Welcome to Full Circle Veterinary Alternatives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Full Circle is the longest-standing integrative, holistic veterinary medicine service in the Halifax Regional Municipality. Our broadly educated veterinarians, veterinary technologists and customer care support staff help you and your conventionally-trained veterinarian to meld veterinary medicine with diverse special interest fields including Traditional Chinese veterinary medicine, animal chiropractic, canine rehabilitation (therapeutic exercises, canine fitness, massage, and water treadmill work) and more.

Our philosophy has always been to strive for a comfortable environment and positive experience for our clients, their pets and our staff. Our staff have additional training in anxiety-reducing techniques for pets in veterinary settings.

For your pet’s physical comfort, our flooring is a durable, non-slip rubber material used for gymnasiums. It enables dogs with limited mobility to have as much traction in the clinic as possible. We cover our exam table with comfortable soft blankets or fleece and work on the floor with many larger dogs. Cats who feel safer snuggled in semi-enclosed spaces can often sit in the bottom of their carriers.
