The Forest Grove Veterinary Clinic was opened by Dr. Liane Bitinsky and Dr. Wanda Burbridge in October 2000, to fill a need for veterinary services in the rapidly expanding North East corner of Saskatoon. We are a full service veterinary practice for companion animals (dogs and cats). Our small staff allows us to foster a close relationship with our clients and patients.
Since 2000, Forest Grove Veterinary Clinic has grown from the original group of 4 part-time employees to 9 dedicated staff members. Although some of the faces may have changed, our commitment to compassionate and high quality care has always remained constant. We believe in individualized care and spending the time to get to know you and your pet.
Please browse through our website and be sure to contact us if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
We are currently accepting new patients. We look forward to your visit!

COVID-19 UPDATE JUNE 4th 2020
Happy Summer Everyone!
It's hard to believe we are almost halfway through this rollercoaster year! We hope that you are all healthy and managing well with all the changes this pandemic has brought us.
As Saskatchewan moves to Phase 3 of the re-opening plans, the clinic will also be instituting some changes to our daily operating procedures.
** We are pleased to announce that as of June 8th we will once again allow one person to accompany their pet into the building for appointments! We will be trying to minimize the amount of people in the clinic at one time, and the length of time each of you spend inside. To this end, we have added a history form on the website for you to fill out and submit back prior to your pet's wellness exam. (Click on the paw print above to access the form)
The clinic doors will continue to remain locked so please call to announce your arrival. We will ask you the standard questions related to your health and risk of COVID-19 and then transfer the call to the veterinarian who will go over your pet's history form with you. When we are ready you and your pet will be ushered into the exam room. In order to ease foot traffic, we will once again be using our old entrance door. **This is the door with the picture of the odd-eyed cat on it** Please use the available hand sanitizer upon entry, and we ask for all clients to wear a mask while in the building. If you do not have a mask of your own, we can provide a procedure mask for a cost of $3.00.
As there are no chairs in the waiting room or exam rooms at this time, if you are not physically able to stand for the duration of the exam, OR if you prefer to continue to not have in person contact with the staff, communication with you can continue to happen over the telephone while your pet is in for their exam. We also ask that if you are feeling unwell, or have had exposure to someone who is feeling unwell that you call and reschedule your visit. Also we will only be allowing ONE person to accompany their pet in, no exceptions, in order to appropriately ensure everyone is able to maintain appropriate social distancing and stay as safe as possible.
After your pet's visit is complete and any product is ready to go home, you will be escorted back out to the reception area to complete the bill. At this time we are still only accepting credit card or debit payments. NO CASH PAYMENTS WILL BE ACCEPTED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. In between each client all exam tables, and high touch points including door handles and point of sales machines will be sanitized.
Food, treats, medication, toys and other products will continue to be delivered through CURBSIDE PICKUP ONLY. If you are in need of any items, please don't hesitate to call us to place an order, or visit our online store to shop for food and other products. (Click on the green cart to be redirected)
Thank you all for your continued patronage and cooperation through this ever changing world! We look forward to seeing you soon!
