Newly Renovated Canadian Animal Hospital to Offer Cutting-Edge Vet Car

Happier, healthier lives for pets are now being prescribed at the Blue Cross Animal Hospital in Hamilton, ON. The historic vet clinic gets a revolutionary re-do!


The Blue Cross Animal Hospital has officially finished a major renovation and expansion of their historic facility in Hamilton, ON. Co-founder Dr. Jean Rumney, who was one of Canada’s first female Veterinarians to graduate from the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph, Ontario, quickly gained a positive reputation for providing superior services and animal-care at the hospital that was originally built in 1934. The long-standing facility has since maintained their unique reputation in the community as a safe and healthy environment to bring their beloved pets for treatment.


The renovation program, which took years of precise planning and design, is meant to honor the clinic’s long history and preserve its rich legacy. The hospital has a history of more than 70 years. It provides care and support for animals and their families, so maintaining the same feel for the clients was important during decision making.


“We were able to expand and modernize the Hospital for the next generation of patients and also keep the history alive with the refreshed design,” said Dr. Kate Lutchin, who now operates The Blue Cross Animal Hospital, along with her business partner, Dr. Patty Haardeng. Integrating the hospital’s legacy into the new space was of utmost importance, as the Blue Cross Animal Hospital was Canada’s first stand-alone veterinary practice.


The completely renovated facility now conveniently includes six treatment rooms, an operating theatre, and updated diagnostic equipment – making this hospital a go-to spot when wanting nothing but the best for your pet.


Congrats go out to this amazing facility that’s made it their mission to ensure our furry family members are well taken care of.
