Exceptional Pet Care in Whitby Since 2004
Our 1700 sq. ft. hospital opened its doors on November 19th, 2004. Today, we provide a wide range of medical and surgical pet care services for both dogs and cats. These services include routine preventative health programs with annual examinations and vaccine reviews, dietary counseling with extensive selection of prescription diets specifically tailored to your pets needs available on site, medical diagnostics done either with our on-site lab or use of an off-site laboratory, microchip implantation and identification, routine surgical procedures for example spay and neuters as well as emergency surgery.
Our clinic also provides radiography as a diagnostic tool for both gastrointestinal and orthopedic ailments. Our clinic is outfitted with cages in varying sizes for both recuperating cats and dogs as well as runs for larger breed and an isolation area for our sickest friends. Our clinic is designed with easily sanitized materials and is routinely disinfected to help prevent the spread of infectious disease.
Our hospital, like all veterinary clinics in Ontario, is routinely inspected by The College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO). This ensures that our clinic meets specific regulated requirements set out by the CVO.
Licensing of your pet for the Town of Whitby can also be done at our facility.
