Veterinary Referrals

For over 25 years, our team has been collaborating with other practices in the region to provide the best care for all our patients. We sometimes seek their expertise, and send complex cases to them for a second opinion. In the same way, we often care for patents sent to us by their primary veterinarian, especially with regards to our expertise in equine, farm/large animal and rabbit treatments.

How do I book an appointment at your hospital?

If your primary vet has referred us for your pet, we will coordinate with each other to schedule your appointment. You will contacted via phone or email about the specifics of your appointment. You can also call us at 403.335.3519 to reserve your spot.

What do I do if my pet needs emergency or urgent care?

We have an After Hours emergency service available. Please call us at 403.335.3519 to be directed to our on-call doctor.

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.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
