Why join us

Elgin Animal Hospital has been caring for cherished animals in St. Thomas, ON since it was founded in 1964. Located in Southern Ontario just north of Lake Erie, St. Thomas is a vibrant city that offers countless activities and attractions for both tourists and residents to enjoy. The city has managed to maintain its charm while providing countless amenities – entertainment, arts, shopping, hiking, food, parks, cultural activities, recreational facilities and more. St. Thomas is also located in close proximity to five US-Canada border crossings including two that are less than 200km away, making it the perfect home base for travel enthusiasts.

Our practice is a 4-doctor small animal clinic focused on prevention and early detection. We pride ourselves on having a great and supportive team. Elgin Animal Hospital offers different types of surgeries, even some that are not offered at any other hospital in town. We specialize in cruciate surgery, laser therapy and animal chiropractic care.
