Our History

For over 35 years, Caledonia has been home to a family-owned veterinary clinic. In 1975, Drs. Bert and Gudrun Schaefer opened the Caledonia Veterinary Clinic, which initially provided services for small animals and herd health. In 1995, Drs. Vinny and Isabel Hetram took over the clinic and began focusing solely on small animal medicine. On March 27th, 2006, the clinic moved to a newly renovated facility at 230 Argyle Street South.

At Caledonia Veterinary Clinic, we’re committed to providing warm, small-town service that goes beyond just veterinary medicine. Our dedicated staff, who all have pets of their own, work together like family to help animals in any way they can. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you and your furry friends!

Caledonia Hospital Today

At our clinic, we offer a wide range of services for small animals, including routine exams and vaccines, parasite control, dentistry, and digital dental radiographs. Our digital radiology unit allows us to take and process radiographs quickly, and we can even send digital copies home with you. We also offer specialty surgeries, as well as ultrasound and endoscopy services from a traveling specialist.

As a small business, we’re committed to supporting our community. We sponsor soccer and hockey teams, support the Caledonia Rotary Club, and participate in local events like the Canada Day petting zoo and Caledonia Fair pet show. We’ve also been sponsoring the Crash Test Doggies Flyball Team since 2001 and have supported other organizations like the OVMA Pet Trust, Farley Foundation, Caledonia Food Bank, and Grand River Gymmies Gymnastic Club.
