HEARTWORM SEASON IS AROUND THE CORNER.
( June 1st through Nov 30th )
This is the time to have your best friends (Dogs) tested for and protected from Heartworm Disease.
HEARWORM DISEASE is a serious and potentially fatal disease in dogs.
Heart worm (Dirofilaria immitis) is a blood-born parasite which is spread among the dogs through the mosquito bite and is found in the heart and adjacent large blood vessels of infected dogs.
The Female worm is 6 to 14 inches long and 1/8 inch wide. The male is about the half the size of female.
One dog may have as many as 300 worms.
Most dogs infected with heart worm do not show any signs of disease for as long as two years. Unfortunately, by the time clinical signs are seen, the disease is well advanced.
SIGNS-Most obvious signs are a soft, dry cough, shortness of breath, weakness, nervousness, listlessness and loss of stamina. All of those signs are most noticeable following exercise, when some dogs may even faint.
DIAGNOSIS of heartworm disease can be made by blood test in the veterinary hospital or veterinary laboratory.
TREATMENT of heartworm disease is costly and risky, most dogs are hospitalized for treatment.
PREVENTION is strongly recommended for all dogs at risk and is the best approach to protect your dogs form heartworm.
Blood test for heartworm is must before starting the preventive treatment.
At Rexdale Animal hospital we do the blood test and have different preventive medications for heartworm. Please call us to make an appointment.
Our puppy had a great first appointment today. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.
My dog has been attending the clinic since she was 1 years old. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and the prices are very reasonable. Would recommend!
My father and I have been bringing our dog here for years to get groomed and check ups. I came here a few days ago in a panic because my dog had consumed a small portion of rat poison. The staff were extremely helpful and supportive during this time of crisis. The doctor saw us within 10 minutes after having no appointment. Super grateful for the amazing staff that helped us. They treated him right away and as a result the next day we came for a blood test and he was normal. Thank you again Rexdale Animal Hospital!
Could not be more thankful for the amazing staff at this location, amazing, compassionate people! My 18yr old Jack Russell Daisy had a few visits (new to area) and on her last day my experience at this veterinary made our family's hard time as comfortable as possible.My family received a condolence card today in the mail signed by there hole staff with a personal message very thoughtful!!!! Thank you again Rexdale Veterinary hospital.
Caring and gentle people, cost isn't bad, but they also have info out on pet insurance as well incase and different options. Took my dog there and now my cat. GREAT WORK!
Good Day! I'd like to thank Dr. B and his team for making sure my fur babies are in good health. I've been going to Rexdale animal hospital for 13 years. My experience has always been good. The staff are very friendly and loving. Melissa and Aj, you guys rock! Thank you for taking the extra time when i have questions. Dr. B, thank you for taking care of cookie when she's not feeling well. She likes her blue turtle neck (band-aid) you wrapped around her neck this morning. - Stef Zaghi
Been with them for 13 years 2 dogs excellent work keeping them healthy. With love ~Lacie~
I'm so thrilled to have had Dr. B and his great team care for my fur babes. The costs of services is reasonable and the experience is always a great one. My senior kitty dislocated his hip which resulted in having the head of his Femur having to be removed, but he is doing so well now. My pets have always been handled with care and professionalism. Thank you for everything Dr. B and staff! You guys are great!
I've been taking my dog here for 5 years. The staff here have been very kind and professional during all my visits. Dr Bhullar is very knowledgeable and caring. He thoroughly explains all health related issues surrounding my dog and provides me with possible options along with ways i can maintain and improve the health of my dog I've had a very positive experience and highly recommend this hospital
I've been taking my dog there for almost ten years now. The staff is fantastic and does a great job of taking care of his needs.
Excellent Vet. The first vet that was not afraid to look at my cat and would take blood work without putting him under. Dr.B is Great. Got a diagnoses right away and my Cat was on med and feeling better in a week. He also does not take you to the cleaners with his prices. I have also used the grooming services also and they did a fantastic job. My Cat has never been happier. Would defiantly recommend them.
Fantastic staff and faculty. Everyone is very helpful and informative. The vet is awesome. Highly recommend.
I've been taking my dog here for five years, and Dr. B along with his very capable staff have always treated us like family at the clinic. The going rates for procedures are very reasonable, and the doctors never recommend anything unless they believe it can truly help your pet. Dr. B is an amazing doctor. When he did my German Shepard's neutering, it healed in less than a week! Highly recommend taking your pets here, the staff are friendly and truly care about the animals under their care.
I brought my dog the other day because he was clearly not well and I must say the entire experience was great! From the initial phone call to paying for the service my dog and I were treated with the utmost respect (more than I can say for other animal hospitals). Particularly the reception Aj who took my call and set up my appointment was very pleasant to deal with and made me feel like we were in good hands. Easy 5/5.
I notice that a lot of complainers are taking aim at Dr. B because his English isn't 100% perfect all the time (he sometimes refers to female animals with male pronouns), but scholarly English isn't a prerequisite for amazing, affordable healthcare. I have been taking my three kitties to see Dr. B for years. In that time, we have always been met with honesty, dignity, care, and compassion. Plus, his prices have always been fair. He won't recommend anything that won't help his patients. For everything he knew would help, his staff has always called and requested my consent. Some of the procedures we've had done over the years in no special order: - General check-ups. (Heart, eyes, ears, abdomen, follow-up...) - Microchipping. - Shots. (Routine vaccination, allergy shots, antibiotic shots...) - Surgery. (Spaying, draining abscesses, biopsies, removing cancerous masses...) - X-rays and lab work. - Teeth-cleanings and extractions. My girls will continue to see him and support the good work of Rexdale Animal Hospital for years to come. Thank you.
I have been taking my dog to Rexdale Animal Hospital for several years. I find Dr. Bhullar and his staff to be very caring and professional. Last year he removed 2 growths on my dog. One was malignant and he took the time to explain and answer questions about the type of cancer, what to expect and how to proceed. I highly recommend Rexdale Animal Hospital based on the care and compassion shown to my dog.
I have been taking my dog here for just over 6 years. They take very good care of her...and me. Very caring staff and Dr.B treats her nicely. They always take us in whenever I call. She has renal disease and they are treating her for it. I recommend this hospital.
Our dog required immediate care and attention which Dr. Bhullar and his staff was able to provide. Thank you.
the "mean" receptionist you are all referring to does not work there any longer. That being said, i never once had an issue with her myself. She was passionate about the animals and took her job seriously. I have been coming here for over 8yrs with my dog and they have been nothing but friendly, hospitable, professional and more than happy to help me with my dog. Both doctors are amazing and always go over and beyond to ensure my dog's well being. They even call me from home after hours to check up on my problematic boxer. I have NEVER had a problem with this place once in 8yrs and counting. The vet assistant's AND receptionists are very pleasant and accommodating, i not only respect the work they do, i think they all work really well as a team. These people are a family, and everyone is treated like that. I am happy to call them friends and i guess family too!
I have had several cats and now our dog going to the clinic and they have always been compassionate and professional.
I don't understand the poor reviews. Brought my dog in for a check up, was treated well and charged fairly. Brought my dog in for dental surgery, again all staff were very compassionate and professional and was charged fairly. Only vet that doesn't demand a costly x-ray for a tooth that obviously needed to be removed. Also took out 2 other broken teeth, after consulting with me, at no additional charge. Vet's are legally responsible to report any poor treatment or neglect of animals.
They are very good, the receptionists and vet listens and helps answers any of your concerns. I use to go to the vet's at Kipling and rexdale and they are terrible charges for things they haven't done to the pet.
I had a good experience, there is dogs and cats everywhere, they are happy to greet you at the door, the staff was knowledgeable, the clinic very clean and does not smell, which is remarkable considering the quantity of animals they have. Price was average but it was worth it. Dr. was nice and waiting time was not too bad. Very happy I foind this place.
I volunteer with a dog rescue and we take all our dogs here. They are caring and very good with animals. They are always ready to help. If they say they need to report you then you are most defiantly doing something to harm you pet!
