A new mobile veterinary service will soon launch in the region.

Veterinarian Donna Markland will open Island Mobile Paws Veterinary Services on April 1, and will offer home visits to clients and their pets from Mill Bay to Nanaimo, including Saltspring Island.

She said the business provides a “unique service” and will be focused on medical acupuncture, therapeutic laser and ultrasound, and physical therapy for companion animals.

“I will see a variety of patients, including dogs and cats with orthopaedic issues, canine athletes and service dogs, and pets with chronic medical conditions already treated with conventional medicine,” Markland said.

Designer leggings prove great success

When Tammie Hunter started a designer leggings company called LegArt Apparel in Duncan last year, she had no idea that success would come so early.

LegArt Apparel, which recently celebrated its first anniversary, has already seen exponential growth and has added other clothing lines and accessories on top of her large inventory of leggings.

“We knew we had a good product and a unique presentation, but the response has been much more than we ever expected, Hunter said. “Customers just love our funky leggings, and we love selling them.”
