PetWorks started with the opening of the Woodlawn Veterinary Hospital in 1979, a tiny 600 square foot space in Dartmouth’s Woodlawn Mall. In 1985, the practice moved to the Atlantic Superstore location on Portland Street in Dartmouth. Twenty years and three major renovations later it became PetWorks Veterinary Hospital and Pet Resort at a brand new location at 850 Portland Street in Dartmouth/Cole Harbour created to meet the changing needs of our pets and their pet parents.
This large new facility is designed to deliver veterinary services in the Hospital on the upper level and boarding/daycare services in a modern Pet Resort on the lower level.
The Petworks Veterinary Hospital is proud to be an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Our clinic follows the rigorous qualifications of the American Animal Hospital Association to ensure your furry family members receive the high-quality veterinary care they deserve. These qualifications include over 800 standards of good practice and passing full-clinic inspections.
