May:
These appointments are not yet available to be booked. Please read below for the next call in date. For those looking for an appointment in April, please read the important changes below!:

Due to the overwhelming demand for canine appointments we have made some changes (as of November 1st, 2015) to the way we will be accepting canine appointment requests ongoing. To better target those that truly need our low cost services due to financial limitations, we will be releasing canine appointments first to individuals receiving ODSP, OW, and GIS. Proof of income supplement (monthly statement) will be required to be shown at the time of the appointment, otherwise the appointment will be denied. All surgical rates will remain the same, but appointment priority will be given to those on a form of accepted income supplements. Once one (1) week has passed we will then release all remaining appointments to the general public. Please note this will often result in all large breed appointments to be full due to the limitation on the number of appointments we can accommodate, so we strongly recommend owners of large breed animals (over 35lbs) to seek service with their local veterinarian.


If you wish to book an appointment in May and are receiving income supplementation from ODSP, OW, or GIS please hold off requests until: Tuesday April 5th.

If you wish to book an appointment in May and are not receiving income supplementation please hold off requests until: Tuesday April 12th.

Canine (DOG) Appointment requests will only be accepted through our phone lines so please be patient as we expect to receive a high volume of calls. All email, voice-mail, or walk-in canine surgical requests will not be accepted for to ensure that it is fair for all! Please feel free to call us often for any upcoming cancellations!

For future dates (as we only book 1 month in advance), please follow our Facebook page or check back here frequently for news on the next opening for appointment requests!
