Robinson Veterinary Services is nestled in the heart of Lambton County and is a short distance from centers such as Sarnia, Petrolia, Wyoming and Camlachie. The practice was founded by Dr. Brent Robinson in May 2003. The practice began as a single veterinarian mixed animal practice and has since evolved to a busy small animal practice. With an excellent support staff and great clients, this allows us to put emphasis on client education and preventive medicine so you can also provide your pet with the best of healthcare.

After Hours Emergency
At Robinson Veterinary Services we understand that your pet doesn’t necessarily get ill during regular business hours. We have strived in the past to do our best to provide emergency service for our patients but have realized in an out of hours situation where support staff are absent, we cannot provide the care that is within our standards. In saying that, the London Veterinary Emergency and Referral Clinic has enlisted a SmartVet service which will triage your case via telemedicine video conference and can either script medications out for the condition or can refer you to the London Emergency Clinic if it is something that needs to be seen by a veterinarian. So call the London Veterinary Emergency Clinic at 1-519-432-7341 and pick option 6. If you have been advised to be seen by a veterinarian by the SmartVet service you will need to proceed to :
London Regional Veterinary Emergency and Referral Clinic
45-41 Adelaide St. N. London, ON 519-432-7341
At the moment, Dr. Robinson is the single doctor in the practice. The most difficult part of being the only doctor is providing 24 hour a day 7 days a week emergency care. This situation makes it very difficult to have a family and personal life and eventually results in fatigue. Dr. Robinson has strived to provide this service for over 16 years but has decided the care in an out of hour’s situation with an ill pet cannot be provided to the level we strive for due to the lack of staffing. Dr. Robinson is grateful in your understanding in this matter.
