Dog Behavioural Counseling

Understanding why your pet is behaving in an undesirable way can be very frustrating. Many behaviours can be considered inappropriate, such as aggression or reactivity, inappropriate urination or defecation, storm phobias, obsessive licking or chewing, and more. Consulting with one of our veterinarians about your concerns is recommended to try and identify the motivation for the behaviour and determine how we can best try to diagnose it. It is important to rule out any underlying medical causes of problem behaviour before proceeding with treatment. Behavioural cases may sometimes involve referral to a qualified trainer, or a veterinarian with a special interest in behavioural medicine.


Southpointe Pet Hospital is committed to doing our part in protecting our community from the spread of COVID-19. To allow us to continue operating during the pandemic, we have implemented a CLOSED DOOR POLICY.

For the safety of our staff, clients and our entire community, ONLY ONE CLIENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO ACCOMPANY THEIR PET INTO THE BUILDING AT A TIME, and A MASK MUST BE WORN TO ENTER.

When you arrive in our parking lot, please remain in your vehicle and call (403) 532-0085. Our staff will advise you on when you can enter for your appointment, or deliver prescriptions and food orders to your vehicle. For safety reasons, please be prepared to pay with CREDIT or DEBIT, as cash will not be accepted. If you do not have a phone or if your animal is experiencing an emergency, please knock on the door to alert our staff.

As of June 29, 2020, we are resuming normal scheduling of non-urgent appointments, including annual exams, vaccinations, spays and neuters with clients present.

Hours of Operation
Monday to Wednesday: 8:00 am – 8:00 pm
Thursday to Saturday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
Sunday: Closed

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we work through this situation together.
