We Are a Full Service Animal Hospital

We offer a range of medical and surgical services for small animals and exotics, including internal medicine, radiology, dentistry, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, and nutritional and behavioural counselling.

While much of our service is about helping animals in need, we also would like to introduce our “wellness” programs for healthy pets. These programs involve pre-anesthetic and annual blood tests, vaccination, blood pressure screening, weight checks and dietary management and are designed to help your pet stay healthy for his or her lifetime!

All Veterinary Hospitals also sell a full range of high-end pet food and treats, including:

The Aldershot/Plains Road Team

Dr. Gesa Kohn-Gould (Owner)

Dr. Cherrie Rafuse graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1989. After graduating she began practicing in the GTHA and joined our team in 1996. Over the years Dr. Rafuse has felt privileged to meet all of the wonderful clients and their pets in the Aldershot area of Burlington, many of whom she has known from early development well into their senior years and always looks forward to getting to know new patients of all sizes. Dr. Rafuse has a strong interest in treating exotic pets as well. Dr. Rafuse feels passionately about fear-free pet visits, preventive health care, and overall pet wellness.

When not busy at the clinic, Dr. Rafuse is an avid flower gardener, and enjoys hiking, camping, and traveling with her husband and son. Her family has had a long line of felines, most of them into their 20's, and now the family home is kept busy by Annie, the "bad kitty" who appears to be beating the odds by surviving a congenital heart condition.


Wendy has been working in the veterinary industry for 25 years, 20 of them here at Plains Road/Aldershot Animal Hospital with Dr. Rafuse. Animals have always been a passion of Wendy’s. She has a background in the equine industry having owned a boarding facility in the Oakville area for many years. She has fostered a variety of animals for rescue groups in the area and found her best friend Molly at the SPCA in Hamilton.
