Guardian Veterinary Centre is a companion animal specialty and emergency center located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We have had a specialty presence in Edmonton since 2007 which has allowed us to establish a busy emergency caseload including numerous cardiology cases. Our hospital includes robust surgery, internal medicine, and critical care departments. In addition, we are excited to be adding anesthesiology in the summer of 2021. Since opening our doors, we have built a strong relationship with our large referral community, serving Northern Alberta, Northern BC, Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.
What sets us apart from other clinics is our hospital culture. Our specialists are highly collaborative, working as a strong team to provide exceptional patient care. The current specialty team includes members who have been together for at least 10 years, and continues to grow, building a strong foundation of trust and support. Our Registered Veterinary Technologists work alongside our specialists, are highly skilled, utilized to their fullest potential, and always eager to learn. We also have an energetic and experienced emergency team that works closely with our specialists. Finally, our emergency and specialty doctors are deeply respected by the referring community, which speaks volumes to the attention provided to our patients, clients and referring doctors.
Our facility is a well-equipped, state of the art, 20,000 square foot hospital including 24-hour staffing, newly updated CT, ultrasound, fluoroscopy (including dedicated fluoroscopy suite), endoscopy, arthroscopy, and a critical care ventilator. We are excited to be expanding this year to include 8000 square feet of additional facilities including installation of an MRI, a dedicated ICU, and extra exam and procedure rooms. We also have an onsite digital cytology analyzer, resulting in very quick turnaround times for clinical pathology reports.
