Niagara Pet Hospital – Excellent Care for your Family Pet

We understand your pet is more than an animal living in your home. Your pet is a part of your family, your best friend, an extension of who you are. Our philosophy here at Upper Canada Animal Hospital is:

“While we can never attain perfection, in the pursuit of perfection we can attain excellence. This is our commitment to you and your family, for you deserve no less.”

Our commitment to you is to provide the highest quality of medical and surgical care possible, in an empathetic and compassionate manner, to ensure a long, happy and healthy relationship with your pet. We know how important your pet is to your family, understand how concerned you are about them and appreciate the unique relationship that you have with them.

Nineteen years of clinical practice in conjunction with a very strong commitment to Continuing Education and Surgical training has culminated in the creation of the Upper Canada Animal Hospital Surgical Referral Service. This service sees Dr. Turpel treating pets throughout Ontario and upstate New York with animal hospitals referring cases to him on a regular basis.
