Pets are not our whole lives, but they make our lives whole.
This belief in the fundamental value animals can play in our lives has been the foundation that our practice has been built upon. Originating with a simple desire to help animals, Transcona Veterinary Hospital opened its doors in February of 1988 staffed by Dr. Murray Moffatt and technician Sharon Topnik. They established a family centered veterinary practice that has blossomed to create one of Winnipeg's most successful and trusted veterinary hospitals. The staff have grown, the facility has expanded, and has now become a landmark in the Transcona community.
Founded on the values of caring for family & achieving excellence, the staff share a wealth of knowledge, skill, energy, and compassion which has made this hospital a touchstone for families seeking care for their pets. Transcona Veterinary Hospital has become well known for performing specialized surgeries such as TPLO, fracture repairs, and GI scoping.
The hospital has always been about community. The doors are open for veterinary students & volunteers to learn the fundamentals of animal welfare & treatment. We welcome the involvement of all of our clients whether that be in the examination room or observing their pet's surgery through our observation window. We desire to form trust between our clients that will last a lifetime.
