We are a hospital. A place where patients come to get well, stay well, live a full life and end life
with comfort and dignity. Our growing team of Veterinarians are working continuously on
initiatives that enhance the lives of pets so that the people who love them can enjoy a longer life

the OVMA Award of Merit for his outstanding contributions to the profession! We have a 4.8-star
rating on Google (not 5-star, because none of us are perfect)! We celebrated our successes this
year with incredible parties, a trip to a haunted hotel, axe throwing, teddy bear surgery in the
park, spin classes, TFC and Jays games, paint your pet night and incentive bonuses.
We believe in our team. We demonstrate this by giving them the opportunity to learn and grow.
We support them and embrace their ideas to make us work smarter and have more fun while
doing it. Our team of 8 RVT’s is supported by 18 medical support team members of assistants,
patient representatives and client service stars. Our RVT’s are learning how to perform
ultrasound guided cystos, place nasogastric tubes and how to tape in the perfect urinary
catheter. On top of a significant continuing education allowance, we also bring C.E. INTO the
hospital so that everyone benefits from a lecture! Last year we had an anesthesiologist, internal
medicine specialist, oncologist and social worker give us private sessions to better our skills and
ourselves. Our next session is a CPR refresher course with a board certified anesthesia
