Looking for a caring and experienced vet in Yellowknife? Situated in the southern industrial area of Yellowknife, Great Slave Animal Hospital’s veterinary clinic has been treating our northern pets since 1991. Dr. Tom Pisz, primary veterinarian, practice owner and animal welfare advocate, has dedicated himself to the needs of our northern pets since the company began. He is a passionate man, with a gruff exterior and a heart of gold. He is also responsible for the many stray animals that somehow find their way to the Great Slave Animal Hospital, some of which require care from a professional vet. Yellowknife animals he has taken in to his care have varied from horses to dogs and cats, to reptiles, birds and other exotics too many to mention.
With the growth of the city has come a growing awareness of the need for animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. We are more excited than ever to be of service during this time of change. Our goal is not only to treat our patients but to educate owners on the responsibilities of animal husbandry and bring awareness to our community.
