Happy Bike to Work Week! Join us in celebrating alternative transportation!
At Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital, we go to great lengths to get away from car use and into shared and active transportation. Why? Aside from the obvious environmental reasons, we thoroughly believe that our staff are happier and healthier when we all big, walk and bus to work. It's Bike to Work week all year round!
So each of our staff have an alternative transportation allowance, equivalent to the cost of a monthly transit pass. As long as they walk bike or bus in good weather, they get the monthly bonus. We are proud, that in two years of business, we've only had about three staff months when people were consistently driving. Kudos to our staff!
We also belong to the local OGO carshare co-op, a non-profit that gives us inexpensive access to group-owned cars (and a truck) for our staff. Dr. Jason and Arnica were able to get rid of their second car thanks to carsharing! We run business errands and even do house calls with the OGO car parked beside Osprey Park. Read more about how your family or business could share cars with us (and lots of other people in Kelowna.)
We will all see you out cycling this week!

The last few years the tick population has been crazy - ticks have been populating shrubs from the trestles to Kelowna's urban parks. No-one likes dealing with ticks, and we all want to protect our pets against Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.
Our Pandosy Village Veterinary Hospital tick spray uses the power of rose geranium, lavender and lemongrass to repel ticks with a potent floral aroma.
