Our Clinic

Temiskaming Veterinary Services was founded by Dr Connie Dancho in 1988 as a large animal practice. Our present location was established in 1998, at which time we expanded our services to include companion animal care.

Over the years, Temiskaming Veterinary Services has continued to evolve, to meet the needs of our furry friends. This included a major expansion of the clinic building in 2014. At present, our clinic employs 24 talented individuals.

Our team is committed to working harmoniously with our clients, to promote good animal health. Temiskaming Veterinary Services recognizes the importance of continuing education in providing our clients with the best veterinary care possible. We feel that all animals should be treated with compassion and care in every check-up, procedure, and surgery.
