When your cat or dog isn’t feeling well, a new veterinary office will treat it with the utmost care.
The Plessis Veterinary Hospital, located at 17-1783 Plessis Rd., officially opened its doors on Aug. 8.
Royalwood resident Dr. Sanjiv Bhandari, 36, and Sage Creek resident Dr. Sav Virdi, 30, have a vision for a clinic that will maximize its availability to the community. The hospital will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Both had experience working with various local hospitals to opening their own practice, and know the issues facing pet owners. In particular, they feel Transcona was a solid fit for their new venture.
"We thought that this area was underserved for veterinary needs," explained Bhandari, who moved to Winnipeg from India in 2003 for school. "This area is booming in the next five years, and the location is good, and the area does need another vet."
The office will provide vaccines, sick pet exams, dental care, and soft-tissue surgeries. The office has its own lab on-site, so any samples taken won’t need to be sent away to be tested.
Both Bhandari and Virdi, who moved to Winnipeg from India in 2009, said their love of pets is a major reason they became veterinarians, and they plan to host a cat in the clinic once it opens.
