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.
Thank you for your support over the last 18 years and trusting us with the healthcare of your family member.
We plan to continue to provide your pets healthcare needs into the next decade and beyond. Drop by and see us in our modern facility built in 2013. We would be happy to give you a tour.

Our Dedicated Staff
Dr. Brent Robinson
Dr. Robinson opened Robinson Veterinary Services in May 2003 after working at a mixed animal practice in Clinton, Ontario for 6 years. He graduated from The University Of Guelph in 1997. Dr. Robinson is a member of the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association and has completed additional courses on small animal ultrasound and on surgical repair of Anterior Cruciate Ligaments and has successfully repaired many as a result. Dr. Robinson has a wonderful wife Maria, 5 daughters and one son and enjoys spending time with them when he can.
Rebecca grew up on a dairy farm outside of Watford, ON and from a young age had a keen interest in animal medicine. She graduated from the Veterinary Technology program at Ridgetown College in 2008.
She now lives on a hobby farm with her husband, Matt and their 3 children. In between raising her family and caring for her dogs, cows, ducks, chickens, turkeys and potbellied pig she works here at Robinson’s as a veterinary technician. She especially enjoys the dental side of companion animal medicine and uses that interest to help with everyday dental procedures in the clinic.
Abbie joined the team at Robinson Veterinary Services in the spring of 2020 after completing her external placement for the Veterinary Technician program. Abbie went on to graduate from the University of Guelph Ridgetown campus in May 2020 and we loved her so much, we wanted her to stay. Abbie has a keen interest in anesthesia and dental prophys When not in the clinic, Abbie enjoys working on her family’s dairy farm milking cows and caring for all the other animals on the farm. Abbie is also very active in the 4-H clubs and enjoys curling in the winter and baseball in the summer.
After Hours Emergency and Advice/Triage Policy
At Robinson Veterinary Services we understand that your pet doesn’t necessarily get ill during regular business hours. We strive 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, in December 2018 we implemented an emergency advice/triage line where you can discuss with a trained team member the situation and they can advise on the best course of action. In our experience not every situation is an emergency and can wait until the next business day. This service can save you an unnecessary trip to the emergency hospital.
If you are a current client who has been in with a pet in the last 2 years, please call 519-381-7864 and you will be in contact with either a staff member on call where you will leave a message with your name, Pets name and species, brief description of the issue and a return number and we will get back to you in a short period of time. Or you will be forwarded automatically to the London Veterinary Emergency Clinic for Triage. The advice given is based on the accuracy of the provided information that is given by you to the staff member. Callers after 9:00pm will be required to call the London Regional Veterinary and Referral Clinic at 1-519-432-7341 for their 24 hour staff to triage your concern. 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
Calling first is always advised
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.
