Welcome to Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital in Porters Lake

Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital was started in 1979 to provide quality veterinary service to the animals of the eastern shore region. The clinic was a separate building until 1988 when it was moved into the Lakeview Shopping Centre. The hospital grew with the surrounding communities and underwent an expansion in 2002.

The ESVH is staffed by several veterinarians, including Drs. Shelagh Cantley, Celeste Forgeron and Cindy Rodgerson, and a team of highly skilled technicians, veterinary assistants, and other client care specialists. You will also meet our resident cat Daisy when you visit. Daisy likes to greet our patients when they arrive and supervise the reception area (and catnip supply).

The team also provides veterinary care to injured wildlife. The injured wildlife is then transferred to the Hope for Wildlife Centre in Seaforth for further rehabilitation and eventual release. This hospital boasts an intimate and comfortable setting with a warm and inviting staff. Your pets are guaranteed the best of care.

Porcupines are members of the rodent family. They are equipped with a coat of sharp quills along their back, sides and tail. This suit of armour protects them from predatory attacks. Porcupines are prevalent during the warmer months. They are nocturnal animals, which means they are most active during the night. They have the most encounters with dogs at dawn and dusk.

Tapeworms

Tapeworms are parasites that live in the small intestines of many species, including humans.Depending on the tapeworm species, their length may vary from 1 cm to 10 meters in length. Other than the tapeworm head, their body consists of small segments called proglottids. These are egg sacs that break off the tail of the tapeworm. Both the eggs and proglottids are released in animal feces. Of all the tapeworms our pets may carry, the Echionococcus sp pose the most disease risk in people.
