WHAT'S New from Yonge Street Animal Hospital
Veterinary services for the City of Toronto. Clinic with innovative approach to treatment!
Our Goal is to bring a strong sense of compassion to veterinary preventive health care, recognizing that our clients and patients are part of our extended family.
In our commitment to making the clinic experience as comfortable and calm for cats as possible we offer an evening dedicated to cats only. Wednesday evenings from 5pm-7pm are reserved for our feline patients only.
We use our on-site lab to analyze samples for quick and accurate results
An annual blood test is performed on site to look for the presence of micro filaria in the blood stream. The blood test screens for the baby worms. If none are found it is generally assumed there are no adults present and deemed safe to prescribe a preventative medication.
A CBC (comprehensive blood count) and Chemistry panel are run in house before surgical procedures in order to ensure their are no underlying infections or concerns with organ function prior to surgical anesthesia. This helps us keep your pet safe during anesthesia.
A urine sample can tell us a lot about your pet. We have the ability to collect sterile samples and test them in house microscopically to diagnose illnesses such as infection and kidney disease.
Sometimes we need blood results right away in order to properly guide treatment for your pet. Our in house analyzers allow us to get results within 10 minutes for many tests to properly treat your pet.
Our highly trained staff provide assistance in various directions
We offer solutions to problems such as inappropriate chewing, excessive barking, separation anxiety, house-soiling, and aggression.
Abnormalities in urination (increase, decreased, change in colour for example) can be signs that something in the body is wrong. On site urinalysis and blood work can be key in early detection of many conditions.
