Veterinary Referrals for Pets

Our top priority is ensuring your pet receives the best care, whether that’s with us or in the hands of another veterinary professional we trust. Our hospital is familiar with all kinds of animal specialists in the city and encourages our clients to visit them. When we contact them, we will share your questions and concerns so they’re prepared for your upcoming appointment. They will also be informed of your pet’s medical history so they’ll know how to accommodate them properly. To learn more about our referral practices and our roster of veterinary specialists, call us at 905.597.7373.

Do we have to take a referral even if we prefer your services?

Yes. If for any reason we cannot give care directly to our furry patient, we provide references to veterinary locations that specialize in your pet’s needs. From hydrotherapy sessions to emergency vet hospitals, we have all the resources you need. For the benefit of your pet’s health, we would rather direct you to a doctor who is an expert in your pet’s medical condition. If there are any other options, we will discuss them with you prior to making the referral.

For what services do you provide referrals?

We offer referrals for a variety of medical conditions and therapeutic services, including internal medicine consultations. Our in-hospital referrals involve an internal medicine specialist who performs ultrasounds, endoscopic procedures and helps us with the diagnosis of more complicated cases. However, in some cases our referrals will direct you to another location.

The time has come to begin our reopening process! We cannot believe it has been over a year since we’ve had you all in the clinic but we are excited and eager to welcome you back. Please read carefully below for our updated policies and protocols.


  • Effective October 20, 2021, we will be allowing vaccinated clients in the clinic for doctors’ appointments only. Technician appointments and medication/food pick up will continue to be curbside to control the amount of people in the clinic at any given time.
  • We will be allowing one client to accompany their pet in the appointment. Because we will only be allowing one client in at a time, we will not be able to permit children to accompany their parents. There is a strict one-client rule due to the size of our examination rooms.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please give the clinic a call at 905-597-7373. A Client Care Representative will either let you know the technician is ready to meet you at the door or will retrieve a phone number if we are not quite ready yet.
  • A technician will meet you at the front door. Please have your vaccine passport/identification ready at this time. The technician will also ask you a few COVID-19 Screening questions before guiding you into the clinic.
  • Face masks are still required to enter the hospital and must be worn properly at all times within the clinic and when interacting with our team members outside.
  • Please sanitize your hands upon entry.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.

    We appreciate advance notice for food and prescription refills. Please call 905.597.7373 upon arrival at the FRONT DOOR and a receptionist will be out with your order right away. 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.
