Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Does your canine companion growl when you want to sit on YOUR couch, not play well with other dogs or people or suffer from separation anxiety? These are just some of the examples of behavioural issues clients face on a day to day basis. If you feel you have a dog like the one described above, please call us at the clinic to schedule a behavioural consult with one of our caring veterinarians.
The wonderful veterinarians at the College Manor Veterinary Hospital would be happy to discuss different behavioural modifications with you and make recommendations to help you get back that wonderful relationship you used to have with your canine friend.
What happens at the consultation?
When you come in for a behavioural consult our veterinarian will take a thorough history from you on your canine companion, do a full comprehensive physical exam and make their recommendations based on those findings.
Will my pet insurance policy cover the cost of consultation?
There are quite a few Pet Insurance Companies on the market now, and each one has different policies and items which they cover. It is always best to check with your specific insurance provider anytime you have questions about whether a treatment will be covered.
What to expect after the consultation?
After your behavioural consultation with one of the veterinarians at The College Manor Veterinary Hospital you should have all the tools you require to start working with your animal companion on their behavioural modification journey. Each animal and situation are unique, and as such, there is no “textbook” fix for the problems you may be experiencing with your pet. We hope you will take the tips and tricks we offer and start implementing them immediately, but we would also like to keep in close contact with you during the initial re-training period to offer support, encouragement or different tactics depending on how things are progressing. We would love to hear from you as often as required to eventually rehabilitate your animal companion into the loving, well-behaved pet you expected to adopt.
Do you know the most common disease in dogs and cats? It is not liver or kidney disease, or even thyroid disease. It is dental disease! Did you know that dental disease affects over 80% of dogs over the age of 3 years, and between 50-90% of cats over 4 years?
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, 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
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 905.853.4706. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Note: Due to the continued health precautions recommended by Health Canada, we have elected to discontinue 'in clinic' pick-ups for items ordered via our Online Store including both medications and food with immediate effect. The delivery option is extremely flexible and they will deliver wherever you choose.

We are OPEN with the following hours:
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 am - 7:00 pm Friday: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm Saturday: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm Sunday: CLOSED
