We’ll Give Your Pet Gentle and Compassionate Care
Because we cherish animals and are in tune with their needs, you can trust us to take care of your pet just as we take care of ours. Our Animal Hospital in Ottawa is fully-staffed and equipped to nurture your pet’s health.
Examinations: Your pet is important to us. When he or she is on our table, we’ll always treat them like our own. That means we perform a complete and exhaustive examination. We want to make sure we catch any and all issues that may be troubling your pet. During an exam, we’ll gently perform oral exams, comprehensive checks for illnesses, a behavioral exam, and numerous other health exams. We also offer complimentary services, including information about oral care, pet nutrition, and weight loss. Our veterinarian technicians will take the time to explain your options and recommend the best medical strategy moving forward.
Just like with children, pet vaccinations are a vital component of pet care. Your dog or cat will not enjoy the vaccination process. Our vets are animal lovers, and we have pets of our own. We’ll do our best to make your pet comfortable and we’ll always be gentle with them. They will not understand why it is happening. While we are vaccinating your pet, we’ll also make sure you understand the purpose and benefits of the vaccinations. We can give your dog its parvovirus, canine hepatitis, and rabies vaccinations and we vaccinate your cat against panleukopenia, feline calicivirus, feline herpesvirus type I, and rabies.
Your pet’s weight is one of the most important facets of their overall health. Overweight pets are more prone to develop serious health issues like diabetes, joint, bone, and ligament damage, heart disease, breathing difficulties, decreased stamina, heat intolerance, decreased liver function, and increased risk of cancer. We’ll work with you to educate you on the best way to manage your pet’s weight, including providing you with the best diet and pet supply options.
Labs and X-Rays
Sometimes a physical examination is not enough to diagnose your pet. When this happens, we’ll need to give your pet an x-ray. Our facility comes complete with in-house labs for if we need to draw blood and run tests and x-ray equipment to search for potential problems like tumors and joint or ligament damage. Our in-house laboratory and x-ray equipment are crucial to our ability to figure out what is ailing your furry friend and get them back to full health.
While your dog or cat loves you, they also love going outdoors. Sometimes, when you’re not looking, they’ll dart outside. A lost pet can be a traumatic experience for your family, particularly if you have children. Microchipping your pet is an absolutely crucial way to ensure that your pet doesn’t stay lost for long. Your pet won’t be harmed by the procedure, nor will they be aware of the chip. Your kitten will be playing with catnip and your dog with its bone blissfully unaware. Don’t let your pet go unprotected.
Euthanasia & Aftercare
The decision to euthanize your pet will be a difficult one. When your pet’s quality of living has deteriorated beyond our abilities to heal them, we’ll be a compassionate and caring resource for euthanasia. We also partner with VRCS to provide pet cremation services.
Flea and Tick Prevention
As the weather gets warmer, fleas and ticks begin to wake up from their winter hibernation. When the outdoor temperature reaches 0 – 4 degrees C these pests start to become more active. In Ottawa, this means pets should be protected between mid-March and mid-November. A proactive approach is the best way to prevent your dog from contracting Lyme disease. We offer a variety of different Flea and Tick preventative medication for your pets. Please contact us for more information on the best approach for your family pet.
