Please visit our experienced and professional team who will be very happy to find the right veterinary product specific to the needs of your pet.
We offer a wide variety of excellent quality canine and feline diets (pediatric and large breed pediatric dog food, maintenance & senior diets and therapeutic diets for specific medical conditions).
Veterinarians and technicians in animal health have studied nutrition as part of their curriculums. All members of our staff receive regular training about the available diets and their clinical uses. We are in the best possible position for advising you in your choice of animal nutrition.
Also, all of our diets are 100% guaranteed. If you are not satisfied, or if your cat or dog turns his nose up at the new menu, it will be our pleasure to reimburse you or suggest another product.
An excellent quality pediatric diet is well balanced with all the necessary nutriments to promote healthy growth and development for puppies and kittens. We recommend that the basis of the diet be made up of dry kibble to promote your animal dental health. However, we believe it is important to add canned food to your kitten’s diet to get him accustomed to the different textures and tastes. Canned food helps to increase water intake, which is important for cats who generally don’t drink much water. Certain illnesses in cats require as part of the treatment plan a canned formula. It will be easier to transition to the new diet if he has already been introduced to this texture.
The suggested age for transitioning from a growth diet to an adult diet is generally 6 to 8 months for cats and from 6 to 12 months for dogs, depending on the size of the breed. Your veterinarian will be able to evaluate the needs of your animal in consultation and recommend the appropriate diet for this stage of life.
We suggest a dental diet for a healthy cat or dog at the moment you make the transition to an adult food. As well as preventing an accumulation of tartar, this light formula will prevent weight gain that could occur once the pet is full grown. The dental diet combined with regular brushing of your pet’s teeth will contribute to maintaining an optimum oral hygiene.
Other types of diets are available upon veterinary recommendation for specific health problems:
It is always important to consult your veterinarian before your animal transitions to a therapeutic diet. Certain medical conditions can require restrictions in your pet’s nutrition. Knowing your pet’s medical history will allow us to guide you in the diet choice.
We all love to be able to give our pets little treats, but it can be easy to overindulge! Even though veterinary treats are low in calories, it is still important to give small quantities throughout the day in order to prevent weight gain.
A tasty choice is available for your furry friends!
The physiology (pH, cellular renewal, quantity of sebum produced) of our pet’s skin is very different from ours. Using a product that is not adapted to an animal’s skin can cause irritation, dryness and itching. A member of our team will be happy to advise you in the choice of a routine shampoo, ideal for your pet.
Dental hygiene is a very important part of the overall health of our pets. The choice of a dental diet along with regular brushing of the teeth and an addition of dental treats can assure good oral health.
It is important to make a habit of regularly checking your pet’s ears. Preventive cleaning helps to keep ears clean and healthy. Ears that appear red, dirty, or produce a distinctive bad odour are often a sign of an ear problem. It is important to consult your veterinarian. The frequency of ear cleaning may vary from pet to pet but it is recommended to inspect and clean your pet’s ears at least once per month, particularly for dogs.
Different cleaning solutions are available (Epi-Otic by Virbac and Routeen by Vetoquinol).
Regular use of supplements such as glucosamine chlorhydrate and chondroitin, specially formulated for animals, may be an important choice in maintaining good joint mobility in your pets.
Nutritional supplements are available for a variety of uses and medical conditions. Many are available over the counter, but it is advised to consult your veterinarian for proper use.
We frequently hear about the problem of hairballs in cats. The tongue of a cat is rough and collects hair during normal grooming practices, which is then swallowed. The fur is digested and excreted regularly with bowel movements. It sometimes occurs that a cat is unable to pass this accumulation of fur in a ‘natural’ way and instead vomits. Regular administration of a laxative paste may help cats with hair balls. Vetoquinol offers Vitalax or Laxatone in malt or tuna flavour.
Fleas and ticks are never desirable on your pets. Luckily there exists a variety of excellent products, available at the clinic over-the-counter to prevent or treat an invasion of these parasites.
Other products are available by prescription for prevention of parasites. Ask one of our team members for information.
There are many methods of training. At our hospital we recommend the use of a Gentle Leader head collar. Used correctly, this collar is a safe, gentle, non-punitive, and effective way of leash training your dog. For enjoyable walks with your companion animal, and an assurance of a calm and confident walking experience with your dog at your side, the Gentle Leader may be the answer.
Exotic animals have specific requirements based on the type of species. Dre Maude Lebeau, who is responsible for the department of birds and exotic animals, has carefully selected a variety of clinically proven products for use with exotic animals. We carry a variety of excellent quality food and regular hygiene products.
