressful at times but it can also be very rewarding. It's humbling to see the unconditional love and trust these animals put in their human. There's nothing sweeter than watching their bond when they interact with each other. Being a veterinarian enables me to ensure that the pets stay healthy and happy so they can further strengthen that bond. The area of veterinary medicine that interests me the most is dermatology and abscesses.

Being a veterinarian definitely keeps you on your toes, you never know what is going to walk through those doors. You're constantly learning with every case and expanding your knowledge. It's such a diverse career and there are so many different paths/opportunities to take. But working with a great support staff and having their guidance definitely makes the days go a lot smoother and eases the stress.

A fun fact about myself is that when I was a toddler in Taiwan, my left hand was bitten by a family friend's pet monkey. The stitches and mangled appearance will forever be a part of my left hand.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 30, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy and "drop off" policy to protect our clients and staff. We ask that you follow these steps:

a. When you arrive, please remain stay in the hallway and use your cell phone to call us at 306.373.3500. Please ensure your pet is either in a carrier or has a collar that can be attached to a leash.

b. Once an exam room is ready, we will come to take your pet from you and into an exam room and call you to take a history and talk about any concerns.

c. Once the exam is over we call you with our recommended treatment plan, we can then arrange to take payment over the phone./p>

d. We will then bring your pet out to you in the hallway.

2. We are giving priority to urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services please give us a call and we can decide if the appointment can be done at a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday through Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Saturday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, & closed on Sundays

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives and you will be asked to pay over the phone. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, and we will place your order outside on the table or bring to you in the hallway.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
