About Us

Truro Vet has been caring for pets in the Colchester County region since 1960. In 1990 Dr. Gwen Mowbray-Cashen purchased the hospital from her parents. In 2001 we moved to our current location at 165 Arthur St, Truro. Veterinary medicine has seen significant changes in the last 50 years and we work hard to always provide you with the most current knowledge and techniques.

We are a full service hospital providing you with preventive health care, elective and emergency surgery, in-house diagnostics, digital radiography (including dental) and canine training classes. Our passionate team specializes in client education concerning such topics as vaccination, parasite prevention, nutrition, dental care and wellness screening.

At Truro Vet we are firmly committed to giving back to our local, national and global communities. Our veterinarians and staff volunteer with various stray cat groups to provide health care to stray and feral cats with a trap, neuter and release program. Each month we accept donations from clients for their complimentary nail trims for different animal related charities. Find out more about how we give back.

We use a team-based approach to caring for you and your pet. We recognize and utilize the strengths of each individual member of our Care Team to provide comfort and care during your visit. We know that your pets are members of your family, and we work together to help you feel like members of our family too.
