Calgary’s Top 10 Vets
1) Vets To Go
635 36 Avenue NE, Calgary, AB T2E 2L8
Vets to Go is an incredible service that comes to you. The staff here understand how important it is to see the animals in their own homes where they are comfortable. It is also a perk not to have to go outside in the winter, or have to wait in the waiting room as your dog gets more and more anxious! Rest easy, just because it is a home visit, it will not be a rush job! The vets will take their time to fully exam your dog and make sure to answer all of your questions. You will learn something new every visit, making this one of the best Calgary veterinary hospitals.
Glamorgan Animal Hospital
Suite 8, 3919 Richmond Road SW, Calgary, AB T3P 4P2
Dr. MacAulay is a fan favourite. He is incredibly thorough and clear throughout his examinations. He will make sure that you are aware of all your options, but won’t try and pressure you into anything, or make you feel like a bad pet owner for opting out. You will leave feeling satisfied that all of your questions have been answered, and that you have received the best care possible. He is known to be so good that dogs don’t even realize they are getting their shots!
Fishcreek 24Hr Pet Hospital
15311 Bannister Road SE, Calgary, AB T2X 1Z3
If you are looking for compassion when it comes to your vet, then look no further. The staff here go above and beyond, understanding that your pet is part of your family. They will allow you to have a private room for visits, which is particularly unheard of. Also, be at ease knowing a call and update on your pet’s health will be in your near future. This is one of the best Calgary veterinary hospitals, not only for their competitive pricing, but for their compassion and quality service.
Beddington Trail Animal Hospital
#5-176 Bedford Drive NE, Calgary, AB T3K 2M9
Beddington Trail Animal Hospital will restore your faith that there are good vets out there who don’t just care about upselling you. They really care about your dog’s health and will always offer the least invasive and most affordable options. Their prices are some of the best in the space and you will feel very content with the quality of care that you receive from them. Leaving your dog in their care will feel like a no-brainer, as the staff here truly care about their well-being. Ultimately, one of the best Calgary veterinary hospitals!
1016 9th Ave SW Calgary, AB T2P 1L9
Although Animal Clinic is smaller in size and services (they do not have ultrasound equipment), they do not lack size in heart. A great addition to our list of top Calgary veterinary hospitals because they are quick, efficient, thorough, caring, and experienced. You will be able to get an appointment promptly, and won’t have to wait forever in the waiting room. Your dog will feel at ease with Dr. Waldman, which will definitely lower your stress! Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with this clinic and the care that you will receive.
MacLeod Trail Animal Hospital
8910 MacLeod Trail SE Calgary, AB T2H 0M4
Dr. Pytka is an incredible veterinarian who takes the time to accurately and thoroughly diagnose your dogs. She will not do any invasive procedure unless absolutely necessary, and always strives to do the most cost friendly option (of course not at the cost of your dog’s health). The staff at MacLeod Trail absolutely care about animals and, most importantly, the well-being of your animal. Their goal, to make you and your pet feel at ease and confident in their services, is easily surpassable.
McKnight Veterinary Hospital
Granted, this is not the most inexpensive of all the Calgary veterinary hospitals; nonetheless, it is a great option. The services match the cost; the quality of care and experience that you receive is above standard. Furthermore, the office is open 24 hours, so there is no need to worry about where to go if your dog is suddenly ill one evening or weekend. Peace of mind is an essential part of the service that they provide.
17th Avenue Animal Hospital
233 17 Ave SW Calgary, AB T2S 0A4
The staff at this vet are incredibly talented people who are passionate and proud of the work that they do. They will not rush through an exam or ignore any of your questions. Wanting to provide you with the best quality care that they can, they will take the time to be thorough and precise. Not only are the staff friendly and compassionate, but they are understanding of the love that comes between a dog and their owner. Ultimately, you can’t go wrong with this choice and will feel confident with the care that you will receive.
Cambrian Animal Hospital
The staff at Cambrian animal hospital show that they truly care; they even have an office cat that they took in because it was about to be put down! This office is known to lower prices, stay late, and go above and beyond to provide you and your pet with the best care possible. They will always make sure that you are comfortable with the options available to you and will make sure that you are a part of the decision making process.
CARE Centre Animal Hospital
7140 12 Street SE Calgary, AB T2H 2Y4
CARE is a specialist office for pets; they have: Oncology, ultrasound, cardiology, internal medicine, ophthalmology, neurology, orthopaedic surgery, dermatology, soft tissue surgery, and radiology. Because this hospital offers such specialty services, you can expect the cost to be quite expensive, naturally. However, the staff here make sure that they are very clear with how much everything will cost, there are no hidden fees, and they will never continue with any procedures without clearing it with you first. Ultimately, this is a great place to take your dog if you are in need of specialty medicine and care.
