Welcome to Clayton Park Veterinary Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia

The Veterinarians, Technicians, Vet Assistants and client relations staff at Clayton Park Veterinary Hospital have been providing high-quality pet care in Halifax since 1979. Over the past 33 years, Dr. Ron Abrahams has been instrumental in growing the practice from a one-doctor clinic to a multi-doctor hospital. Located in The Clayton Park Shopping Centre on Lacewood Drive, the hospital has undergone two major renovations, expanding it from an 800-square foot clinic into a full service modern 3000 square foot facility.

Over the past ten years, the Clayton Park team has provided medical care for ElderDog, GPAC (Greyhound Pets of Atlantic Canada), Bide Awhile Animal Shelter and The Labrador Rescue Organization to name just a few. Now joined by Dr. Tim Farrow, Dr. Pam Mackay, and Dr. Erin Cambier, the team is very proud of the work they have done for these invaluable groups and are committed to a continuing partnership with animal welfare charities to improve the lives of all animals.

Clayton Park Veterinary Hospital is also a Cat Friendly Practice accredited at the Gold level. Our staff handle and treat cats with understanding, gentleness and respect, and make every effort to ensure your visit is as stress-free for you and your cat as possible. You and your feline family member will enjoy our cat-only exam room that includes a cat pheromone diffuser to help cats feel comfortable and safe.

We have been awarded the platinum award in the Professional Services – Best Veterinary Services category in the 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Kirsty's Farewell to CPVH

The past 5 years at Clayton Park Veterinary Hospital have been incredible. Exciting, fun, challenging, heartbreaking, eye-opening, stressful, and at times, difficult; but amazing. Every day that passes, I have fallen more and more in love with animal medicine.

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 902.443.4345. We will take a history of your pet over the phone, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. Once the examination is finished, we will call to discuss our recommended treatment plan over the phone and then return to your vehicle with your pet. Please ensure your pet has a properly fitted collar or is in a secure carrier. Please remove any additional clothing or blankets prior to our staff handling our patients to minimize risk to our team.

2. We are still OPEN but are now working in two shifts with reduced hours, reduced staff numbers and a need to close for extensive cleaning between shifts.
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 am - 6:00 pm
Friday: 9:00 am - 6:00 pm
Saturday: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

3. 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.

4. 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. You may see our team members wearing additional protective gear when interacting with our clients and patients.

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.
