Welcome to PetFocus Veterinary Hospital in Bedford, NS

The PetFocus Veterinary Hospital, Bedford South, is a unique facility with an open concept, centered around a state-of-the-art surgery suite. Viewing windows allow you to see from the front door to the back door. They also facilitate an environment of collaboration and transparency and give clients a sense of reassurance that their precious pets will receive excellent care.

This modern facility was established in 2013 by the PetFocus Veterinary Group. The hospital offers comprehensive veterinary services and has a special focus on orthopaedic services. Dogs with fractures, mobility issues, lameness or other orthopaedic concerns will benefit from an integrated team of vets and their skilled support teams. Dr. Rushton and his team have performed over 2000 Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy (TPLO) Surgeries since 2003 – thousands of dogs have been helped to get back on their feet and enjoy an active life with their owners.

Comprehensive services that ensure the health of cats, dogs and other small pets are provided here as well. Our skilled and caring veterinarians are passionate about helping new puppies, and kittens have healthy lives – our team offers advice about wellness, nutrition, behaviour, parasites and more!

Our animal hospital is conveniently located at the exit of Larry Uteck Drive with the Bicentennial Highway, near Bayers Lake. New clients are welcome to visit this sparkling new hospital.

Parasite Prevention

It’s that time of year again! As much as we all enjoy the warmer days, we’re not the only ones! Any time the temperature is over 4˚C outside the ticks and fleas will come out (even if there is snow on the ground).
