K9 to 5 Paws and Play is owned and operated by a Veterinarian Technician (University of Guelph) and as such, certified in pet first aid and CPR. We will take excellent care of your dog and have advanced skills in case of illness or injury. We quickly assess the situation to determine what plan of action to take. Our concern is always what is best for your dog/s. Depending on the situation, we will either rush your dog to the closest vet or, in non-emergency situations, we will make the effort to take them to their own vet. We have not had any serious situations other than the typical cut, scrape or bite that can happen when dogs play together, and these we treat in-house.
