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 our clients 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 their precious pets will receive excellent care. We offer comprehensive veterinary services and have a special focus on orthopedic treatments.
PetFocus Veterinary Hospital, Bedford South is also a Silver accredited AAFP Cat Friendly Practice®.
Our animal hospital is conveniently located at the exit of Larry Uteck Drive with the Bicentennial Highway, near Bayers Lake. Living and working in Bedford, NS, we are surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes and warm people, with a strong community spirit. Bedford is a suburban area that is about a 2-hour drive away from Halifax. We enjoy living in such a peaceful and welcoming region that was once named by Macleans magazine as the “Best Community to Live in Canada.”

Last updated: July 14, 2020
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 5, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
