Welcome to Dartmouth Veterinary Hospital in Dartmouth, NS

The Dartmouth Veterinary Hospital has been in its current location since 1971. In mid-2004, after heavy destruction from Hurricane Juan, the newly renovated and expanded hospital reopened with a new laboratory area, large surgical preparation and treatment area, a large surgical suite, a dental suite, a radiology suite that houses state of the art Digital Radiology system, an Isolation Unit, dog runs, and dog and cat wards.

The hospital itself is designed to take advantage of as much natural light as possible, and much effort went into designing appropriate airflow and sound restriction. In the basement area, a multi-purpose room is used as a classroom for puppy socialization and obedience classes. The hospital works with multiple rescues, including Good Bones, GPAC, and Elderdog
