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 September 28th, 2020 we have made 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 over the phone. Due to the recent rise in COVID cases we are asking that “Pets Only” come into the clinic.
Technician appointments will still be required to wait in the car for the duration of the appointment.
When instructed by a team member we will allow you to bring your pet inside - provided you are wearing a mask. Cats may be placed inside our doorway in their carriers. Dogs may be hooked up just inside our front door on a carabiner. We will call you on your cell phone to discuss findings on your pet’s appointment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication - call 416-282-8516 to let us know you are here (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".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
