Yesterday was a very rough day for our family as we had to say goodbye to our girl Luma. Thank you so much to the staff for staying late so we could tell Luma one last time how much we love her! Thank you for the love and compassion you showed Luma and our family. We truly can't thank you enough, you're all so wonderful!
Thanks for looking after us!
Great Veterinarians that work there. The staff are very friendly and courteously. They explained everything that was happening to my dog, and the procedure that needed to be done very well. They answered all my questions and concerns throughout the whole ordeal. Highly recommend Healthy Paws Forward to anyone I know!! Thank you again for your services!!
And the winner is.....Cleo 🐶 thank you Evanston Pet Hospital 😊

“If you think Gus is good looking, wait until you meet his brother, Jaq.” - Gus’s mom.
We’ll believe it when we see it because Gus is one fine-looking ferret! 😅 Happy #ferretfriday.

Part of our job is not to ask, "Who's a good boy?" but, "How's the good boy?!". 😅 Chico is doing very well after his third puppy vaccine!

Jasper is dog-tired after a long couple days of vomiting & belly pain. X-rays found her troubles were thanks to a rock stuck in her small intestine! Our team got her into surgery ASAP & a visit from her mom, Monika Cieplak Choi, after surgery definitely comforted Jasper. We’re all wishing you a speedy recovery, Jasper!

A few weeks ago, we posted about Nana - the sweet, senior adoption dog. We're thrilled to report that blood tests revealed Nana to be in good health, allowing her to undergo anesthesia for her teeth cleaning. Just look at those before and afters! #petdentalmonth

It's cold out. Shop all of your pet-related needs from the comfort of your own home.

Having only three legs, amputation was not an option for Diego after he broke a hind leg wrestling with his sister a little too hard. After an x-ray and exam, we bandaged his leg and referred Diego for surgery. We're happy to report that he is doing well after his surgery. 😊 #caturdays #tripod

Disinfect and protect your pet from harmful viruses. Virkon disinfectant can be used on surfaces to outsmart the germs in your home. Individual packs are now available for purchase at our hospital!

Along with being a white Goldendoodle, Oliver is so handsome and sweet! Oliver received the works - a nail trim, vaccines, dewormer, preventive care exam, and because it's Oral Health Month, some chews to keep his teeth as white as his coat. 😁

The face of a dog who just rocked her annual exam! Fifa is a five-year-old Shih Tzu who has been keeping her pearly whites healthy with oral hygiene chews and healthymouth as recommended by our veterinarian. Learn about the benefits of Healthymouth for your pet! #petdentalmonth

It's #nationalveterinarytechnicianweek, and we would like to recognize our hard-working tech, Mel, who has made an impact on so many animal's lives. A big shout out to our thoughtful client, Kaleigh, who dropped off these beautiful flowers and card! 💐

To the furry, four-legged friends that fill our hearts with joy, #HappyThanksgiving! 🐾🐾

Angus has had an unfortunate year – three cat bite abscesses, with the most recent resulting in a swollen eye & head wound. A fluorescein test confirmed he had no scratch on his eye & a negative IDEXX SNAP test confirmed he didn’t catch a virus from his sparring partner. Our team performed surgery to repair his abscess & prescribed medications to treat the infection, pain, & swelling. We're happy to report that Angus is "feline" much better after his care.

Catios are a great way to provide cats with a safe and enjoyable outdoor retreat. Check out Suncoast Enclosures & Beautiful World Living Environments.

With the #Thanksgiving long weekend approaching, we're thankful for the moment that a Shih Tzu named Sasha, and a ferret named Rocoto, became friends. 😊 Please note that we will be closed Monday, Oct. 12th.

There is something so satisfying about seeing teeth before and after a good cleaning! October is Oral Health Month - to see more before and after pictures and learn about our Oral Health Month Promotion, click here! #octoberdentalmonth

Meet Doxie, a beautiful 11-week-old silver mitt kit. She had been quarantined from her new older brothers, BuckBeak & Phoenix, until she was deemed healthy & ear mite free. Soon after her visit with us, her mama sent us this pic of the trio after they met. 🥰 #ferretfriday

Senior pets are often passed over for younger animals when it comes to adoption. Nana's parents took a chance on her and have found what a sweet, cuddly gal she is! #adoptalessadoptablepetweek

A wholesome tale about a boy and his pet is just what the vet ordered on this #Caturday afternoon. Nala, the cat, has been diagnosed with stage four kidney disease. Unfortunately, there is no cure, but there are ways to slow the progression through supportive care. Nala's boy has been taking good care of her by helping his mom with Nala's fluids and medication to manage her pain. He wants to be a vet when he is older; to help cultivate his interest in vet medicine, we gave him a personal tour of the hospital. It makes us proud to see young people caring about animal health and wellness! #animalpainawarenessmonth

In collaboration with our friends at the Cochrane & Area Humane Society, we're proud to introduce the Healthy Paws Vlog! A video series discussing the most current animal-related topics. In support of #animalpainawarenessmonth, Episode #1 dives into the many faces of pain in pets. Could your pet be living in pain? Watch our video to learn more!

Lucky Penny's most recent visit was for her vaccines - where she was on high alert for treats! As a young pup, this brindle Cane Corso was a little thin. Once placed on Hill’s Pet Nutrition Healthy Advantage Puppy Large Breed food, she has been filling out nicely. We're very proud of the progress she has made at now 18-weeks-old.

The smell of pumpkin spice dog treats is in the air! Here are a few of our fav pups who are ready for the #firstdayoffall. 🍂

While Ella enjoys her walks in the park, she also enjoys the irresistible "treats" that rabbits leave on the trail. She has a history of eating rabbit poop, so when she began vomiting, her mom brought Ella to us for an examination. Ella was prescribed dewormer to protect her from parasites that may have been ingested via the rabbit droppings. She was feeling well enough to let us capture this adorable photo. 😍

With safety precautions in place, we allow clients in our hospital for all of your veterinary needs. Prefer to stay home? We also offer online shopping with delivery right to your door. Shop thousands of pet products here:

Originally named Rex, Mukota began his life in Australia! Now at the mature age of 16, Mukota is experiencing kidney disease and arthritis.

⚠️ URGENT: Tomorrow is the last day to have your voice heard by answering the Responsible Pet Ownership survey.
We urge you to also contact your City Councillor directly.

The City of Calgary – Your Local Government is contemplating breed-specific legislation (BSL) that would severely impact the quality of life of all “pit bull-like” dogs and their owners. We do not support BSL or the labelling of ANY dog breed as inherently aggressive, vicious, or dangerous. Enjoy these smiles from some of our favorite pit bull patients! #BSLfreeYYC Joe Magliocca

While visiting to have their vaccines updated, Tangyuan and Doubao's astute mom mentioned that Tangyuan had been scratching at his ears. An ear swab confirmed that he had ear mites, which are very contagious to other animals. We cleaned Tangyuan's ears to help with comfort and prescribed a topical medication for both cats to rid the ear mites and protect Doubao from infection. Fun fact, ear mites look like coffee grounds to the naked eye. Watch the video to see what they look like under a microscope! #caturday #dontwatchwhileeating

Helping animals is our passion, and knowing our clients are happy makes it that much more rewarding. 😊
