Northland Animal Hospital
In a local farm house, on April 28, 1961, Dr. Jim McDonald opened Northland Animal Hospital. He and his wife, Pat, raised their family upstairs and operated the hospital downstairs. He cared for all types of small animals and was also known to look at the odd bear, fox, squirrel, and just about any wildlife. As the practice grew, plans were started to move and expand the hospital into new facilities. In 1971 a feeder clinic was opened in the Churchill Plaza. This location was used for appointments only and the farm house was continued to be used for surgeries and x-rays. Construction on the current facilities began in 1976 and completed in 1978. Dr. McDonald sold Northland Animal Hospital in 1992; however he would continue to practise medicine until December 2004.
Dr. Scott Craig joined Northland in the summer of 1996 and would eventually take over ownership two years later. Today Northland Animal Hospital continues to see a wide variety of animals, from dogs and cats, to exotic pocket pets, reptiles and amphibians, as well as birds. The hospital is also a certified Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, dealing mainly in raptor (owls, eagles, hawks and falcons) rehabilitation. Our team at Northland Animal Hospital is caring and compassionate and strive daily to provide excellent patient care and personalized service. We know that your pets are important family members and we take our commitment to your animals seriously and it is our goal to work with you to find the best treatment options for your pets.
