Dalton Road and Keswick Veterinary Clinics are proud to serve Keswick and Jackson Point, Ontario as well as other surrounding areas. We are dedicated to providing the highest level of veterinary medicine along with friendly, compassionate service.
We believe in treating every patient as if they were our own pet, and giving them the same loving attention and care. We are a group of highly trained, experienced animal lovers who are devoted to giving our patients the best care possible.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pets’ health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Dalton Road and Keswick Veterinary Clinics, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us today to learn more and schedule your pet’s’ dental cleaning.

Cassandra Hodgson – Receptionist/Vet Assistant
My name is Cassandra, but you can call me Cassie. I am a graduate from Wilfrid Laurier University and a new addition to the Keswick and Dalton Road Veterinary Team. I own two Jack Russell Terriers, Molly a 6 year old female, and 2 and a half year old male Marty. When I am not working with Dr. McNeil and his associates, you can find me on the soccer pitch, playing with my two fur babies in the yard, or spending time with friends. My interest in working with and for animals began at an early age while spending my time on my family and riding instructors farms. This interest has grown into a passion to promote animal wellness, and I am excited for this new opportunity with Dalton Road and Keswick Veterinary Clinics.
