The Pictou Veterinary Clinic began in 2000 in a very casual way. Dr. Bruce Robb bought the "old RCMP building," renovated it, equipped it and then came here to do paperwork away from the hustle and bustle of the New Glasgow Veterinary Clinic. He soon was "discovered" and found himself doing appointments along with the paperwork. A full-time receptionist (Wendy) was hired to answer the phone, batch book appointments and sell some food. Finally, in the fall of 2007, he decided there was too much demand in Pictou for this casual approach and he placed Dr. Brenda Spence-MacLeod at the PVC in a permanent, part-time position. Over the years the practice has grown from 2 very quiet days a week for 2 staff members, to 4 very busy days for 4 1/2 staff members.
We still depend on our parent, the New Glasgow Vet Clinic for support in some services, but we hope and plan to continue our pattern of growth and service to this community.
