Our History


here has been a veterinary hospital serving clients and patients in the Lawrence Park, North Toronto, and neighbouring area for over fifty years. In 1992, Dr. Larry Wilder renovated the previous hospital and renamed it “Lawrence Park Animal Hospital”. Although there had been a hospital at this location, the declining health of the previous owner had resulted in a very small client base. Dr. Wilder’s practice was essentially a new practice start-up.

In the ensuing years, the practice has steadily grown, providing veterinary services to the neighbourhood’s dogs and cats. With the growth of the hospital, the staff has grown from one part-time employee to its present complement of staff.
