Welcome to Clayton Park Veterinary Hospital in Halifax

The Veterinarians, Technicians, Vet Assistants and client relations staff at Clayton Park Veterinary Hospital have been providing high-quality pet care in Halifax since 1979. Over the past 33 years, Dr Ron Abrahams has been instrumental in growing the practice from a one-doctor clinic to a multi-doctor hospital. Located in The Clayton Park Shopping Centre on Lacewood Drive, the hospital has undergone two major renovations, expanding it from an 800 square foot clinic into a full service modern 3000 square foot facility.

Over the past ten years the Clayton Park team has provided medical care for ElderDog, GPAC (Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada), Bide Awhile Animal Shelter and The Labrador Rescue Organization to name just a few. Now joined by Dr Tim Farrow and  Dr Pam MacKay, the team is very proud of the work they have done for these invaluable groups and are committed to a continuing partnership with animal welfare charities to improve the lives of all animals.

What’s for Dinner?

Today I had Kraft Dinner for lunch.  I am a big fan of Kraft Dinner from time to time and I enjoy it with a little bit of ketchup and pepper.  When I am feeling extra indulgent, I will add grated cheddar cheese and stir it in until it melts.  Yum.  I know that this is not an ideal lunch.

Taurine & Our Feline Friends: Why is it Needed in Their Diet?

Taurine is an essential amino acid that is needed in felines for their diet. Taurine is an animal-based protein, and it is found in wet and dry diets alike. These include beef hearts, liver, kidneys, shrimp, and even salmon.  There are multiple amino acids that the feline body needs to function normally, but Taurine may arguably be the most important. Taurine cannot be produced by the body naturally and, therefore, needs to be supplied in the diet that is fed to our babies daily. In fact, cats have limited ability to manufacture taurine naturally, which is why it is essential to be supplemented in their diet.
