During the month of September, we are talking about skin disease. Symptoms include itching, dryness, redness, sores, scaling, shedding and hair loss, as well as behaviours such as excessive licking and scratching. Uncover the facts behind skin disease with your vet.
Welcome to Centretown Veterinary Hospital in Ottawa, Ontario
Centretown Veterinary Hospital was founded in 2008 by Dr. Emily Black. The location was chosen to serve the downtown core including the surrounding neighbourhoods of Centretown, Little Italy, Hintonburg, Lowertown, and Wellington Village with a full function veterinary hospital offering a complete range of services such as preventive, medical, surgical, and dental care, by considerate and compassionate staff. We invite you to come in and take a tour of our hospital!
Centretown Veterinary Hospital is proud to be listed as one of the Top 3 Veterinary clinics in Ottawa, ON. This award is presented to veterinary hospitals based on reputation, history, ratings, location, satisfaction, trust and cost to the general excellence.
Below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
We are continuing with our "closed hospital" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will direct you either to the back door located at the back of the parking lot if your pet is a dog. This is where you will open the door and tether your dog to the wall on the inside with the leash provided or for our cat friends the assistant will direct you to leave your cat at the front door in their carrier. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to the same place that you originally placed them at intake. We will take payment over the phone or by e transfer. Medications, food, certificates and all other supplies will be with your pet when you pick them up.
We continue to accept the use of credit cards over the phone or e-transfer as the preferred payment method.
We are continuing with curbside pickup of food and medications (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
