Pet Care in Windsor, Ontario

Brack Animal Hospital is a full service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care for pets for over 60 years. Dr. Bill Brack established the hospital in 1954 out of his small white house where the parking lot is now located. In 1991 Drs. Jackson and Howarth commissioned the construction of the present hospital. It was designed and equipped to serve the needs of present and future veterinary medicine and surgery. In 2006, the hospital and practice were sold to Dr. Darlene House who remains the current proprietor and managing veterinarian. We invite you to tour our office here online or by visiting us in person at 2621 Howard Avenue in Windsor, ON.

Brack Animal Hospital is accredited by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario and is 1 of 3 hospitals in Essex County that is also accredited by the prestigious American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).

At Brack Animal Hospital, we focus on a team approach to health care and close the clinic 1-2 times monthly for team meetings and education for all of our staff. Our doctors and team members attend continuing education courses regularly to ensure that we are educated on the most current information for the care of your animal companions.
