Welcome to PetFocus Eastern Shore Veterinary Hospital in Porters Lake

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 Teigen Bond 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.

The Importance of Year-Round Flea and Tick Preventatives

Many people do not realize that even in a colder climate, fleas and ticks can still be active all year. Many people keep their pets on preventatives from spring until fall (generally April until November or December), but is that enough? We see pets all year round with fleas and ticks on them. This can leave pets vulnerable to itchy flea bites, flea allergies, anemia, as well as Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses.
