The East York Animal Clinic is not affiliated or owned by any corporate groups. Thus, our integrity is not compromised by association with pharmaceutical companies, major laboratories, or pet food companies. We are proudly independent.
As per regulations set out by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario, a veterinarian must have sufficient and recent working knowledge of an animal, obtained through an examination, to prescribe and dispense medications for the animal.
Puppy and kitten shots are given at 12 and 16 weeks of age. The initial rabies vaccine is given at 6 months of age, and a follow-up rabies booster vaccine is given at 18 months of age. Once these vaccines have been completed, our experience is that pets maintain an adequate immune response for the duration of their lives. Therefore, instead of annual re-vaccination, we recommend periodic titer testing to check this response.
A complete medical history is required to provide the veterinarian with important information regarding any health issues (past and present), possible adverse drug reactions, and results from diagnostics.
There is Green P parking (lot 8401) on the street in front of the clinic. Please do not park in the Shopper’s Drug Mart or TD Canada Trust parking lots, as your car may be towed.
If your pet has a pet insurance policy, please bring the appropriate claim forms with you to your appointment. We would be happy to complete these forms for you to submit your claims, but do not have them readily available at the clinic.
East York Animal Clinic is accredited by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario, and is also proud to have Registered Veterinary Technicians.
