Providing Specialist Eye Care Services For Your Pet

Welcome to the Animal Eye Clinic of Waterloo Region.

COVID - 19 Policies

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.

What we do

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.

Clinic news

We have moved!

Nov 30th, 2020

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.

Dr. Whelan will be out of the office at an overseas conference from May 12th to May 28th. He will be back in the office on Monday May 29th.

During this time the office will remain open for medication refills and messages.

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.

If your patient cannot wait, please arrange a referral to another specialist ophthalmologist in our region

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Thank you.

Dr. Whelan and Staff
