Chelsea Swinimer

Registered Veterinary Technician

Chelsea graduated from the Veterinary Technician program at Dalhousie Agricultural Campus in 2016. She became a Registered Veterinary Technician later that year. Her favourite thing about being a Technician is seeing her sick patients return to the clinic fit and well and knowing that she has made a difference.

Chelsea has always had a love for animals and has had many pets of her own over the years, including hamsters, rats, cats and dogs. She currently has a cat called Moi, who is 10 years old. Her parents have the family dog, Teddy, who is a 9 year old Shih Tzu. Chelsea visits with Teddy regularly and he is still a great source of entertainment for her!

Chelsea is a fun loving person who is always keen to make her co-workers smile and to make the working day pass with some laughter. She is always available to help out and is a very flexible member of the team.

Dear Clients,

We want to thank everyone for their patience in recent months. We have adhered, as strictly as we could, to the Public Health Directives throughout COVID and with this in mind, we are pleased to say that masks are no longer mandatory at our hospital. You may still see staff wearing masks when in close contact with clients. This is a purely personal choice. 

Our doors are now open and you are welcome to accompany your pets into the clinic for their appointments.

We require at least 48-72 hours for all medication refills as we are still experiencing delays with some items, but we will inform you of any backordered items.

We can still receive your food orders via phone or email, however, we now have an online store that you can access directly from the front page of our website. Please check out the free shipping and autoship discounts available.

Due to being short staffed at this time, we ask for your patience and kindness as we try to navigate through these busy times. We are doing the very best we can. If the phone is busy, please email or attempt to call again.


Monday to Friday: 8:00 am – 7:00 pm
Saturday: 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Sunday: Closed

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!

 - Your dedicated team at Sackville Animal Hospital
