About the Hospital
Woodgrove Animal Hospital is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Dr. Jeff Goldman and Dr.
Jayne Buchan. The hospital was opened in August of 1991 to provide health care for all species of pet
animals. Since opening we have treated a variety of species from goldfish, pythons, and hedgehogs to
pot-bellied pigs, parrots and sugar gliders. We truly enjoy the challenge of working with all exotic
pets, but dogs and cats are still the majority of our patients and keeping them happy and healthy is main
reason we became veterinarians. Wild animals that are brought in will receive free treatment and then be
released back into the wild or transferred to a licensed rehabilitation center.
Operating Hours and Locations
Our hospital is located in the Hammond Bay Center at the corner of the Island Highway and Hammond
Bay Road. We are very proud of our extremely well equipped 2750 square foot facility and are more than
happy to arrange group or private tours (by appointment and time permitting).
