Why join us

Tantallon Veterinary Hospital opened its doors in 2006 and is a busy 5-doctor full service small animal veterinary hospital located in Upper Tantallon, just outside of Halifax, NS. We are a fully equipped facility that has been recently renovated, including a new surgery suite, an ultrasound machine, and a cat boarding facility. With an incredibly supportive and competent team of passionate individuals, Tantallon Vet Hospital is a great environment for anyone looking for a career where learning and development opportunities are endless!

Aside from receiving fulfillment in our professional lives, we feel immense satisfaction in playing a vital role in the lives of cherished animals and people in our community. Despite being a bustling center for commerce, culture and recreation, Halifax has maintained its strong community spirit and small-town atmosphere. Our people are welcoming, friendly and are always willing to lend a helping hand or strike up a conversation. Breathtaking natural landscapes surround us, and the city is home to world-class attractions such as Peggy’s Cove and the Halifax Waterfront. Altogether, we are fortunate to enjoy a pleasant and tranquil way of life.
