Emergency Hospital Open 24 Hours a Day



Why join us

Based in Calgary, AB, McKnight Veterinary Hospital is a full-service 24-hour hospital. We are a compassionate and skilled unit of over 50 team members consisting of veterinarians, registered technicians, receptionists, animal care attendants, receptionists and assistants. Our 6,000 square-foot facility is well-equipped with ultrasound, digital radiography, full state-of-the-art IDEXX laboratory equipment, surgical suite, and dental radiography. As a large practice, we make a conscious effort to ensure that all members of our team feel supported in their roles and that they are proud of their work.

We all enjoy the fast-paced nature of working in a 24-hour hospital, coupled with the diversity of the types of cases that we see by being located in a major city. On several occasions, Calgary has been ranked as one of the most livable cities in North America and in the world. It truly has everything for everyone and our team takes advantage of its arts, culinary and recreational offerings whenever we can.
