New Patients Are Always Welcome!
If you live in beautiful Gananoque or the surrounding Thousand Islands area -from west of Kingston to east of Lansdowne and Brockville- and you need a veterinarian to care for your pets, look no further. Dr. Brian Willows, Dr. Scott Stevenson and their professional staff (Tracy, Judy, Stephanie, Sonia, Karly, Karen and Donna) are here to tend to your pet's health care needs. Effective April 15, 2015 TIVS underwent a shift from all species (mixed practice) to now 100% of our focus being on your family pets. “We understand the loving bond which exists between you and your family pet and we take every possible measure to give your animal(s) the health care that they deserve to help to strengthen and lengthen that bond. We respect the trust that you place in your veterinarian, and we always strive to give our very best to you and your beloved pets”.
We also understand that the experience of coming to the vet clinic can make some pets nervous. We are striving to change that! We want all of our clients and their pets to feel as at ease as possible when they come in for an exam. We employ many different techniques to further this goal and we can give you tips and ideas of things that you can do at home to make your visit to the vet clinic as stress free as possible for you and your pets.
Thousand Islands Veterinary Services is a full service animal hospital and welcomes both “in hours” emergency treatment cases as well as pet patients in need of routine medical, surgical, and dental care. Dr. Brian Willows has over 30 years of experience offering regular pet wellness care, as well as diagnosing and treating serious medical conditions when they arise. Dr. Stevenson also shares the clinic values of providing the best possible medical care for our patients as well as making sure that their owners are fully educated and engaged in all aspects of their beloved pet’s care. Providing exceptional customer service and client education are core values that all members of the TIVS team strive for.
Dr Brian Willows, Dr. Scott Stevenson and the TIVS staff are also very excited to report the completion of an extensive clinic makeover. The goal of this makeover has been to limit fear and provide a comfortable and calm environment for both clients and pets. This renovation along with their experienced and friendly staff will provide your pet and yourself with the most positive veterinary experience possible.
