We remain open to provide care for your pets. We are following the direction of government and regulatory authorities and have implemented hospital and visit protocols to keep both you and our team safe. For regular updates on our hours and visit protocols, please follow our social media platforms.
Monday through Friday: 8:00AM – 8:00PM Saturday: 8:00AM – 3:00PM Closed Sundays and holidays.
We recommend arriving at the clinic 5 minutes before your appointment time in order to update your information. If you arrive late for your appointment we cannot guarantee that your pet will be seen; we will, however, offer you the next available appointment. If you need to cancel your appointment, please call us as soon as possible to cancel or reschedule. Clients who repeatedly miss appointments will be asked to leave a deposit for all future appointments.
All pets admitted to the hospital for surgery, dentistry, boarding, or grooming must be up to date with their annual check-ups and/or vaccinations. If this service was provided by another hospital, proof of vaccination will be requested at the time of booking. If you do not have the vaccination certificate, we will be happy to call the clinic where the service was provided on your behalf. This policy is important for the safety and well being of both your own pet and others in the hospital.
Should your pet require after hours care, please call the Veterinary Emergency Clinic at 416-920-2002. Please do not attempt to contact us via email for emergency care. This could lead to unnecessary delays. We do not respond to emails after business hours. If you require immediate assistance during office hours, please call us at 416.537.3128.
We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard and debit cards as forms of payment for services and pet supplies. Payment for services rendered is due after each appointment or when the pet is discharged from the hospital. We request a 50% deposit whenever a pet is admitted to the hospital for treatment. A written treatment plan including the anticipated charges will be provided. Please note that while we do our best to provide accurate treatment plans, it is not always possible to predict everything a patient may require while in hospital.
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.
