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.
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, which was upgraded 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.
In addition to first-rate pet care, we provide you with a comfortable clinic, which is kid-friendly and has a calm environment. Your pet can relax in the waiting room and look forward to meeting his or her veterinarian in our animal hospital in Toronto.
