Who Are We?

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


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