Dr. Stan Gira is a licensed veterinarian serving SW Calgary and Bridlewood areas, working with both dogs and cats. Dr. Gira has more than 15 years of experience treating animals. We know that your pet is a valued member of your family. The health and safety of your pet is our number one priority, and we work hard to make sure that they get the top notch care they deserve.

We are a full service animal hospital, providing routine care such as pet exams and vaccinations, as well as urgent and emergency procedures. We provide surgical and dental care to our pet patients as well. Please note that in order to comply with Alberta regulations, we do not offer feline declawing surgeries.

We're proud to offer the Southwest Calgary area's first Vaccines for Life program. This convenient program allows you to pay a one-time enrollment fee that covers your pets’ vaccines for the rest of their lives, allowing you to get vaccinations on schedule while saving money.
