Job Description

Find everything you are looking for as a Small Animal Veterinarian in our AAHA-Accredited practice.  Lots of people say they’re compassionate but, the results are in and, our experienced team at Grey Bruce Pet Hospital truly is.  Only 6% of hospitals in Canada are accredited by AAHA, and our 4 veterinarian, Small Animal hospital is one of them. We celebrate best practices and are not shy to try new things, most recently introducing stem cell therapy and digital thermal imaging to our roster. Our vets work alongside our 7 Registered Veterinary Technicians and, together with our other support team members, we run a busy and successful hospital. We use cloud-based software (Ezy-Vet) and our nearest referral centre is conveniently located within the Ontario Veterinary College.  Our building has served us well for many years but we are currently in the planning stages for construction of a new hospital – something to look forward to!


Grey Bruce Pet Hospital in Owen Sound, Ontario is looking to grow our team and nurture the establishment of 3 exceptional full-time Veterinarians (Small Animal).

Our purpose is to empower veterinary teams to live their passion and focus on unparalleled care for pets and the people who loves them.


About Grey Bruce Pet Hospital: Grey Bruce Pet Hospital is a wholly-owned subsidiary of P3 Veterinary Partners that provides quality in-house services including general medicine, dentistry and surgery for small animals, as well as urgent and after-hours care.
