Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
Here at Halifax Veterinary Hospital, we have access to digital radiography services. This equipment ensures minimal exposure to radiation, as well as quick and clear imaging results. It can be beneficial in helping to identify your animal’s condition. Once a month, we also have access to a board certified radiologist who offers ultrasound services.
How do you use X-ray and radiology services at your hospital?
Radiography allows us to see inside your dog and gives the veterinarian valuable information in evaluating the health of your dog. X-rays are not just good for bones! They are an excellent way to assess the size and shape of internal organs and structures.
How much does a dog X-ray exam cost?
For pricing, please contact the hospital and we will be happy to provide you with a quote.
Most cats have 18 toes; five toes on each of their front feet, and four on the back. My cat, Mandy Pawtinkin, is blessed with 22 toes. She has a congenital physical anomaly called polydactyly (Greek for ‘many digits’). It is a genetic mutation that causes cats to be born with more than the usual number of toes on one or more of its paws.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective June 5, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. Starting July 6, one person is allowed inside per appointment, as long as you have a mask.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS
Beginning June 8, we will be resuming our normal business hours:
Monday - Friday: 7:30 am – 8:00 pm

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
