Who Are We?

In 1982, Dr. Christine Kato founded the Kato Animal Hospital in Toronto, ON, and since that time, she has helped hundreds of pets (and their owners) stay in good shape.

Many of our staff have stayed with us for over a decade, and as a result, we've been able to build long-term relationships with many of our clients.

We encourage our staff to polish their skills through continuing education and frequent meetings. And if we can't perform a specific service for you or your pet, we'll refer you to our laboratory partner, Antech, for a consultation.

Why Choose Us?

At Kato Animal Hospital in Toronto, ON, we understand the importance of keeping up with the times. To accommodate changes in technology, we expanded our building in the 1990s and purchased new digital X-ray equipment in 2007. We later upgraded this equipment in 2012. In 2015, we upgraded to digital dental x-rays, and we look forward to using new software that will make it easier to provide you with internet referrals.
