The veterinarians at Upper Canada Animal Hospital are patient, committed and extremely fond of cats and dogs. Our medical practice is run with a deep passion and love for animals, large and small. Some of the medical services we offer include:

Medical Treatment

Dentistry:
As a pet owner, you would not typically look into your pet’s mouth to check if everything was okay unless you saw any signs of dental problems. A regular dental check-up for your pet allows us to recognize problems early so we are able to prevent dental disease such as:gingivitis, abscesses, tooth loss and decay, bone infections, tooth / bone fractures
.

Flea control: Preventing and treating a flea infestation has never been simpler or safer.  There are many treatment programs available.  Unfortunately there are many over the counter products that are neither safe nor effective.  Please contact our hospital for recommendations.

Medical assessments: Just like we need an annual medical check-up, your pet needs an annual exam as well.   Just as we age, our pets are also more prone to developing health issues.  We recommend more frequent examinations in our senior pets so we can focus on early prevention and detection.  This can be the key to minimizing health problems and keeping your pet happy and healhy well into their golden years.

Cancer treatment and chemotherapy: According to the Morris Animal Foundation, one in four dogs die of cancer. There’s plenty we can do to manage the illness. If your pet is not ‘himself /herself’, at any given point, check in with your veterinarian.

Skin conditions: If your pet is scratching himself/ herself more often than usual, it could be the result of a skin condition. Whether it is parasites or allergies, our team at Upper Canada Animal Hospital will help you take care of it at the earliest.

Endocrine Disorders: Endocrine disorders are quite common in our patients.  Thankfully, with early detection and appropriate treatment the vast majority of these conditions can be managed successfully.

With a wide array of medical treatments available, you are sure to find the answer to your pet’s problem. Contact us today to get quality health care for your pet.
