Our Story

VCA Canada is a network of veterinary hospitals committed to positively impacting pets, people, and local communities. We have compassion for the neighbourhoods we serve and every pet within them, not just those we see in our hospitals. Every VCA Canada hospital location is proud of its legacy of excellence and its stories of service deeply connected to its local communities.

In 2017, VCA Canada became part of the Mars Veterinary Health family of brands, solidifying an even stronger commitment to ensuring the strength and stability of the veterinary profession. VCA Canada is also passionate about providing an industry-leading Associate experience, so we are proud to have recently been named one of Alberta's Top Employers for 2024, which recognizes employers whose head offices are located within the province and lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.


Our Network

We have an extensive network of over 150 hospital locations across six provinces from British Columbia to Nova Scotia. Each hospital is passionate about providing the highest quality of veterinary care by pairing state-of-the-art technology, skillful patient management, and best practices with a relentless commitment to the client experience.
