About Our Clinic

Amherst Veterinary Hospital has been providing veterinary services in Scarborough, Toronto and the GTA for over 50 years. We are proud to care for all of your family pets including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets and other small mammals, as well as reptiles.

Our veterinarians and staff are experienced in handling and treating a wide variety of species. We strive to treat them all as if they were our own, with attentiveness and compassion.

Our experienced pet groomer offers bathing and styling services on-site. We also offer short or long-term boarding for all types of pets from the smallest canary to the largest Great Dane. Feel free to call or e-mail us with any questions you may have about our practice or your pet’s health. We look forward to meeting you and your pets at your next visit!

“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures. They give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive.”
