We look forward to meeting you and your pet!  Our full service animal hospital has been serving the Winnipeg community since 1959.  We pride ourselves on quality medicine and surgery and provide flexible options based on your needs.

We offer in-depth diagnostics including in-house blood evaluation, digital imaging, ultrasound, dental care, grooming and preventative vaccination.  The overall general care of your pet, such as proper nutrition, hygiene and behaviour are addressed by our knowledgeable veterinarians and support team.

We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about the resources available and our responsibilities to the companion animal community.


Our dedicated friends at D'Arcy's A.R.C. are committed to providing shelter, veterinary care, and adoption services for stray and abandoned cats and dogs.  We have worked closely with them for a number of years offering services such as spaying and neutering, examinations and vaccinations, medical treatment and post-adoption veterinary care.

Why do cats seem to suffer urinary obstruction more often in the cooler months?

While there are many reasons urinary obstructions occur, one may be because cats typically drink water regularly during the hot summer months. As the seasons shift to cooler temperatures they are more likely to consume less fluids due to the drop in temperature or perhaps because of decreased activity and/or forced confinement.

It is recommended to add water to each serving of canned food in order to increase the daily intake. Here are some additional links for review:
