Our veterinarians are all graduates of the Ontario Veterinary College with years of experience caring for dogs, cats and other animals of all shapes and sizes.  Our patients are cared for by a team of four full-time veterinarians as well as a pair of locum veterinary surgeons who visit the practice to perform specialized surgical procedures (specifically our laparoscopic procedures). The doctors are all supported by a compassionate team including our practice manager, customer service team, veterinary technicians and animal care assistants.  The key thing to remember is that we are pet owners just like our clients… at time of writing, our EVF family owns eight dogs and fifteen cats plus one horse and we also care for our two resident clinic cats!


We are an independently-owned full-service animal hospital for dogs and cats, offering a range of services described here on our website. We strongly advocate preventative medicine, good nutrition and dental care to try to prevent issues, but we are equipped to deal with medical issues and emergencies which may arise. We aim to care for each of our patients with thoughtfulness and compassion. Part of our commitment to our patients is supporting their families in making the right decisions for their beloved pets.   One of the things that we believe sets Eglinton Vet apart is our personal connection with clients and the amount of time we spend communicating with owners whether their animal is in the hospital or at home.


 We try to be there for our clients when they need us.  We are only a phone call away if there is a question, and we pride ourselves in this personal connection with our clients. We have appointment times from early in the morning (starting 8am or earlier) until well into the evening 5 days a week, as well as office hours on Saturday.  


We are proud to live and work in North Toronto, close to the vibrant Yonge and Eglinton intersection of the city. All four of our full-time veterinarians grew up in the neighbourhood and genuinely feel that it is a privilege to work at a veterinary clinic with over 80 years of history. 


With a passion for working with animals, we are proud to be part of a profession that helps people and their pets.  We recognize that dogs and cats are cherished parts of the families that visit us.


I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must that we will be kind and take care of their needs… [They] are an obligation put on us, a responsibility that we have no right to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty.
