Passionate, Empathetic Care for Your Dogs & Cats

Barrhaven Veterinary Hospital has been taking care of the health and well-being of pets since 1992. It is our goal to help your dog or cat feel comfortable at each visit. When everyone is relaxed, we can more easily provide medical care and veterinary services without causing additional stress. This approach helps to maximize your pet's health care as well as maintain and strengthen the bond between pet parents and their four-legged family members.

On top of providing your dog or cat with love and affection, one of the best things you can do for them is keep them healthy. We help make that possible by encouraging our clients to maintain a regular schedule of examinations and vaccinations for their furry friends. This routine preventive care helps to protect the long-term health of pets.

If your four-legged companion becomes sick or injured, our team is here to provide quality care with professionalism and empathy in a facility designed to meet your pet's healthcare needs.

Our Commitment to Veterinary Care

Dogs and cats not only bring joy and companionship into our lives, but they also teach us empathy, compassion, and unconditional love. We believe that they make us better people and therefore deserve our absolute best. By creating a calm, welcoming environment, we can help reduce fear, anxiety, and stress during each appointment.

About Our Facility

Our 1,940 square-foot facility was designed to provide a comfortable, safe, hygienic environment for treating dogs and cats. Because fresh air circulation and preventing the spread of germs are so important in a veterinary hospital, an engineering firm was hired to design and oversee the installation of the ventilation, heating, and air conditioning.

Waiting Room

Our brightly coloured waiting room is divided into separate areas for dogs and cats. Dividers between the seats in the dog waiting area make it possible for clients to control interactions between dogs sharing the waiting area. Shelves on the wall in the cat waiting area are provided for nervous cats to safely sit and watch the activities in the waiting area, until it’s their turn to go into the exam room.

Exam & Treatment Areas

We have private exam rooms for every appointment. We also have a surgical suite with equipment that ensures sterility of surgical instruments. Our hospital features an X-ray unit, two anesthetic machines, oxygen delivery, fluid pumps for administering intravenous fluids, equipment for dental treatment including a dental X-ray, and laboratory equipment for analyzing blood samples when pets are ill.

Patient housing is situated so that staff can keep an eye on sick patients from each treatment room.
