About Us

Dr. Amanda Lewandowski & Dr. Michael Grimshaw have also joined us as regular part time associates.

Cumberland Veterinary Hospital is a full service veterinary hospital. We offer in-clinic laboratory diagnostics, x-rays, dentistry, laser surgery, therapeutic laser, endoscopy, the safest anaesthetics currently available, effective and safe pain control, modern anaesthetic monitoring devices and a complete and modern surgical facility. We also offer evening hours, bilingual services, licensed veterinary technicians and consultation between doctors regarding difficult medical and surgical cases.

Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up.  This will include a full physical exam, and may include teeth and gum cleaning if needed.  One of our fully qualified veterinarians will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and answer any questions you may have. Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic.  It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts.  If you have something like this, share it with our team.  If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.  Our veterinarians can still work with whatever information you have.
