Welcome to Vetwise Animal Hospital

Dr. Gillott  was born and raised in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. He received a full scholarship to attend the University of Prince Edward Island where he completed his Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1995. He was then accepted to the Atlantic Veterinary College and received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the AVC in 1999. He began his career in a very busy five doctor veterinary hospital in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia. After four years of practice, Dr. Gillott and his wife Tracy acquired a practice of their own in 2003 in Delta, BC, another beautiful suburb of Vancouver. After 14 enjoyable and rewarding years in Delta BC, Dr. Gillott’s family grew and the desire to return home to the Maritimes to be closer to family and friends became stronger. Dr. Gillott purchased Vetwise Animal Hospital in October, 2016. Dr. Gillott looks forward to building long-term relationships with his staff and with new and existing clients and patients at Vetwise Animal Hospital. He believes in strong communication with an emphasis on client education and complete medical care.

Our purpose at Vetwise Animal Hospital is to provide the highest quality veterinary care to our patients and exceptional service to our clients. We know that the cats and dogs brought to our hospital are members of your family.

Our hospital is accredited by the Nova Scotia Veterinary Medical Association. It is with pride and commitment that we strive for excellence in veterinary care to provide professional medical care for companion animals in our community.

An Individual Approach

Every pet is different. And their medical needs should be treated as such. That’s why your veterinarians from Vetwise Animal Hospital will never take a blanket approach to your pet’s wellness. We use an individualistic approach when planning your pet’s healthcare approach, which includes disease management, nutrition and much more. We work with you to make sure your dog or cat is as healthy as possible. With a commitment to fostering great client/pet and veterinarian relationships, Vetwise Animal Hospital will help make keeping your animal healthy as easy and stress-free as possible. For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Vetwise Animal Hospital.

Exams and Preventative Healthcare

Just like with humans, it’s important to be proactive about your pet’s health. That’s why Vetwise Animal Hospital encourages our clients to bring their pets in for yearly checkups. As a partner in your pet’s health, we provide our veterinary services for every stage of life. Preventing problems is always better than treating them and because pets age much faster than humans, regular physical exams play a vital role in keeping your animal healthy.
