Have Dr. John Perform an Orthopedic Surgery at Your Clinic

To treat as many pets with orthopedic issues as possible, Dr. John travels to veterinary clinics throughout the GTA and north of the GTA on a weekly basis to perform orthopedic procedures. If you are interested in having our team pay a visit to your clinic to perform a surgery, we invite you to contact Ashley at 519-927-5775.

Our goal is always to provide you with the highest standard of service, and your patient with the most compassionate and professional care we can offer. To help us achieve this goal, we have found that cooperation and preparation can effectively minimize disruption to your practice, and allow our team to work in a more timely, efficient manner.
