    Testimonials

    • I love love this animal hospital. My Princess went into labour and I phoned Dr Dhunna 15 minutes before they were to close and he could have told me to go to another hospital,but he didn't!. Told me to bring her straight in. Good thing! She needed a C-section and even though he was closed he stayed an extra 3 hours and saved my Princess and all her pups. Not to mention he charged me $2,500.00 less than any other place would have. They are true to their word when they say they don't want to price pet owners out of caring for their fur babies. I'll never forget the kindness and care he gave us. Thank you Dr Dhunna and staff.

    • The vet and staff here are compassionate, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had our kitten neutered here, and also had elder care done for our senior Sphynx cat with heart failure. They do such a good job with our family. Also, they were very covid safe and respectful of my questions and concerns. I recommend them.

    • Went to 1st Avenue Animal Hospital on Feb. 29 to have my ageing dogs euthanized. From the moment we arrived, the staff were fabulous, very caring, kind, explained the entire procedure.
      My dogs were sisters, never been apart in 14 1/2 years. Dr. Dhunna was absolutely amazing. Very gentle soul who's care and understanding was extraordinary.
      This was the first time I'd been to 1st Avenue, and I'm recommending Dr. Dhunna and his staff to any one who has pets. A very positive and blessed experience.

    • The staff and Dr. We're professional, friendly and caring. My cat went yesterday for exam ect: fair cost, also received a call today from them wanting to know how she is doing. I thought that good. Would recommend this hospital to anyone who has pets. Thank you.
