a year in review....we are so blessed to have such amazing river oaks families!
I'm so pleased to review Dr. Mac & Dr. Gold. We've been clients of the clinic for close to 30 years and have had wonderful care in all those years. There have been routine exams, surgeries, visits just to get the dogs used to going to a vet and end-of-life care. Our experiences have always been compassionate, educational and never rushed. Now we have had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Mac into the clinic family. First, we had a new rescue that is only comfortable around women and luckily Dr. Mac started that day. It worked out so well. Then our black lab was experiencing awful allergies. He was one itchy dog. After a while of seeing Dr. Mac she has got him virtually itch-free and one happy puppy-like nine-year-old dog!! Recently he had developed a large haematoma on his ear and she did such precision surgery that his ear has healed beautifully and you'd never know he'd had a problem. The office staff deserves a shout-out too for their professional care and fun-loving nature. It's a down-to-earth environment with real people who really care.
You will find no better care -- from anyone -- than from Dr. Gold. He listens and learns. He prepares for your appointment by looking back on his notes from your pet's case history. He gives you all the time you need, which means you may have to wait a bit. The wait is well worth it; it's because he's giving the superb care you will receive. Today was his day off, and he came in from his holiday to give me the great gift of seeing my dog safely home, after a take-all-the-time-you-need consultation and thorough review of all options. He could have made a lot of money today, instead, he just helped me. After three pets, cradle to grave, I could have no more respect for any practitioner. I am so grateful for his care over 34 years.

We have taken our pets to several clinics over the years. Unfortunately one of our fur babies has developed a seizure disorder, so I looked at ratings just like these to find the best place to bring him. Dr. Mac is kind, compassionate, and understanding. She is well informed and has been calling to check up on him and work with us to find an optimal dosage of medication for Steve. I would recommend this practice to anyone looking for excellent care.

Moved to Oakville 6 years ago and have had a wonderful experience with the Animal Hospital of River Oaks. The vets are knowledgeable, up-to-date and so very patient and kind with our pets. The staff are amazing with animals...not just a job, but a passion. They go above-and-beyond interacting with my dog and cat when they are boarded. Feel like family.

I have been bringing my pets to Dr. Gold since I was a kid myself. He has cared for each one of my pets with tremendous compassion and has helped me through the day to day stuff, as well as through the tougher times. The staff here are also amazing! They truly get to know the clients (human and non) and work with you to make sure that your pet is always getting the right care. Five stars (PLUS!) across the board *****

I think I just decided to walk into this hospital, ever since I moved to Oakville. Mainly because how building looks like.It's nice small, white, very classic looking building surrounded by big trees.
Staff members are very friendly, my cat is seeing Dr.Mac and she's great.
They discovered thyroid issue, and helped my cat on that with medication.

When I moved to Oakville I went to a different vet. My dog received an injection and couldn’t walk. I found the Animal Hospital of River Oaks and have been very pleased. Very knowledgeable, professional and friendly I have never left the office not fully informed on my dog’s health. They have gone through puppy hood right through the mourning process of losing a loved pet. If you truly care about your pet, I highly recommend the Animal Hospital of River Oaks.

Great vet practice. Took our big dog there her entire life and she lived to be almost 15. Now I take both of my little chihuahuas there and I am very happy.

I have been going to Dr.Gold for well over 20 years with my various boston terriers. He simply is the best vet I have ever known. I did have the need a few times to go to another vet and the results simply were not the same. His diagnosis have always been correct and he treats all his furry clients as if they were his own. His staff is so caring as well. I recommend Dr. Gold and the Animal Hospital of River Oaks to anyone who has a pet.....
I saw him take as much care with a budgie bird, as he would a dog or cat.

Not a fancy place, but Dr. Gold (and newly arrived Dr. Mac) are both tremendous vets. The price is reasonable, the quality of care is beond comparison, and the front-office staff are friendly and helpful.

Best VET experience in Canada. Vet was amazing, he answered all questions, provided all possible information and more. Beside that other staff was really helpful. Prices are as everywhere in GTA.

Everyone is so caring at the Animal Hospital of River Oaks. We've taken our furry family members here for just over 20 years. Our Labrador Retriever loves visiting Dr. Gold and all the staff.

We understand it can be difficult to keep weight off our pets during our cold Canadian winter as we'd all rather just be curled up on the couch. Take advantage of this special today to help your pet looking their best self!
Pet Tip: With the holiday season approaching many of us are tempted to give our pet a taste of all that good food on our plate. Many human foods are high in fats that can cause serious digestive issues for our pets. Instead trade the human delights for a tasty weight loss canned food - available as a pate or stew your furry family member won't be able to resist!
