Welcome to Woodbury Veterinary Hospital in Halifax

Woodbury Veterinary Hospital was established in 1981 at the corner of Robie and North Streets. The hospital has become a peninsula landmark and has contributed to the success of the neighbourhood providing part-time jobs and mentoring for many young people interested in pursuing work in the veterinary setting as a career and by donating to local charities or participating in fundraising.

The hospital offers a healthcare team committed to enriching the loving bond between clients and their pets by providing compassionate, quality care. Accompanied by a team of technicians the dedicated veterinarians provide comprehensive care, with a special interest in pet dentistry.

The culture of the hospital has encouraged veterinary continuing education and has led to early implementation of advances in veterinary medicine.
