Farm and Large Animal Services

Since 1995, our clinic has been dedicated to ensuring the health of farm and large animals. We treated these types of patients exclusively before expanding our care to include small, companion animals. With over 25 years of experience, you can trust our team to provide excellent care for your farm and large animals. We also provide mobile services, so we can tend to your animal’s health needs at your location. To schedule an appointment for your animal, please contact us at 403.335.3519.

    How do you prioritize their care?

    Farm and large animals require special care and attention, which our veterinary team is able to provide after years of specialist experience. Whether it’s conducting routine veterinary exams, treating health issues or prescribing medication, we work closely with you to ensure your animals are healthy. We consult with owners on an ongoing basis to provide insight on ways they can care for their livestock/farm and large animals. Our clinic is required to register with our provincial licensing body to keep us accountable with providing a high-quality of standard care.

    Dear Clients,

    With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.

    1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
