Welcome to Fairview Animal Hospital in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Built in 1968 by Dr. Ross Ainslie, the team at the Fairview Animal Hospital is committed to offering excellence in animal health care, promoting responsible pet ownership and health-related educational opportunities for our clients. The Fairview Animal Hospital is one of a group of three (see also the Spryfield Animal Hospital and the Halifax Veterinary Hospital) that are owned by the Halifax Veterinary Hospital Inc.

Collectively our team offers over 215 years of experience with extensive and ongoing training in all aspects of veterinary medicine.

The Fairview Animal Hospital is an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA). Since 1985, we have regularly undergone evaluations by AAHA to ensure that we comply with the association’s high-quality standards of care. These standards cover nearly every aspect of our hospital, including surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, patient care, cleanliness, client service, emergency services, diagnostic imaging, and anesthesiology. The AAHA accreditation process is rigorous and only about 7 percent of Animal Hospitals in North America receive this highly valued accreditation.

The professional and courteous health care team at the Fairview Animal Hospital provide the best possible medical, surgical and dental care for our highly-regarded patients. While we are experts in our field dedicated to giving our best every day, we are also pet owners who understand your desire to give your pets the best care. We treat all of our patients as if they were our own pets. Please take a moment to contact us today, to learn more about how our veterinary practice can serve the needs of you and your cherished pet. We look forward to being Your Other Family Doctor.

We have been awarded the gold award in the Professional Services – Veterinary Services category in the 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.
