Wellness Examinations …

Your pets health is our priority. Through regular wellness examinations, ideally done at least once yearly, we are able to help maintain your pet as healthy as possible. Our knowledgeable doctors and staff will make recommendations about feeding, dietary needs, dental care, nutritional supplements, internal and external parasite control. We will also be happy to address any concerns you may have.

House Calls…

We offer house call services to clients and patients who prefer to have the veterinarian visit them in the comfort of their home.

End of life Care…

For owners of senior or terminally ill pets who wish for their pet to pass away at home with dignity, we offer pet hospice care, also known as palliative care.  Our goal is to make a pet’s final days or weeks more pleasant with the proper use of pain medications, dietary strategies and human interaction. Pet hospice is not a physical place, but a personal choice and philosophy based on the principle that death is a part of life and can be dignified.

Peaceful, humane euthanasia..

Euthanasia, the final act of love, can be tailored to each patient and is available at our hospital or in the privacy of your home. Our staff is trained to help guide you through this sad and difficult time.

Spinal Manipulation Therapy (Veterinary Chiropractic care for dogs and cats) 

Dr. Laura Whiting is offering Spinal care at Nottawasaga Valley Veterinary Hospital by appointment. She is a veterinarian certified in Animal Spinal Manipulation Therapy and Massage Therapy.

Animal Spinal Manipulation or chiropractic as it is known in human medicine, deals with restoring and maintaining the relationship between the spine and nervous system so the pet can regain and maintain its health.

Athletic dogs, pets with hip dysplasia, joint injuries, inter-vertebral disc disease, urinary incontinence and senior pets with arthritis are among some of the patients that may benefit from spinal manipulative therapy.

For most orthopedic conditions, we work closely with Dr. Justin Levy and his team at Thornbury Veterinary Hospital.
Dental and Oral Surgery …
Our hospital is well equipped to assess and address dental disease.  Digital dental radiographs play a critical role in detecting and diagnosing dental disease.  Oral health care procedures done at our hospital under general anesthesia include, a thorough oral examination, dental radiographs, dental cleaning above and below the gum line with an ultrasonic scaler and finally polishing. Diseased teeth such as those with cavities or abscesses, fractured teeth or dead teeth are extracted surgically. The gum is then sutured closed over the extraction site to allow for optimal healing.
