Welcome to Torbay Road Animal Hospital in St. John's, Newfoundland

The Torbay Road Animal Hospital opened on March 17th, 1997 to accommodate our east end clients and furry friends. It was opened by Dr. Hendrik DeZeeuw and Dr. Sanjay Ralhan, as a sister clinic to Sunrise Animal Hospital. The Torbay Road Animal Hospital is located at 286 Torbay Road in the Coaker’s Meadow Plaza, in St. John’s.

In 2013, the growth continued with the addition of Dr. Patricia Ryan, Dr. Ghulam Dogar, and Dr. Erin Wilson to the partnership. What started out as a clinic with one veterinarian and four support staff, now has two locations, six veterinarians, four registered veterinarian technicians, and forty-nine support staff!

Mission

Torbay Road Animal Hospital strives to provide both clients and their beloved pets with a wide range of veterinary services in a warm, comforting, and compassionate environment.

We offer cutting-edge medicine, and technology in a modern facility, while professional staff provide superior products and veterinary care to your pet.

Our vision is to ensure your pets receive the same quality of care that we would expect for our own.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Friday, March 19, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 709.753.0506. We will take a history of your pet from outside your car, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. Once the examination is finished, the Doctor will either call you or come out to talk to you to discuss the treatment etc for your pet. For those who do not have a mobile phone, an easy knock at the door will work the same way!

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. We are closed Saturday & Sunday.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.

- Your dedicated team at Torbay Road Animal Hospital
