The Niverville Animal Hospital is now accepting new patients—those of the furry and four-legged predisposition, that is. Since November 3, the new hospital has been fully staffed and available to serve local pet owners.

The animal hospital, located at 301 Main Street in Niverville (previously the Manitoba Hydro office), has been completely remodelled inside and out to create a modern veterinary hospital and retail outlet.

“We wanted to provide Niverville and the surrounding communities with local experienced veterinary care for their beloved furry family members,” says general manager Eric Hamilton. “Also, one of our veterinarians is a resident of Niverville and she thought this would be the perfect community to have local veterinary care.”

Drs. Delores Faucher and Gwenda Olson are the hospital’s core veterinarians and they bring years of experience to the table.

Rounding off the team is registered veterinary technologist Sarah Carbonneau as well as Andrea Unruh, customer service representative and veterinary assistant.

Since the Niverville Animal Hospital is a sister company to the South-East Veterinary Hospital located in Steinbach, Hamilton says the Steinbach team will be there to provide backup for the Niverville team when needed.

Niverville’s primary hospital services include wellness exams, vaccinations, dental procedures, X-ray, ultrasound, surgery, in-house blood testing, and pet food and supply sales.

“Anyone driving into Winnipeg or the surrounding area to pick up veterinary-specific pet food can now conveniently pick it up in Niverville,” says Hamilton. “Two very popular brands of pet food we sell are Hills and Royal Canin.”

At this stage, pet services will be limited to those of the household variety. Large animal services are available at the South-East Veterinary Hospital—although, should the demand arise, the Niverville location may expand to include large animal products and supplies as well.

As business ramps up, Hamilton anticipates the eventual hiring of additional staff to meet demand. When more employees are needed, he says, he’ll attempt to hire from the local market.

Niverville Animal Hospital is open every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and every other Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. After-hours emergency services are not available at this location.

Pet products can currently be purchased through curbside pickup. To contact the Niverville Animal Hospital phone (204) 326-9840.
