Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are only allowing pets to come into the clinic. Please remain in your vehicle when you arrive and call the Animal Eye Clinic number (519-654-2040) on the parking signs.
When we are ready to see your pet, one of our friendly staff members will come to your vehicle to pick them up. Please wear a face mask and have your pet ready with you outside your vehicle when they come to retrieve your pet.
During the appointment we will call you to collect more information about your pet’s eye problems. Following the comprehensive eye exam of your pet, Dr. Whelan will explain his findings and recommendations. After he has written the discharge we will bring your pet, the discharge and any medications back to you in your vehicle.
If you require medication refills, please complete the online form a week in advance before your medication is needed as we are continuing to do refills by scheduled pick up only.
We provide specialist diagnostics, medicine and surgery to help maintain and maximize your pet's eye health and vision. Our goal is to diagnose the cause of your pet’s eye problem and find the best possible solution for your pet and you.Our Services

The Animal Eye Clinic of Waterloo Region has moved locations. We are now located at 20 Queen Street, Morriston, ON N0B 2C0 (just south of the junction of Hwy 401 and Hwy 6 South).
Look for the sign for 20 / 22 Queen Street outside the Picard’s Peanuts building. Use their driveway to drive around to the back of their building. There are numbered car parks for you to park in.
When you arrive, please call the phone number on the sign (519-654-2040) and let us know your car park number.
We are currently receiving large numbers of new referrals from all over Ontario.
We are at our maximum daily capacity for one doctor and current staffing.
To maintain a safe level of patient care, we have to set a daily limit on how many patients can be scheduled or worked in.
NEW patients (And patients we have not examined in the past 2 years):
Our schedule is currently booked 4-5 months out for NEW patients. This is too long for many of the medical cases being referred.
Until we can catch up with the current backlog of referral patients, we are currently not accepting any new medical or surgical referral cases. We will revisit this in mid-March.
We will update the Clinic website when we are able to take on new referrals.
If your patient cannot wait, please arrange a referral to another specialist ophthalmologist in our region https://www.acvo.org/ophthalmologist-search
Patients that have been examined within the last year, will receive priority for appointments.
We will determine appointment “work-in” eligibility on a case-by-case basis.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
Dr. Whelan and Staff
