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.
Cindy Sontag has been employed by McLeod Veterinary Hospital since graduation from the Veterinary Technician program at Red River College in 2002. In recent years, Cindy returned to Red River College to complete the Management Development program. As Hospital Manager, Cindy not only performs regular technician duties, but also ensures that our facility runs as smoothly as possible. Cindy is the current Past-President of the Manitoba Veterinary Technologists Association and sits on the national RVT association (RVTTC) board of directors.
Cindy shares her home with a Persian cat named Oscar. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, camping, and cheering on the Winnipeg Jets!
Changes to our rewards points program
For the past several years we have offered a “thank you” for your patronage by providing a rewards points program, FiveStars (previously Vicinity). This company has recently increased their fees by over 200%. We have made the difficult decision to end this program, as it has become cost prohibitive with the sudden increase in fees.
We understand that we have an obligation to you, our clients, and will honor the points that you have accumulated. We do not wish to end this program abruptly and as such the last day to collect points is Tuesday, June 18, 2019. All points accumulated prior to this date will continue to be honored.

Outdoor ideas for you and your pets.
With the sun beaming down and the grass turning green, it’s time to take the fun outdoors once again! Winter can seem like it never ends for our furry companions and they’re just as excited as we are for warm summer months. Here are some fun outdoor activities to share with your dog that will keep you both active and allow you to reap the benefits of the beautiful weather
- Hiking – Go for a hike on one of the many trails Manitoba has to offer. Hiking is a great way for your dog to explore new scenery, allowing them to exercise body and mind. Trails such as Spirit Sands, Pinawa Trail, and Falcon Creek Trail are dog friendly and make for a great adventure.
- Biking – Winnipeg offers many paved trails within city limits that are perfect for biking. For first-timers, it is important that you first ease your dog into biking as it can take some time for them to understand your expectations of them and establish a reasonable, steady pace. Check out www.winnipegtrails.ca for a list of bike paths in our city.
- Patios – More and more restaurants in Winnipeg are welcoming dogs onto the patio during the summer months. Forth Café, Little Brown Jug, and Chaeban Ice Cream are just to name a few. If you have a special place in mind, call ahead to see if your furry friend would be a welcomed companion.
- Local Events – During the summer months, there are many dog-friendly fundraising walks. You and your dog could get some exercise, soak in the sun, and help support a local cause.
