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. Celeste Forgeron and Teigen Bond 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.

Exercise in Senior Pets

Weight and Exercise for Senior Pets

As pets age, their metabolism seems to slow down. This, along with a tendency towards developing metabolic and endocrine diseases such as diabetes and hypothyroidism, can lead to weight gain and/or failure to lose weight. Senior pets still need lots of nutrients, so increasing exercise is often times better than cutting back on their food in order to help them lose weight. Exercise also gives senior pets something to do with their time, instead of just lying around all day.
