The clinic was born when Dr. Robert Dumont decided to open a clinic where the well-being of patients and clients as well as the employees, would be the primary purpose. After graduating in 1991, he completed his internship in animal companions in 1992 and then worked at the Saint-Lazare veterinary hospital. Armed with the experience he acquired from this team, Dr. Dumont moved back to Sainte-Dorothée, the area where he grew up. The Clinique Vétérinaire Samson was founded in 2000 with Dr. Geneviève Rosseel (DMV 1990, IPSAV 1991) and Isabelle Auclair, animal health technician who graduated in 1994.
To bring success to the clinic, they set up a team of professionals who believe in its values. Dr. Anne-Marie Gauthier (DMV 1989, IPSAV 1990) joined in 2001, Julie Bernatchez (AHT 1998) and Helen Rivet (AHT 1994) joined them in 2004, Dr. Bernard Pépin (DMV 1978) in 2007, Annie Beaulac (AHT 1994) in 2009, Stephanie Letendre (AHT 2011) in 2010 and Carmela Iacampo (AHT 2001) in 2014.
Over the years, we have trained many students and animal health technicians, and hosted many students of all levels.
The clinic has also developed to improve service and comfort: we moved from 2 to 3 consultation rooms, the waiting room has been separated from the shop to provide more space for our patients, and in 2014, we added a separate waiting room to isolate more fearful animals. Since 2000, we have moved from one reception station to two and then three, the laboratory has been expanded as well as a new office space for veterinarians.
To be on the cutting edge of technology, we have moved from conventional radiography in 2000 to digital radiography in 2012, starting from the development of manual X-rays to automatic and finally digital. A high-performance dental unit as well as a digital dental radiography apparatus in 2012. From the beginning, orthopedic surgery is offered by Dr. Dumont. We have endoscopes since 2006 as well as automatic intravenous fluid pumps. Since 2008, we offer laser surgery. We regularly improve the anesthesia monitoring equipment, that is the Capnometer, Doppler, sphygmometer, digital thermometer..,
We perform blood pressure measurements with petmap.
In 2014, several biochemistry and hematology lab apparatus have been added to provide a more comprehensive on-site service.
The answer seems obvious, because we are located on the Samson boulevard in Sainte-Dorothée. But ALSO because Dr. Edouard Samson was a famous human orthopedic specialist in 20th century Quebec. Since our Dr. Dumont, veterinarian, also practices orthopedics, the name of the clinic was quickly chosen.
