Dr. Kelti Kachur is an associate veterinarian at Delton Veterinary Hospital who sees dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals. She has lived in Edmonton for most of her life, but went away to school in Saskatoon at the western college of veterinary medicine to complete her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and has worked in the USA and in Vancouver in emergency medicine. Dr. Kachur had a chance to travel and even work and volunteer in some amazing places including volunteer veterinary work in South Africa, Uganda, and Togo. She has always known she would be a veterinarian; in all her childhood photos she is off trying to pet wild animals or playing with kittens. She is passionate about animal welfare, maintaining pain-free pets, and preventative care: helping keep our pets healthy for as long as we can by preventing and foreseeing any problems. She has an interest in more natural methods including acupuncture and Chinese herbal medications, in conjunction with traditional medicine. In addition to dogs and cats, Dr. Kachur sees birds and small mammals like rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, and rodents. Dr. Kachur lives with her fiance Jacques and her beautiful 18 year-old Ragdoll cat, Danger Powers. They love to fly fish, camp, travel the world when possible, play sports, take pictures, and enjoy wildlife. In her spare time, she volunteers with the PALS program, and the Wildlife Rehabilitation Society of Edmonton. She is also the President of the Edmonton Association of Small Animal Veterinarians, and has been on the Board for over three years.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, 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.
