We're pleased to offer the following services in our only, free standing location in Mississauga :
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open but it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on our admission protocols.
Dr. Saldanha and his team are equipped to provide all the modern diagnostic services of a modern veterinary hospital including some specialized testing through our local referral laboratory.
We have a dedicated surgical suite which is designed for maximum asepsis for sterile procedures. We do not believe in administering unnecessary antibiotics after routine sterile procedures, instead taking pride in our sterile technique. Pain relief is always administered after every procedure to make recovery uneventful.
We provide digital radiology for patients from Great Danes to budgies. Images can be viewed throughout the hospital and shared with clients if necessary. On challenging cases, we can refer DICOM images to a referral service for expert evaluation.
We have dedicated spaces for dog, cat and bird boarding that are exclusive and remote from each other. Our dog kennels have heated floors for their comfort. Our cat condos have a bright location and are visible from our lobby. Birds may be housed in their own cages or ours are available.
We have an experienced groomer for all breeds of dogs and cats available 5 days a week in the morning. As he spends considerable amount of time on each groom, he is popular and gets booked up early.
Emergency & Urgent Care
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle urgent care but in case of a true emergency, we recommend you go directly to Mississauga-Oakville Veterinary Emergency Hospital (call 905-829-9444) or Campus Estates Animal Hospital in Guelph (for birds and exotics, call (519) 837-1212). Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency advice do not hesitate to call immediately.
We are available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. We will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
