Exotic Medicine & In House Laboratory
We care for a wide variety of animals. Our fully equipped, in-house laboratory gives us the ability to provide the level of service your pet deserves.
Whether you have a pet emergency or are driving by and want to see if you can get an appointment with a vet - we welcome walk-ins!
If you won’t be able to drop off your pet at the time of your scheduled appointment, you are welcome to drop them off before work and pick them up after.
At Panorama Hills Animal Hospital we are a close-knit team that remember and care about each pet and owner that come through our doors.
Vet wellness exams are an essential aspect of maintaining your pet’s health. We recommend an annual exam for pets under 7 years and an exam every 6 months for senior age pets. During wellness testing for animals under 7 years old, we recommend bringing in your pet for blood, urine and fecal testing. For senior pets, we recommend all of the above testings in addition to annual x-rays. We also take care of age-appropriate pet vaccinations.
Examinations and Consultations
At Panorama Hills Animal Hospital, our veterinarians will examine your pet thoroughly with exceptional care and attention. We look at all animals for any potential problems so that we can treat the issues before they become serious. When there’s something wrong with your pet, you may not notice right away and prolonging the necessary care could worsen the condition. A late diagnosis may take more time, testing and money. During your pet’s vet wellness exam, our team will take the time to talk to you about your pet and their habits. We will also make sure your pet is up to date on all pet vaccinations in addition to prescribing any necessary medications including preventative heartworm, flea or tick pills. At our Calgary animal hospital, we are a close-knit team that remember and care about each pet and owner that comes through our doors. We know your pets are part of your family which is why we are committed to giving every pet owner time and attention to leave you feeling confident and assured in the care your pet receives.

Vet Wellness Exams and More
In addition to vet wellness exams, we specialize in microchip implants. A microchip is a safe, easy and reliable method of making sure you are reunited with your pet if they ever go missing. A microchip is the size and shape of a grain of rice and is implanted underneath your pet’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. Contact us to schedule your pet’s vet wellness exam today.
How long your appointment takes depends on many factors. Depending on the health of your pet and the questions or concerns you have, appointment times can vary greatly in length. However, a typical wellness exam lasts no longer than 45 minutes.
When you first arrive for your appointment, please be prepared to answer a few general questions and provide medical records from your previous practice. If you have pet insurance please bring your pet’s insurance policy information, in case it is required for the appointment. The more history and medical information we have, the easier it will be to make recommendations on your pet’s specific needs.
Vaccines for pets are definitely necessary. There’s a much greater risk involved when animals are exposed to preventable diseases without the support of vaccinations. The essential or core vaccines are usually given as a combination. For dogs that one vaccination includes protection against canine distemper, canine parvovirus, canine adenovirus (infectious canine hepatitis), and parainfluenza. Rabies vaccine is given as an additional injection. In cats, the combination includes vaccines for the feline rhinotracheitis virus (feline herpes virus), feline calicivirus and feline panleukopenia with the rabies vaccine also administered separately. Recommendations for optional or non‐core vaccines are based mainly on lifestyle in cats and geographic region in dogs.
