Our Hospital

The Sydney Animal Hospital has been serving the community for over forty
years. It began operations in the old K-Mart Plaza and then in 1989, moved to
its current address. In 1993, it was purchased from the Ross Ainslie Group by
Dr. Ruth Parker, who in 1996 designed and built the current hospital facility
and in 1998, built the only pet crematorium on Cape Breton Island.

You and your furry friends are welcome in our hospital and we know you will
feel like family. We understand the importance of pets in our families and
community and we strive to provide the highest quality medicine and surgery in a
compassionate and caring atmosphere with the latest in advancements.

We were first in Cape Breton to computerize our patient files and purchase
complete in-house diagnostic equipment from IDEXX. We provided the first direct
digital radiology service in all of Atlantic Canada. Locally, we are the only
provider of cold laser physiotherapy and laser surgery. We strive to broaden our
skills as demanded by you, the pet owner.

In 2006, we were the Atlantic Regional Winner of the Veterinarian Team
Appreciation Award presented by Bayer Health Care and Pets Magazine.
