About Us

Welcome to Huronia Veterinary Emergency Clinic! Your local emergency veterinarian in Barrie, ON. We’re proud to provide a wide variety of critical veterinary medical services in Barrie & surrounding areas!

Huronia Veterinary Emergency Clinic was established in 2001 as a result of the cooperative efforts of a number of veterinarians in Barrie and surrounding areas to provide emergency after-hours services to their clients. Subsequently, the clinic has grown to include 19 “member” clinics – owned and operated by our shareholders. The Huronia Veterinary Emergency Clinic also provides service to clients of veterinarians in the area who are not “members”.  We feel that it is important to work as partners with your regular veterinarians to provide your pet with the best possible care.
