The care and compassion shown to my family this past week as we had to say goodbye to our beloved cat, Rocky, was comforting and appreciated. We weren't rushed in saying our goodbyes and Dr. Veitch explained everything that was going to take place. I can't thank them enough. Kathy Hug
This is the hospital I took all my furry family members for over 15 years. Both cats and dogs... The doctors and the entire hospital personnel are very professional and kind and gentle. I read some reviews raising concerns about costs, but - sadly - medical treatment for pets is still costly anywhere you go, no matter which veterinary hospital or clinic. The quality of the medical care at Erin Mills Pet Hospital is what really mattered and matters to me!
my dad has been a client here for years with our family pets and today I called just to ask the examination price for my cat (which by the way I priced around and here is the cheapest you'll find!) and the veterinarian must have picked up the call in passing and she literally answered all of my questions about why I wanted an exam for my cat and gave me some really amazing advice. I feel like she was extremely helpful and kind to give me this advice free of charge and seemed so educated and knowledgeable. I scheduled an exam for next week anyways because I would love to have her thoughts on my cat's health since she seemed to know her stuff! I am so glad that they accommodated me and I thankful for their low costs as well. Other vets are so expensive and refuse to even discuss anything over the phone- they just want you to come in so you pay the exam fee. But speaking to the vet over the phone even encouraged me even more and I just think they are phenomenal !
I recently move to canada some months ago with my pets dog and a cat my dog has 8 years and they were so amazing with him, I love this Vets since we arrive they treat us as family, my dog never feel scared to go the vet, i recommend this vets they really treat your pets as their own, not to expensive the price is right for the amazing attention you receive
