Message to Our Clients

The staff at WAVES are working very hard to see your pets in a timely manner. During these difficult times, we have seen a tremendous increase in cases and as a result you may experience longer than normal wait times. We are doing everything we can to provide the best care possible for all patients. 

We understand that things can be very stressful and that Veterinary bills can be quite expensive, however, WAVES will not tolerate abusive, derogatory, bullying behaviour towards any of our staff members. This includes yelling, swearing, threats of violence, as well as demeaning and abusive behaviour. You will be asked to leave and your pet will not be seen.
