Dr. Miguel Moncayo was born in Colombia. His father wanted to become a veterinarian but did not have the opportunity to pursue that career path. From him, Dr. Moncayo learned a love for animals, science, and community service. In 1989, he followed his heart to Manitoba. He obtained a Bachelor of Science from Brandon University in 1992 and a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon in 1997. After graduation he moved with his wife Gwen to Strathmore. Dr. Moncayo’s goal is to have his patients leave the clinic happier and healthier than when they came in. It is also a personal goal of his to have his clients leave with their questions answered and their concerns addressed. In his spare time, Dr. Moncayo enjoys spending time with his wife of 26 years, Gwen, their three sons Dion, Tomas, and Mateo, as well as their lab cross Bear and their three cats Beyonce, Catniss, and Spencer. Dr. Moncayo’s mantra is “treat every patient as your own pet and every client as your only client.”

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
