Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
During the month of September, we are spotlighting all things cat related. Cats are very good at hiding pain and illness which can make it hard to detect when something is wrong. That is why we recommend all cats, regardless of lifestyle, visit the vet at least once per year.
Welcome to Annex Animal Hospital in Toronto, Ontario
It can be confusing when there are so many veterinary hospitals in your area. We encourage you to ask questions about our staff and veterinary services. Ask about our suggestions for reducing anxiety when bringing your cat to see the doctor. While walking your dog, stop in for a brief introduction and a treat to give your dog a positive experience in the hospital. New clients and new pets are always welcome here.
Convenient Animal Hospital Hours in Downtown Toronto
We believe it is a privilege to be allowed to care for your pets. It is important to have an understanding of the level of care provided for your pets in the office and behind the scenes. Our standard of care for our patients encompasses safety, comfort, and compassion while practicing progressive, high-quality medicine with the assistance of modern medical equipment and diagnostic testing. Our veterinary care team has been carefully selected for their level of knowledge, experience, and proven ability to provide compassionate care. We employ Licensed Doctors of Veterinary Medicine and Registered Veterinary Technicians. Regular training and continuing education is a requirement for all of our team members.
We understand everyone has busy lives. For your convenience, we are open until 8 p.m. on weekdays and every Saturday until 3 p.m. Since we have a team of four veterinarians, we can provide appointments promptly when you need us. In Downtown Toronto, parking comes at a premium. We offer our clients complimentary parking to the rear of the hospital.
At Annex Animal Hospital, we firmly believe that pets are part of the family. Under our care, we will treat your pets with love, respect, and compassion as though they were one of our own pets. It is an honour and a privilege to be your “other family doctor.”
From August 31st to October 3rd, we are running a special promotion for the well-being of our feline patients. We understand that bringing your cat to see the vet can be a bit stressful for some pets and their people too. If you find this process challenging, give us a call at 416.537.3128 to speak with one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians for helpful tips on fear-free vet visits for cats.
Tick Prevention Recommended
Tick prevention remains a priority for our pets this spring: As the temperatures rise above 4 degrees, ticks become active and quest for food. Toronto Parks, woodland trails, grassy regions, and leaf piles all have the potential to contain ticks just waiting to hitch a ride on pets and humans. As we are already seeing pets with ticks this spring, our veterinarians feel that it is important to maintain vigilance by using tick protection on our pets.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
