Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
During the month of September, we are spotlighting all things cat related. Cats are very good at hiding pain and illness which can make it hard to detect when something is wrong. That is why we recommend all cats, regardless of lifestyle, visit the vet at least once per year.
Welcome to Oakbank Animal Hospital in Oakbank, Manitoba
Oakbank Birds Hill Animal Hospital has been serving the pets and people in the rural municipality of Springfield and surrounding areas for over 30 years. Dr. Neil Charnock and Dr. Catharine Moir established the hospital in 1988. Our team provides companion animal medicine and surgery to dogs, cats, rabbits, pocket pets, equine and hobby farm animals.
In April 2012, we built a beautiful 4300 square foot stand-alone building on the edge of town to better serve our valued clients and their pets. This new facility provides our patients with state-of-the-art veterinary equipment such as in-house laboratory equipment, digital X-rays, ultrasound and a dental suite. The hospital offers surgical expertise by a board-certified surgeon. Dermatology consultations and allergy tests are also available by a board-certified dermatologist.
As a dedicated team comprised of veterinarians, registered veterinary technologists, veterinary assistants, veterinary receptionists, a practice manager and a kennel manager, we take great pride in serving our clients and their beloved pets!
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. We are still providing the same excellent patient care that we always have, but with some changes to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Clients are now able to enter the hospital with their pets for their appointments. We ask that clients wait in the reception area while the doctor and their assistant perform the exam in the designated exam room. After the appointment, the doctor will come out and talk to the client in the waiting area.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method. Debit will be accepted if needed.
