Covid-19 Protocols

Alliston Veterinary Services is pleased to announce that our office will be allowing clients into the office with their pets as of March 3rd.

We ask that upon arrival, please remain in your vehicle or outside of our office and call 705-434-2500 to check in. We are trying to limit clients waiting in the waiting room. To facilitate this, once checked in and an exam room is available, a client service representative will be in touch to bring you and your pet into our office and will escort you to the exam room. We also ask that all clients who are coming into the office fill out our covid-screening before their appointment.

While you are in the office with your pet for their appointment, we kindly ask that you wear your mask at all times and not bring any food or drinks in with you. We also ask that only one family member comes in with their pet at this time and if bringing multiple pets that we only have one in the exam room at a given time. This is to limit crowding in the exam room and to facilitate a stress-free appointment for your pet.

For clients who enjoy the curbside service, we will still have that available. Please advise at the time of booking the appointment what you would prefer.

For euthanasias, our dedicated compassion room will be open to having two family members present for the euthanasia. More family members are welcome to come but we ask that we limit the amount of people to two in the room at any given time.

We want to thank everyone for their continued patience and understanding. Please remember to be kind to our staff as we navigate re-opening in a manner that keeps everyone safe and healthy.

Surgical Care and Services

Alliston Veterinary Services provides surgical services for dogs, cats, rabbits, rodents, and more. Your pet’s safety and comfort are our top priority, so you can be sure that your pet will receive only the best and safest anesthetic and surgical care.

Our procedures include the following:

  • Pre-surgical Consultation and Examination — We perform an exam and answer any questions you may have prior to your pet’s surgery
  • IV Catheter Placement — An I.V catheter is placed in one of the peripheral veins to assist in the administration of medications and fluids if necessary
  • Isoflurane Anesthesia — Isoflurane gas is a safe, short acting anesthetic gas that has been used in human medicine. It is used to keep your pet unconscious during surgical procedures
  • Experienced Monitoring Support — Our trained veterinary technicians use state-of-the-art anesthetic monitors to continuously monitor your pet’s pulse rate, oxygen levels and temperature
  • Pain Medication — Administered prior to and after surgery to ensure your pet’s comfort.

Recommended Services:

  • Pre-Anesthetic Blood Work (required for any surgical patients 7 years of age and older) — Ensures your pet is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure and that its internal organs can safely process the anesthesia.
  • We offer pre-anesthetic ECG to assess for cardiac abnormalities – these are submitted to a cardiologist from IDEXX for review and are mandatory for pets 7 years and older.
  • IV Fluids (required for any surgical patients 7 years of age and older for procedures requiring general anesthesia) – Fluids are given during surgery and after surgery to maintain blood pressure and help your pet recover quickly from the anesthesia. All surgeries that are under general anesthesia receive IV fluid administration.
  • 24 Hr Pet Watch Microchip — This tiny microchip provides a permanent, positive identification which cannot be lost, altered or intentionally removed – a safe, simple and inexpensive way to protect your pet against loss or theft.
