Senior Pet Awareness Month

We are celebrating senior pets! They are special in so many ways and we know senior pets need special care, but what should we do for them? How should we care for them to keep them healthy, happy and comfortable?

 

Let us Help

Welcome to Harbour Cities Veterinary Hospital in Dartmouth, NS

Harbour Cities Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1971 and has been growing continuously, moving to its present location in 1985. In 2008, the hospital underwent extensive renovations providing for a modern, fully heated/air conditioned Boarding facility as well as a full service Veterinary Hospital.

Many of our clients began their relationship with Harbour Cities as children accompanying their parents and now regularly bring their own pets and family to the hospital. Being centrally located for the past forty years, our client base has expanded throughout the HRM.

The doctors and staff of Harbour Cities are proud to have been directly involved with assisting Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada in bringing thousands of greyhounds off the racetracks and into loving, forever homes. Our goal of improving the lives of all animals has also led us to supporting and working with the local charity group ElderDog.

Aging the Right Way

The "Truth" About Aging

Speaking from experience, I am far too aware that our bodies change with age. There are things that I could do in my 20's and 30's that I cannot do with as much ease in my 40's. And physical activities that I used to not think twice about can now leave me stiff and sore for days. While the same is true to some respect with our pets, I feel there is somewhat of a myth about aging.
