Headon Forest Animal Hospital

Fear Free and Gold-Certified Cat Friendly Practice Serving Burlington and Surrounding Area

Welcome to Headon Forest Animal Hospital in Burlington, Ontario!

Headon Forest Animal Hospital first opened in 1993. Dr. Stephanie van Monsjou and Dr. Murphy took over the practice in 2005. We are a small-animal facility that provides compassionate and quality care to cats and dogs. We offer modern medical services in our hospital equipped with a digital radiology suite, a dentistry suite, and an operating room with several anesthetic machines and monitors. Our hospital also features digital radiography and digital dental radiography as part of our comprehensive veterinary diagnostic services.


Additionally, our in-house laboratory allows for fast and accurate retrieval of test results including blood chemistries, urinalysis, fecal exams, and cytology. We also offer abdominal ultrasound by one of our team members, as well as cardiac ultrasound through a travelling ultrasonography service. At the end of your visit, you can pick up your feline or canine pal’s medication at our in-house pharmacy. We also have an online store where you can order medication and other pet supplies. To keep our patient's health in top shape, we have created different Preventive Plans that cater to their needs at different stages of their lives. This program provides convenient and affordable healthcare at a low monthly cost.


Our facility features separate cat and dog sections, while the treatment area, ICU, and isolation units are shared spaces. We are fortunate enough to have four different examination rooms where your cat or dog will be seen. Our entire team is ready and waiting to work with pet parents to give their companions a healthy and happy life. We are always available to answer any questions or concerns and provide our expert advice.


Headon Forest is very proud to be a gold certified Cat Friendly Practice (CFP), the only practice in Burlington with this status. The CFP program is a program developed and monitored by the American Association of Feline Practitioners and “seeks to transform and elevate the delivery of feline veterinary care”. Our hospital is also accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), which is a testament to the caliber of services you can expect from our team.
