We are thrilled to announce that the Veterinary Specialty Clinic for Anesthesia and Neurology (VSCAN) in Ottawa has joined the VCA Canada family, effective March 5, 2024.

The VSCAN was established in 2016 by Dr. Philip Jull, DipECVN, DipABVP (canine & feline), and later joined by Dr. Stefania Grasso, DipACVAA, formerly at the University of Montreal. Since then, the VSCAN has rapidly evolved into a cornerstone of veterinary care in the Ottawa community.

The VSCAN team of dedicated doctors and support staff grew exponentially over the years. This growth prompted a relocation to a larger facility at 2300 Carling Ave, marking a new chapter in the VSCAN's journey.

Rooted in principles of respect, compassion, integrity, collaboration, and advancement, the VSCAN epitomizes excellence in veterinary neurology, anaesthesia and imaging. The VSCAN's commitment to exceptional care in a convenient setting makes it the premier choice for neurology, neurosurgery, anesthesia, and diagnostic Imaging services in Eastern Ontario. To enhance the health and well-being of the pets in our community, the VSCAN has recently begun offering additional part-time outpatient services, including surgery and cardiology. Embracing a culture of lifelong learning, curiosity, and innovation, the VSCAN is committed to continuous advancement and leveraging the latest technology to maintain its position as a leader in the field.

We are also excited to announce that the VSCAN team will relocate to the new Alta Vista Emergency and Referral Center upon its expected opening in early 2025. This new state-of-the-art 52,000 sq ft facility will serve as a hub for Eastern Ontario as a full-service specialty/emergency centre, including an in-house cancer center.

The VSCAN team is excited to embark on this new chapter as part of the VCA Canada family, and we invite everyone to join us in welcoming the VSCAN team to VCA Canada.
