Your Pet Gazette


It may seem early but, ticks are active and questing for a host at temperatures above four degrees. They are currently emerging from leafy piles and brush areas as the snow melts. Ticks will hitch onto anything that passes by including people, dogs, cats and wildlife. The incidence rate of ticks and tick-borne disease is on the rise in southern Ontario. According to Toronto Public Health reports, ticks are now endemic throughout all the southern Ontario regions including the east, west and central zones.

Remember, it is less traumatic for your pet, and less expensive to prevent tick-borne diseases than to treat them after the fact. We have both oral and topical forms of flea and tick prevention and treatment for your pets. One simple dose of prevention given every three months is super convenient and effective. Alternatively, if you prefer, we also have products that can be applied monthly. Please be on the look-out for tick hitchhikers this spring and call us if you find any on your dog. Check family members for ticks after walking in wooded or grassy areas carefully. Tick nymphs can be as tiny as a pinhead and difficult to spot. This makes prevention all the more important.

Our veterinarians are currently seeing all patients by appointment ONLY.  We continue to operate with a "closed waiting room" in order to keep our clients and staff safe during the pandemic. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these appointments take a little longer than normal.  

How do 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.
Payment Methods:
We are currently accepting all payment methods. However, credit or debit cards are preferred.
How to collect food and prescription orders:
We appreciate advance notice for food and prescription refills. Please call 416-537-3128 upon arrival at the FRONT DOOR and a receptionist will be out with your order as soon as possible. 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.


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