Why Join Us?
Cobequid Animal Hospital is an established and award-winning practice caring for cherished animals in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia and the surrounding region. We are humbled to have won FIRST PLACE in the 2019 Star Metro Readers Choice Award for Best Veterinary Practice!

We could not have reached this achievement without the dedication of our growing team of 7 veterinarians, 10 RVTs, 3 veterinary assistants, 9 client care specialists and 2 managers. We strive to provide a high quality of service with high-quality tools. Our “soft tools” of knowledge and experience are deep and broad, and we are constantly engaged in continuing education. Our “hard tools” are a modern, well-equipped facility serving the pets in our community.

Formal awards are a welcome bonus – but for our team, ensuring our patients receive the best quality medical care and that our clients have all the resources they need to be the best owners they can be – will always be our top accomplishments. We are dedicated to our close-knit suburban community, just 27 km away from the city of Halifax. Lower Sackville provides many opportunities to unwind, set down roots, and take on new adventures with its low cost of living, peaceful surroundings (including Sackville Lakes Provincial Park) and easy access to schools, shopping, and restaurants.
