Wellness Clinics for Ottawa's Pets

The OHS offers basic wellness and preventive care appointments for dogs and cats whose families may not be able to access veterinary services. Preventive care helps protect your pet’s health and helps prevent disease.

Our service includes:

  • A wellness exam with a veterinarian (mandatory)
  • Vaccination (core vaccines and rabies)
  • Deworming
  • A microchip
  • Ear cleaning and nail trim (as needed)
  • Flea and/or tick treatment (as needed)

Wellness clinics take place monthly at the Ottawa Humane Society, located at 245 West Hunt Club Rd. Appointments are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Clients who are eligible may request an appointment for a maximum of two pets per household.

  • More clinic dates coming soon.
