Dr. Dewit-Kawiuk graduated from the University of Guelph first with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Zoology, then with her D.V.M. degree in 1982. After several years of working with companion animals and horses in Southern Ontario, Dr. Dewit-Kawiuk found a permanent home here at the Clarkson Village Animal Hospital in 1992.
Her many years of experience and warm personality have a comforting effect on our clients and their pets. No one could ask for a kinder, more knowledgeable person to work with! She specializes in internal medicine, dermatology, and geriatric dogs and cats.
In her spare time, Dr. Dewit-Kawiuk enjoys biking, paddling, running with her dog, and indoor rock climbing. She also volunteers at her church.
“You know your pets better than anyone and I take your concerns about their health seriously. I see each pet as a new family member since I consider my own dog as a member of my family. By spending quality time with you and your pet, it allows me to discuss preventive health care as well as explain what sometimes complex medical issues in plain English are.”
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
