Veterinary Care for Your Pet

Finding a Veterinarian

Establishing a relationship with a veterinarian is the most important step you can take as a pet owner.

While the OHS cannot recommend any veterinarian, you can search for local veterinarians through the College of Veterinarians of Ontario.

Here are a few tips to choose the right veterinarian for you:

  • Ask your friends. They can offer feedback about the veterinary clinic they use.
  • Consider hours of operation. If you work week days, it may be more convenient to select a clinic that has early morning, evening or weekend hours.
  • If you can walk or take a quick drive to your veterinarian, it may reduce your pet’s stress when traveling to their clinic. City transit also accepts animals.
  • Do you need specialty services? Not all vets have expertise with rabbits, and fearful cats may do better with a cats-only vet. Some animals are very sensitive about handling, and some vets specialize in fear-free handling. Some vets will even make house calls.
