Resources

Annex Animal Hospital is happy to provide our clients with access to current information so they may play an active role in the wellness of their pet. From our hospital forms to helpful pet-related links, our resources page will help you find the information that you’re looking for.

Educational Links

The Veterinary Information Network (VIN) is a website that has an online library with a wide range of articles about veterinary health care. VIN makes it easy to find articles from leading veterinary experts about general pet health and wellness, behaviour issues, nutrition, prescription medications, and much more.

To find an article, simply enter a word or topic in the search box that describes the subject that you would like to learn about. For example, you can enter a search term such as “diabetes” or “dog aggression” for more information about that topic. To browse the full database of pet articles, select a topic and/or species to find the relevant articles.

*NEW CLIENTS AND NEW PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!*

As we approach the holiday season, please note our holiday hours:

December 24: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
December 25/26/27: Closed
December 31: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
January 1 and 2: Closed

Please order your pet's prescriptions and pet foods early during the holiday season to avoid delays. We require one week's notice for prescription refills. Our front door is currently open for picking up pre-ordered food and medications only. If you prefer not to come inside, please call upon arrival and we will be happy to bring your order outside.

Our veterinarians are currently seeing all patients by appointment ONLY. We are currently operating with both curbside and in office appointments. We have limited capacity to accommodate indoor appointments but please let us know your preference at the time of booking and we will do our very best to accommodate your request. Please note, for safety reasons, you will be asked to wait behind a clear screen while speaking with the veterinarian. Your pet will be examined by the veterinarian while one of our assistants holds them. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these appointments take a little longer than normal.  

How do curbside / closed-door appointments work?
Please come to the back door for your appointment and call 416-537-3128 upon arrival. A veterinarian will speak with you over the phone and a veterinary assistant will come out to collect your pet for an examination. After examining your pet, the doctor will follow-up on the phone with their findings and recommendations. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pets. Please let us know in advance if they have any special needs.
 
How to collect food and prescription orders:
We can now allow up to 2 people inside the hospital to pick up prescriptions and food. Please call ahead at 416-537-3128.

For faster service, we suggest ordering pet supplies and food through our online store. Delivery is free with purchases over $100.00. It's easy! Just click ONLINE STORE on our website to sign up.

Payment Methods:
We are currently accepting all payment methods. However, credit or debit cards are preferred.
 

HOURS OF OPERATION:

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
