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.
During the month of September, we are spotlighting all things cat related. Cats are very good at hiding pain and illness which can make it hard to detect when something is wrong. That is why we recommend all cats, regardless of lifestyle, visit the vet at least once per year.
Welcome to Animal Medical Centre North in Grande Prairie, Alberta
Animal Medical Centre North was founded in 1997 by our senior veterinarian Dr. Norman George and his wife Nicki. Here at Animal Medical Centre North, we have several different pieces of equipment that allow us to give your pet the best care. Some of our machinery includes CO2 laser scalpel, digital radiographic equipment (including dental x-ray), in-house bloodwork machines and digital monitoring equipment.
Animal Medical Centre North is also a member of the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association, as well as the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association. We work closely with our local Petland as the main veterinary care provider for the store. We also provide services to many of the local rescue organizations.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 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. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
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. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
