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.
At Full Circle, we anticipate that all our canine and feline patients have a conventional veterinary practitioner as well as use our unique services. When your pet is seriously ill, hospitalization is sometimes required to provide intravenous fluids and medications or specific intensive care.
Your pet’s conventional veterinarian provides these essential services. If you do not have a conventional veterinarian, we can refer you to a number of practices and veterinarians who support clients using our services.
What Integrative Care is available for hospitalized patients?
Many hospitalized patients need both western and herbal medicines to make the best recoveries. You and your pet’s conventional veterinarian can consult with Full Circle Veterinary doctors to augment hospital treatments with herbs, supplements and nutrition. Full Circle may also be the next stop after a hospital visit either for integrative medical care or for post-surgical rehabilitation services.
What surgery services do you offer for dogs and cats?
We work collaboratively with several surgical teams in HRM to refer clients who require surgical services and do not have a conventional veterinary doctor.
Does Full Circle consult on surgical procedures?
Full Circle veterinarians are often asked to consult on specific surgical procedures and aftercare.
Our rehabilitation veterinary team can review and recommend orthopaedic surgeries. Our holistic medicine practitioners often discuss less conventional routine surgeries such as ovary-sparing spays (OSS).
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we can continue providing our full range of services, under certain restrictions. As our province enters the next phase of the reopening plan, we have some updates to share with you about our safety measures.
We are continuing to see all cases by appointment only including Canine Rehabilitation Services, Animal Chiropractic, TCVM Consultations, Bloodwork for Referral Services, Wellness Exams, Vaccines and more!
Beginning June 29, 2020, clients are able to come into the hospital with their pets with the following restrictions:
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.
Face coverings must be worn to enter the hospital.
Use hand washing station upon entry.
Washrooms will be closed to the public until further notice.
If you wish to remain in your car during the appointment, when you call to inform us of your arrival, 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".
