Undivided Attention from Vaughan Veterinarians

You will find that at many clinics, the doctors are in and out of the room with your pet, always in a hurry, and leave most of the important discussions to technicians and other members of their team. One of the keys to our own success is the relationship that we strive to build between doctors, the patients and their owners.

Our team’s skills are further enhanced with our access and availability of the necessary equipment and services to provide superior pet medical care. We are an up to date, full-service veterinary hospital and can offer your pets with exactly what they need.

The doctors at Thornhill Veterinary Clinic provide one on one care for your pet with thorough examinations, diagnostic investigations, and even phone consultations with the pet’s owner. In fact, if you call in requesting to speak to one of our veterinarians, we will not transfer you to a technician. One of our doctors will return your call, so that you can be completely confident that you are receiving the most up to date and accurate information possible.

Our veterinarians take pride in their commitment to taking the time to thoroughly educate clients on options available for their pets. The doctors will discuss the anticipated outcomes of any services with you. Our doctors will ensure that you have all of the relevant knowledge that you need in order to make a well-informed decision for your pet.
