Notice: We have recently extended our Monday to Thursday hours until 9:00 pm!
to McLeod Veterinary Hospital. McLeod Veterinary Hospital was established in 1982, in Winnipeg Manitoba, by Dr. Bob Newfield. Since that time, our facility has been continually evolving to provide you with the most up to date equipment and techniques. As our patients cannot speak for themselves, client/doctor communication is essential. The purpose of this website is to enable our clients to familiarize themselves with our services and policies. Our mission at McLeod Veterinary Hospital is to provide the best possible health care in a professional and compassionate manner.
I have been going to Mcleod for 12 years and every time I go it feels like I am greeted and treated like family. I believe Dr. Newfield to be the best vet in the city and I trust him and his staff with all my heart.
I was extremely worried about my dog and they got me in within an hour of my call no problems. They clearly care deeply about the animals.
I love McLeod Veterinary Hospital. I recommend them to everyone looking for a vet. They genuinely care about your beloved pet, and want to provide them with the best care possible.

Have you ever wondered what you would do if your pet ever became lost? There are steps that you can take to increase the chance that your pet is returned to you.
- Contact your local pet shelters, animal services agency, and the humane society. Provide them with a detailed description of your pet, the area they were last seen, and any distinguishing markings they may have. This will give you the opportunity to provide current contact information in the event that it differs from the information on your pet’s identification tags.
- Visit the websites Winnipeg Lost Dog Alert, Winnipeg Lost Cat Alert, and Facebook. These are excellent tools to help find your lost friend. Getting your pet’s photo and information out in the community will keep the public on the lookout.
- Make large, colorful, eye-catching signs and put them up in areas surrounding where your pet was last seen. Adding a photo to the signs will allow people to identify color patterns or markings specific to your pet. Ask local veterinary hospitals and shelters if you can post your sign in their office.
If your pet normally wears a collar, be sure their identification tags are always on it. Rabies tags, microchip tags, and license tags are great ways to help your pet find their way home.
Tattoos are usually one of the first things people will search for on a lost animal. Tattoos are usually given at the time of spay or neuter and are located on the inner hairless surface of the ear. They do however tend to fade and become more difficult to read over time.
Microchips are rice-sized transponders implanted under the skin between the shoulder blades and are easily scanned using a special microchip scanner. Microchips provide a permanent form of identification, and are a great back-up in the event that your pet’s collar and tags fall off. As with all identification, your address and contact information must always be kept current to provide the best chance for a safe return.
Never give up hope. There have been animals lost for months that have been reunited with their pets.
Have you ever struggled with the cost of veterinary care for your pet?
Health coverage for pets is important at any age and can become increasingly important as your pet ages. Unfortunately, it is a common misconception that insurance companies do not offer coverage for aging pets. Following a thorough health examination, your pet may be eligible for a complimentary trial, which offers coverage excluding pre-existing conditions. You then have the freedom to decide on affordable coverage for your pets and the ability to choose options within your budget.
Imagine having the financial freedom to pursue the diagnostics and treatment necessary if your pet ever became sick or injured.
