Cabbagetown Pet Clinic has been an important part of the Cabbagetown neighbourhood since the mid ’80s. In August of 2008, Dr. Jennifer Day took ownership of the practice.
We have since acquired an extremely knowledgeable and devoted team of doctors, which includes Amanda Low, Natalie Davis and Susan Bernhard. We also have an efficient and compassionate group of Registered Veterinary Technicians and receptionists to help make you and your pet’s visit a pleasant experience.
If you have any questions about our hospital or procedures, feel free to call or come in to talk to one of our helpful team members!
We welcome Dogs and Cats of all shapes, sizes, ages and breeds!

Rebecca joined the Cabbagetown Pet Clinic team in September 2017. Before working in the veterinary field, she went to school for hospitality management, and worked at a hotel. When working at the hotel, she realized that her favorite part of the day was when someone would bring their dog in to stay at the hotel with them. At this point, she decided a career change was in order. She went back to school, and started working in a vet clinic to get as much exposure to the veterinary world as possible. She graduated from Sheridan College’s Veterinary Technician Program in 2016, along with our other RVT Sarah, and has been an RVT Since July 2016. She has a Frenchie named Charlie, and he is the love of her life (Don’t tell her boyfriend!).
Sarah grew up in Cobourg, Ontario. She graduated from Queen’s University with a degree in Biology, and quickly realized her passion for animals and wanted to work with them on a personal level.
Sarah joined the CPC team in 2015 as a co-op student through Sheridan College. She recently graduated the Veterinary Technician Program, and since then has become a Registered Veterinary Technician.
In her spare time, Sarah likes to swim, rollerblade, play soccer, and hike with her amazing two dogs, Mischa and Roman!

One of the best things you can do for your pet is to keep him or her healthy. And one of the easiest and least expensive ways to do that is by bringing in your pet for regular exams and vaccinations.
A simple way you can help keep your pet healthy is by protecting him or her against parasites. Heartworms, fleas, ticks, and other internal and external parasites are much more than just pests; they can cause life-threatening conditions in your pet—and cause severe, potentially fatal, health problems for you and your family.
With regular exams and comprehensive diagnostic testing illness, disease and other conditions can be detected earlier.
Imagine what your mouth would feel like if you never brushed your teeth or went to the dentist. For many dogs and cats, this is a painful reality.
We offer full dental cleaning, digital dental radiographs, and extractions when needed.
