Welcome to Full Circle Veterinary Alternatives Inc. in Dartmouth, NS

Our dynamic, passionate and dedicated customer care team wants you to experience inspired, integrated veterinary health care. Our broadly educated veterinarians, technologists and support staff meld conventional veterinary medicine with diverse special interest fields including: nutrition (customized raw or cooked home prepared feeding plans), acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, animal chiropractic, canine rehabilitation, Bowtech®, feline friendly medicine and more.

The provincial veterinary licensing body, the NSVMA (Nova Scotia Veterinary Medical Association) conducts regular on-site inspections of all veterinary practices. This assures us that our hospital facilities meet all the provincial standards.

Our philosophy has always been to strive for the most comfortable environment and positive experience possible for our clients, their pets and our staff. To this end, we have always covered our exam table with comfortable fleece, worked on the floor with any larger dogs, and sometimes in the sink for cats who feel safer snuggled there! We provide no-slip foam play mats for dogs with difficulties standing on slippery floor surfaces. We keep plants in our reception area and in outdoor flower boxes in the summer. A mix of neutral, abstracted landscapes, original drawings and photos of some of our favourite furry friends also enhance our décor.

Our clients, while focused in the Halifax, Dartmouth and Bedford area come from as far away as Los Angeles. They all have a deep commitment to the well-being of their non-human family members and an interest in moving beyond the limits of conventional medicine. Take the first step and join us.
