Dogs and the Grain-Free Diet

A Recent FDA Report Suggest a Link Between Grain-Free Diets and the Development of Heart Disease in Dogs

There has been a lot of media attention regarding the recent FDA report that suggests a link between grain-free diets and the development of heart disease in dogs. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the food you are feeding your pet, as always, we recommend a conversation with your veterinarian to gain their advice as part of a regular check-up or other visit to your pet hospital. Our veterinarians are here to help guide you on the nutritional options available and recommend those best suited for your pet.

Dear Clients,

Effective Tuesday March 1st, we will once again be allowing one pet parent to accompany their pet into their appointment. We will continue to allow two family members to attend end of life appointments.

Please remember kindness matters! Disrespectful or unkind behaviour toward our team will not be tolerated and may result in refusal of service.
