Dr. Cusmariu dreamed of becoming a veterinarian for as long as she can remember. As a teenager, she attended zoo camp where she got to play with a variety of exotic animals including a lioness cub, wolf pups, lemurs, and more! She graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science in 2014 and then obtained her D.V.M. degree from Ross University. She’s interested in pathology, internal medicine, emergency medicine, and surgery.
Dr. Cusmariu loves cats and used to own three, all of whom have now passed away. When she’s ready to take in another feline friend she plans to rescue one from a local shelter. In the meantime, she’s thrilled to bring her compassion and caring attitude to work at Clarkson Village Animal Hospital every day. She loves helping patients and their families and supporting that special pet-people bond.
In her spare time, Dr. Cusmariu loves reading sci-fi and fantasy novels, and crocheting – one day she hopes to finish the blanket she’s been working on for longer than she cares to admit! Her dream is to own and operate her own practice.
We are so happy to announce that we have won the 2018 Reader’s Choice Award in Mississauga in the category of Best Veterinary Hospitals! This award is very special to us as the voting is done by the community and our clients.
We would like to thank every person who took the time to vote, or even took the time to share your experience with someone else.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS
We continue to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
