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.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 902-445-8387. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours:
Monday: 10:00am - 4:00pm
Tuesday: 3:00pm - 8:00pm
Wednesday: 2:00pm - 8:00pm
Thursday: 10:00am - 3:00pm
Friday: 10:00am - 4:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am - 1:00pm

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
