Welcome to Companion Animal Hospital in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

At Companion Animal Hospital, we strive to deliver the most up-to-date treatment and information for your pet within a positive and outgoing environment.

We have been serving the pets and people of Dartmouth and surrounding areas since 1996. Our facility and services are designed to assist in routine preventive care for pets from youth into their golden years.

Our on-site laboratory services allow us to closely monitor critically ill patients by running complete blood counts, chemistry, and electrolyte analysis. For any test that we are unable to run in-house, we will send it to an external lab on the same day. We also have a digital radiograph machine that allows us to see both bone and soft tissue changes. By operating digitally, it allows us to quickly send x-rays to radiologists and referral surgeons for additional insight.

Our seasoned surgery team are professionals in both elective (spay and neuters) and non-elective procedures. We are pleased to offer orthopaedic and basic ophthalmic services.

We look forward to serving you and your fluffy, scaled, and feathered friends, both big and small.
