Medical Services

Animals suffer from all the diseases that we do (such as diabetes, cancer and kidney failure). Often, detailed medical work ups, including lab tests and x-rays are needed to determine the medical problem your pet is suffering from.Our inhouse lab facilitates early diagnosis. The back up veterinary lab in Toronto has overnight turn around for other tests we may require and does pathology testing such as tumor analysis. As well, we employ the services of an internal medicine specialist/ultrasonologist from Ottawa when necessary. The specialist will come to our clinic to consult on cases that need ultrasound exams of the heart or abdomen so your pet does not have to be moved to another clinic. We do our best to be thorough and practice good medicine in each and every case, regularly consulting with other doctors in the clinic. Please feel free to ask us for a detailed breakdown of the charges in advance, as we will gladly prepare you an estimate. Also, we encourage questions as some clients undoubtedly find medical words and detailed lab results foreign and confusing. Always feel free to ask us to explain any test results or medical findings to your complete satisfaction if we have not done so.
