Welcome to PetFocus Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital in Porters Lake, Nova Scotia
Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital was started in 1979 to provide quality veterinary service to the animals of the eastern shore region. The clinic was a separate building until 1988 when it was moved into the Lakeview Shopping Centre. The hospital grew with the surrounding communities and underwent an expansion in 2002.
The ESVH is staffed by several veterinarians, including Drs. Celeste Forgeron and Erin Fuller and a team of highly skilled technicians, veterinary assistants, and other client care specialists. You will also meet our resident cat Daisy when you visit. Daisy likes to greet our patients when they arrive and supervise the reception area (and catnip supply).
The team also provides veterinary care to injured wildlife. The injured wildlife is then transferred to the Hope for Wildlife Centre in Seaforth for further rehabilitation and eventual release. This hospital boasts an intimate and comfortable setting with a warm and inviting staff. Your pets are guaranteed the best of care.
Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital is a Cat Friendly Practice accredited at the Silver 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 separate cat entrance as well as our cat-only exam room that includes a cat pheromone diffuser to help cats feel comfortable and safe.
If you have any questions, please give us a call at 902.827.4257 and one of our team members will be happy to assist you.
