SERVICES WE PROVIDE
How We Provide Care
The competent and compassionate staff at Atlantic Veterinary Hospital strives to provide your pet with the highest quality of veterinary medical, surgical and dental care available. Our full service medical facility offers a wide array of services including physical examinations for wellness or illness, vaccinations, surgery, digital radiology, limited orthopedic surgeries performed on location, therapeutic laser, dental radiology, dental care, preventive medicine, weight loss and senior pet screenings. Our full on-site laboratory offers blood work, parasite diagnosis, cytology, cultures and urine analysis with convenient, fast results. For those that need more in-depth testing, we are able to send samples to both UPEI and Ontario for these services. We also have an on-site pharmacy where most of the medications your pet may need are readily available.
In addition to these comprehensive medical services, we also offer a wide variety of valuable services for our patients including:
Emergency/Critical Care (shared after business hours with several clinics)
Anal Gland Expression
Minor grooming services to patients requiring minor sedation and anesthesia.
PUPPY AND KITTEN PROGRAMS
Adopting a new puppy or kitten is an exciting time for all! New pet exams are one our favorite parts of the day. The first year of a puppy or kitten’s life is also the time of the greatest financial commitment. Because of the importance of getting a great start in life, we have developed vaccination programs that benefit both your new baby and your pocket book.
Diagnostic tools allow us to see more in-depth picture of your pet’s health, beyond what a physical examination can tell us. At Atlantic Veterinary Hospital, we offer a range of diagnostic services to our beloved patients, including digital radiography (x-ray), blood/urine/fecal testing, cytology and electrocardiography (ECG). Our in-house laboratory allows us to get test results quickly, often the same day, so we can accurately diagnose illness and begin treatment in a timely manner.
No matter how routine, surgical procedures can be a source of stress for many pets and even more so for their owners. At Atlantic Veterinary Hospital, our goal is to make the experience as comfortable, stress-free and safe as possible for everyone involved. Our skilled, caring staff delivers compassionate care before, during and following each procedure.
Each anesthetized patient has its pulse rate and oxygen levels monitored throughout the procedure. Higher risk patients also have blood pressure and ECG monitoring. Changes in values on the monitors allow us to make changes to medications and pain control to increase your family member’s comfort and safety. Pre-anesthetic bloodwork, especially in our senior patients, allows us to modify the drug protocols (or postpone the procedure) as another measure of safety.
We offer a wide range of surgical services including:
Soft Tissue Surgery (Including gastro-intestinal foreign body removal)
Cherry Eye Correction (gland of the 3rd eye lid)
Dental Surgery (extractions and mass removals)
Gastropexy (Stomach tacking)
Cystotomy (Bladder stone removal)
Extra-capsular Repair of Cruciate Ligament Injuries (Knee surgery)
Abdominal Surgery * Orthopedic Surgery
Should your pet require a more specialized surgery, we can also refer you to a board-certified orthopedic surgeon as close as Moncton.
Dental disease is the most frequently diagnosed health issue in pets. Up to 80% of pets have early dental disease by the age of 3!! If left untreated, dental disease can spread to other areas of the body, with the potential to cause heart, liver, lung and kidney disease. For this reason, good dental health is a critical component of your pet’s overall health and wellbeing.
We are proud to offer Laser Therapy as a revolutionary new technology for treating pets.

Regular physical examinations are key in maintaining the health and wellness of your pet. We recommend these exams every 6 to 12 months, depending on your pet’s age and lifestyle. Seeing us at least once a year allows us to get to know you and your pet better and address any concerns or questions you may have.
