Welcome to Richview Animal Hospital in Etobicoke
We're delighted to welcome you to the official website for Richview Animal Hospital. Our Etobicoke pet clinic understands just how special your furry family member is to you, and that's why we always treat our patients as if they were our very own pets. You'll find that everyone on our team is committed to helping your pet achieve optimum health and wellness for life.
We accept dogs and cats only.
Under the leadership of clinic owner and Etobicoke veterinarian, Dr. Oliver Sterbinsky, Richview Animal Hospital offers a wide range of veterinary services for dogs and cats at all stages of life. These services include:
Pet Exams, Vaccinations, and Wellness - Comprehensive wellness examinations are critical for keeping your pet as healthy as possible at all times. These examinations may include any scheduled vaccinations or booster shots, lab tests, vital sign measurements, and exterior inspections to catch any problems in their earliest stages. Yearly wellness visits are the norm, but very young animals, senior pets, and pets with chronic medical conditions may require more frequent wellness checks.
Diagnostics - Our Etobicoke vet's state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and facilities enables us to identify a variety of ailments quickly and accurately. These include x-ray services, an outsourced laboratory, and ready access to a board certified cardiologist. This wealth of resources is especially critical when your pet is suffering a medical emergency that requires immediate diagnosis.
Surgery - If your pet needs surgery, don't fret -- he's in good hands at our Etobicoke animal clinic. We can perform everything from eye surgery and tumor/foreign body removal to emergency, orthopedic and internal procedures. We also encourage to schedule spay or neuter surgery, not only for population control but as a means of reducing cancer risks as well as aggression, roaming and other potentially hazardous behaviors.
- Pet Dentistry - Pets need dental care too! Regular evaluations and cleanings can prevent periodontal disease, a common disorder that can have serious consequences for your pet's health. We can also perform extractions to removed diseased or damaged teeth, and advise you on easy dental hygiene techniques you can administer to your pet between visits.
Pet Boarding - When you can't stay with your pet, boarding him at our Etobicoke animal hospital is the next best thing -- especially if he has special medical issues that require professional care and attention. We will make sure your pet enjoys his stay with us, while you rest easy knowing that if a sudden illness strikes, we're right there to take care of it.
Microchipping - Why microchip your pet? Registered microchips give lost pets the best chance of returning home. Microchipping substantially increases the likelihood of a pet returning home by offering secure, reliable, unique and permanent identification. At the Richview Animal Hospital, we offer microchipping. If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter, they will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat ID code. Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. No bigger than a grain of rice, the process is similar to a routine shot and it provides peace of mind that your beloved companion will never wander unknown.
- Nutritional & Behavioural Consultations - We provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional and behavioral needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance
