Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
It is not uncommon to want to spoil our pups when we’re eating our meals at the dinner table, or when we are having a snack on the couch. We will never be able to escape the two beady eyes staring at you waiting for something to drop so they can snatch it up, but not all human food is good for our four-legged friends.
Although the food we eat is safe for us, it may not be safe for them, and it is very important that we know that. Dogs do digest food differently than humans, and some fruits or vegetables can even be downright dangerous for our dogs. Please take a look at this list to know what they can have a taste of and what should be avoided.

The safe list is far longer than the not safe list of fruits and veggies that your dog can eat, but this is only in moderation, almost like a little snack for them here and there. Introducing new food to our dog’s diets can develop an allergic reaction, so look out for any symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, or even skin problems. You can always talk to your veterinarian if you are concerned or have any questions at all!
We are so happy to announce that we have won the 2018 Reader’s Choice Award in Mississauga in the category of Best Veterinary Hospitals! This award is very special to us as the voting is done by the community and our clients.
We would like to thank every person who took the time to vote, or even took the time to share your experience with someone else.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS
We continue to be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
