Additional Services



Our in-house pharmacy is well stocked and contains supplies that allow us to immunize and treat your pet(s).  When we make a diagnosis, we are able to begin treatment immediately, either by treating in clinic or dispensing medication to be administered at home.

All prescriptions are automatically entered into your pet’s medical records on the computer. This is especially helpful for future follow-up visits.

In-House Laboratory Services


At the clinic, we are equipped to perform certain diagnostic and screening tests on urine, blood and stool samples. For more advanced testing, we use the services of the Atlantic Veterinary College Diagnostic Lab in Charlottetown.

Referral Services


Laboratory Referral Services

We routinely use the services of the Atlantic Veterinary College Diagnostic Lab in Charlottetown.  We can obtain results for blood, urine, and stool tests.  The test results are evaluated by a specialist who is available to discuss the case with, if necessary.  This is particularly helpful in complicated medical cases when a second opinion is valuable.

Radiology Referral Services

For x-ray and ultrasound images we use Southland Veterinary Services to read and analyze your pets images. The images are reviewed by Dr. LeeAnn Pack, a board certified radiologist, and are discussed with your Abegweit veterinarian. This service is especially helpful for complicated medical conditions when a second opinion is valuable. 

Veterinary Specialist Referrals

For those procedures or conditions that require the services of a specialist, we will arrange a referral visit. In most cases this is an immediate referral, however, there are occasions when we have to wait for a visiting specialist to come to the island (for chronic problems only).




Microchip Pet Identification


Microchipping involves placing a small microchip device under the skin of your pet.  This is a safe and reliable method of identification for your pet.  The chip is introduced under the skin with a needle, much like receiving a vaccination injection.  The information in the chip is retrievable by passing a scanner (humane societies and most vet clinics have the scanners) over the area where the chip is located (standardized to be the area between the shoulder blades).  The information is registered on an international data base to facilitate easy identification of your pet.
