Dr. Sue McTaggart first founded the clinic, then called Deep Cove Pet Clinic, in a small in-home facility on Cromar Road. She began to build her client base and operated at this location until 1992, when she re-named the clinic Dean Park Pet Hospital and moved to a larger location on McTavish Road. As the practice grew, Dr. McTaggart welcomed Dr. Christina Klimaschka and Dr. Nicola Parkinson and began to grow the business towards her true passion: animal dentistry.
In 2011, influenced by her growing number of dental clients, Dr. McTaggart moved the clinic to its current and final location at 1700 McTavish Road. Our new facility hosts a larger reception area and multiple exam rooms, as well as separate surgery rooms for dentistry and general surgeries. We also have an in-house lab, a digital x-ray machine, and the latest in dental equipment technology.
A university school student has also joined the team, working on the weekends and full time during the summer months. Courtney is working on her general sciences through university right now. She has already become invaluable as an assistant to the staff while she is exposed to the exciting veterinary world.
