Welcome to North Hill Animal Hospital
North Hill Animal Hospital has been helping pets in the Bolton and surrounding area since 1986. The hospital, at that time treated all types of animals from cats, to cows and dogs to horses. In 1989 the practice shifted its attention to only dogs and cats with the occasional rabbit, mouse and gerbil. During the past 25 years we have grown considerably and have had the distinct honor to help care for thousands of pets and their families.
The doctors and staff care deeply about their patients and those families attached to them. In 1989, before the move, North Hill Animal Hospital undertook the task of becoming accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). In Ontario, all veterinary hospitals must be accredited by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO), all practices must meet a minimum set of standards to obtain a certificate of accreditation. The AAHA standards are much more than minimum and by obtaining AAHA accreditation we improved the level of practice and service we offer to our clients. Currently only approximately 5% of veterinary hospitals in Ontario are accredited by AAHA.
Our animal clinic offers a variety of services including:
Pet Laser Therapy
Pet Medication & Laboratory
