The Ibizan Hound (pronounced ee-BEE-than) originated from the Spanish island of Ibiza and was bred to hunt rabbits. Looking like an Egyptian statue, this breed dates back to 800 B.C. Often referred to as “Beezers,” the Ibizan Hound is a great family dog that is loyal and affectionate and good with children and other dogs. Elegant and athletic, Beezers are great when entered into agility because they are fast and can jump really high. It is strongly recommended to have a high fenced in yard because of this. Ibizan Hounds have an extremely strong prey drive and will chase anything that moves fast. They may not be suitable in a home with other small pets. Ibizan Hounds require a good amount of exercise, and if you live in a cold or wet climate, it is best to get them a coat as they can get cold easily. Beezers know how to relax and love to get pampered. They are quiet in the house and enjoy a soft, comfy bed. If you are looking for a unique and fun dog that loves to be silly and is family-orientated; then the Ibizan Hound may be the right breed for you!

Bad breath (halitosis) in a dog or cat is usually because of poor dental health. Occasionally a dog or cat may have good teeth and still have bad breath in which case the diet is usually the cause. This is relatively rare, however, compared to the likelihood of a dental issue.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "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 416-282-6621 (appointments ONLY at this number). We will take a history of your pet from outside of your car, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet using social distancing methods. We will be taking payments over the phone, we are no longer taking cash at this time.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
