Why Join Us

South Shore Veterinary Hospital is the longest-standing veterinary practice on the South Shore located just on the outskirts of Bridgewater, in Wileville. We have been serving this beautiful Nova Scotia community for over 50 years. Although we have grown immensely since those humble beginnings, we never forget where we came from, along with the pets and clients who brought us to where we are today. We strive for exceptional customer service, coupled with quality and compassionate animal care. Our main focus is house pets and horses, but we also provide medical treatments for cattle, sheep and goats.

Our veterinarians are experts in a variety of veterinary services (e.g. equine dentistry, orthopedic surgery, dental work and emergency medicine). Our welcoming team is the perfect place to dive deeper into your professional expertise and learn from your peers. Outside of our rewarding work, our team takes great joy in living and being a part of our peaceful and rural community. Wileville is located in Lunenburg County, on the South Shore of the province. We are surrounded by lush forests, farms, parklands as well as several breathtaking lakes which contribute to our tranquil and invigorating environment.
