Our Extensive Veterinary Services

When you bring your pet in for their initial visit, we’ll begin by asking you various questions. Have you noticed a change in their appetite recently? Does your pet have any chronic health conditions like diabetes? Have there been any lapses in their immunizations? From there, our veterinarian will conduct a thorough wellness exam where our team will look at their eyes, skin, fur, and teeth. Finally, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan as needed that outlines necessary treatment. We’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have, as we encourage pet parents to understand animal health.

What They’re Saying

Blue Cross Animal Hospital is by far the best vet I've ever been too. I've been going her for about 8 years for my doggie and 1 year for my cat. Love Dr. Costello! He is always so compassionate, thorough, and easy to talk to. Everyone else who works here is so kind and caring. Such a great group of people. I know my fur-babies are in good hands.

Ashley M.

Excellent service and staff fantastic Doctor could not be better everything was clear and detailed.

Steven T.

Dr. Costello and the rest of the team are very friendly and professional! They made my dog, Charlie, feel comfortable, and gave me some great tips for his anxious attachment behaviours. I truly feel like I could ask them anything without judgement, and when it came time to pay for the visit and vaccines I was pleasantly surprised at the price.

Cassidy C.

This is a group of people who actually like animals and are just super nice folks! Thank you for looking after my fur babies!

Melissa M.

These folks have been wonderful-- supportive, responsive, and compassionate. I'm so happy I chose them!

Rosie R.

Went here for the first time a few weeks back. They took great care of my new puppy! They do a great job explaining the care and aren't overly pushy. Plus, they're incredibly responsive to quick questions in between visits. Looking forward to many years of taking care of my pup with them.
