We are starting renovations to our Large Animal Hospital Admissions area that will help us to serve our clients better. These renovations will begin on March 18, 2015.

During the renovations, our Large Animal Hospital Admissions will move to Room 1529 in the Large Animal Hospital. The Large Animal patient drop-off will remain in its current location. We will post signage to direct clients. 
If clients arrive after hours with an emergency, signage will direct them to enter the regular Large Hospital Admissions entrance. There is an emergency phone on the wall with instructions to reach on-call hospital staff.

Please note: Effective Monday, January 26, 2015, the new entrance to the Companion Animal Hospital will be open.

We are happy to let you know that renovations to the OVC Companion Animal Hospital are complete. Effective Monday, January 26, 2015, clients can enter the hospital through our new front entrance, located just west of the P64 parking lot.  

There are patient drop off spots and metered parking spots available at the front of the Companion Animal Hospital. This includes emergency cases.

If you have an appointment at the Animal Cancer Centre, you can enter through their front entrance. Patient drop off spots and metered parking continue to be available at the front of the Animal Cancer Centre.

We have appreciated your patience during our renovation and look forward to serving you and your animal companions in our renovated space.

If you arrive after hours with an emergency, there is a phone in the Companion Animal Hospital front entrance area that will connect you to hospital staff.

Metered parking continues to be available in P64, adjacent to the Companion Animal Hospital. If clients anticipate they will need assistance to bring their pet into the hospital from this parking area, they are asked to please contact the Companion Animal Hospital and staff will assist them.

If you have any questions or concerns during our renovation process, please contact us at 519.823.8830
