Our building was built in 1987-88. What a chore! Who knew so many guidelines had to be met? But in the end, it was all worth it! We have an extensive exhaust system throughout our clinic that results in complete air exchanges occurring every 10 minutes throughout our entire clinic with the exception of the surgical suite where the air exchange occurs every 8 minutes! (If you think your hydro bill is bad – you should see ours!) This allows us to benefit from a cleaner healthier environment for people and pets. We also have an extensive pipeline of oxygen, carefully hidden from view behind the ceiling tiles, to deliver oxygen to the surgical suite, incubation area and dentistry area. Another air system draws excess anesthetic gases away from our employees in these areas. The blueprints of these air systems resembled a ball of string at the mercy of a litter of playful kittens.
