Amanda Layton

Clinic Manager
I was born in Wales, UK and came to Canada in 1993. Raised three wonderful boys and share my home with two hyperactive Border Collies, Rio & Link, a Maine Coon named Gandalf and a CRAZY Bengal named Crixus. I've always had a passion for animals and have been in this business a long time. When I'm not at work, I enjoy working out, hiking and agility training. I joined Acadia Drive Animal Clinic in April 2015. I love all aspects of Veterinary Medicine but if I had to pick one, it would probably be surgery. After all these years, I still learn something new every day! My first pet was a kitty named Timmy who was born in the coal shed at my grandmother's house. He lived to a grand old age of 21 years. What do I love about my job? Who wouldn't enjoy cuddling puppies and kittens all day? Also, I love educating our clients in keeping their pets healthy. My favourite thing about the clinic is that I have the BEST coworkers here at Acadia Drive. We have a lot of FUN doing what we LOVE! Our team ROCKS!! A fun fact about me? I have a black belt in karate. I also have a very dry sense of humour and love to make people laugh.

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 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 403-278-3168. We will bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

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. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the clinic. Our staff will bring your order to your car.

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

6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

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.
