Welcome to PetFocus Veterinary Hospital in Bedford, Nova Scotia

The PetFocus Veterinary Hospital – Bedford South, is a unique facility with an open concept, centred around a state-of-the-art surgery suite established in 2013 by the PetFocus Veterinary Group. Viewing windows allow you to see from the front door to the back door. They also facilitate an environment of collaboration and transparency and provide our clients with a sense of reassurance that your precious pets will receive excellent care.

We offer comprehensive veterinary services and have a special focus on orthopaedic services. Dogs with fractures, mobility issues, lameness or other orthopaedic concerns will benefit from our integrated team of veterinarians and their skilled support teams.

Since 2003, our hospital has performed over 2000 Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomy (TPLO) Surgeries, helping thousands of dogs to get back on their feet to enjoy an active life with their owners.

Comprehensive services that ensure the health of cats, dogs and other small pets are provided here as well. Our skilled and caring veterinarians are passionate about helping new puppies and kittens have healthy lives – our team offers advice about wellness, nutrition, behaviour, parasites and more!

Our animal hospital is conveniently located at the exit of Larry Uteck Drive with the Bicentennial Highway, near Bayers Lake. New clients are welcome to visit this sparkling new hospital.

PetFocus Veterinary Hospital, Bedford South is a Silver accredited AAFP Cat Friendly Practice®. This accreditation is given to clinics and hospitals who are aiming to make veterinary visits less stressful for cats and their owners.
