Dave’s Quick Print –Award Winning Industry Leader and Generous KPDC Sponsor!

One of the reasons Dave’s Quick Print is excited to be involved with Kilcona Dog Park Club is because it “feels” right. “Many of our staff are devoted animal lovers,” accordingly to co-owner Randy Premachuk. “Sponsoring Kilcona Dog Park Club was a natural way to align ourselves with a cause that resonates within our company culture.”

Dave’s Quick Print has been a generous sponsor. Over and above the annual Corporate Sponsorship Program fees it pays to help fund improvements to Kilcona Dog Park, and discounts it provides to club members, DQP has donated hundreds of dollars of Jets and Moose tickets as prizes for KPDC fundraisers.

Since 1982, Dave’s Quick Print, located at 1650 Field Street, has been a “go to” print supplier for corporate, individual and non-profit organizations. Their commitment to providing outstanding service coupled with high quality products has enabled them to remain a print leader within Manitoba. Premachuk and co-owner Randy Nelson, focus on areas that can create a competitive advantage for DQP.

“We always choose the best equipment and technology we can afford so our customers have the best possible products,” said Premachuk, who along with Nelson has owned Dave’s Quick Print since 2011. “We cater to the corporate community with our wide array of digital and offset equipment. We are regularly relied upon to produce a variety of products that require quality, accuracy and fast turnaround. Often our projects are of a sensitive nature and demand the utmost in confidentiality and security.”

Nelson and Premachuk are confident their consistency in meeting these challenges is why they continue to be a trusted and valued supplier to many businesses and organizations. Recently, print clients have been requesting a more specific and targeted approach when it comes to their print marketing campaigns. DQP has been at the forefront of providing these services.

“Our new digital copiers can print “variable data” information which means customers can personalize their marketing materials. We also offer an email blast service which is an excellent complement to a print marketing campaign. It allows users to track analytics (such as times opened) in real time. Offering multi-pronged marketing approaches is just one example of the value-added services we provide to our customers,” stated Premachuk, a 25 year veteran of the print industry.

Even though they have all of the professional equipment they require, the DQP owners know it’s their staff that drives their business.

“We are super fortunate to have tremendous team members working with us on a daily basis. A number of our staff have been with the business since the early 1990’s. This type of loyalty and dedication is very rare in today’s society. Along the way we have added new key people, which has made us a very well rounded team.

Ultimately, we know and appreciate that our valued customers are our real boss,” revealed Premachuk.

McPhillips Animal Hospital

Posted by / in Features, News /

– by Robyn Maharaj

 

Like Winnipeg’s fabled North End, Dr. Rhonda Stockburger has a long history with this historic and colourful community through her veterinary office, McPhillips Animal Hospital. A graduate of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986, she started there shortly upon graduation. Over the years, she evolved from associate veterinarian, to partner, and then to sole owner of the practice which first opened its doors in 1972.

“All of us here like to think of our patients and clients as family. We strive to treat our patients as if they were our own pets. We want to aid our clients in fostering a strong bond with their pets, and helping them live a long and happy life,” says Dr. Stockburger, who was born and raised in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Treating primarily canines and felines, rabbits and “pocket pets” also fill out their furry patient clientele. Because dogs and cats are their primary base of patient care, having top of the line veterinary medical equipment means being able to diagnose and treat injury and disease that simply was not even possible a decade ago.

 

“We have recently added dental radiography and laser therapy to our other services. Veterinary medicine has come a long way, and continues to change frequently. We strive to strengthen our techniques, and methods of caring for our patients, to ensure we can provide the best care to your loved ones. Our goal is to recommend the best treatments and testing for our patients, while working within our clients’ lifestyle and budget,” says Dr. Stockburger. McPhillips Animal Hospital has five licensed veterinarians on staff as well as five Animal Health Technologists and several office and animal assistants.

Services provided by McPhillips Animal Hospital include: Wellness & Vaccination Programs, Medical Services, Surgical Services, Nutrition Counseling and Dental Care. Specific services available also include: Dental and General Digital Radiology, Chemotherapy, Glaucoma Testing, Therapeutic Laser ECG’s, as well as various animal surgeries. They also have an in-house laboratory that allows veterinary staff access to quick test results which can then be communicated to the pet owner.

“Whenever possible, we encourage preventative medicine: routine wellness examinations, vaccinations, heartworm, tick and other prevention, spaying and neutering, and wellness blood testing, to prevent emergency care whenever possible. Preventative care tends to be less expensive and less traumatic for the pet than emergency care.”

As most dog owners who take their dogs in for regular vet visits know, dental care is playing an ever increasing role in aiding veterinarians with their work.

Dental Health

“Dental health is so important to your pet’s well being. Dental disease is so much more than bad breath. Bacteria in the mouth can lead to negative effects on kidneys, liver, lungs and heart. We recommend daily brushing, routine oral exams, and in hospital dental cleanings. We also carry dental health products such as toothpastes, dental diets, oral rinses, and dental treats,” says Dr. Stockburger.

 

McPhillips Animal Hospital also provides real world practicum experience to various students and volunteer and intern positions for those interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine.

In addition to sponsoring Kilcona Park Dog Club, McPhillips Animal Hospital supports their animal community such as Guide Dogs of Canada and other helper dog organizations. They do their best to help stray animals in need working with various rescue organizations and have established their own adoption program by finding permanent loving homes for those animals they’ve rescued.

“We support Kilcona Park Dog Club because off-leash dog parks are a great place for dogs to get the exercise and socialization they need. We do recommend that your dog be kept up to date on vaccinations and preventative medications, and that you monitor them at all times at the dog park to make sure they are compatible with the other dogs there.”

 

Located in a busy strip mall – 2211B McPhillips Street, it is just south of Garden City Shopping Centre.
