Each year the OHS takes hundreds of calls about dogs left in vehicles on hot summer days. When the thermometer soars, a parked car can quickly become a furnace, endangering an animal’s life, and making the owner liable to criminal charges. When is it too hot? 
When a heat advisory is issued, it applies to animals as well. Even on a relatively mild day, temperatures in parked cars can become dangerous in a matter of minutes. Opening or lowering the windows does little or nothing to slow this process. With only hot air to breathe, a dog’s normal cooling process – panting – doesn’t work. A dog can withstand internal body temperatures of 40°C for only a few minutes before brain damage or death can occur. The older or more vulnerable the animal, the more susceptible they are to heatstroke or something worse.

Yes! Pets, like people, need regular dental care.

Studies have shown that greater than 85% of dogs and cats over 3 years of age have some form of dental and/or gum disease. Imagine not brushing your teeth or having them cleaned for 3 years!

Thank you for your support!



Our initiative to raise donations for the Northern Dogs Project has come to a close and we are pleased to announce that it was a GREAT success.  Collectively we raised over 1600 vaccines, which will be used in remote Canadian communities this 2012!

What you like can make a big difference to a dog.

In many remote Canadian communities, there is no vet. No help for the dog who
is hit by a car or has a close encounter with a porcupine, and no one to turn to if
the cat is sick. No vet means that many animals in these communities suffer from
cuts and coughs, wounds and sores, sickness and preventable diseases – all
that can kill.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) is helping. Their Northern
Dogs Project provides veterinary care, education, and ongoing support to remote
Canadian communities that otherwise wouldn’t have it.

Kanata Animal Hospital is supporting IFAW’s work, and you can too. Visit us on
Facebook or Twitter and "like” or "follow us”. For each "like” or "follow” that Kanata Animal Hospital gets between October 1st - December 31st, we will donate one vaccine to IFAW’s Northern Dogs Project.

We like to help animals. We hope you do too.
