Dr Robert Turmel owns and operates Richmond Animal Hospital. He graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 1997 and brings experience in general practice, emergency medicine/surgery, anesthesia and critical care.

We offer a friendly, relaxed atmosphere for you and your pet.

Care Commitment

It is our care commitment to treat your pet as a valued family member and provide quality veterinary care with compassion throughout their life. Your pet’s health, comfort and well being are our priority.

Our healthcare team is staffed exclusively with animal lovers who are committed to providing personal attention and individualized service to the unique concerns of each pet and their owner. We are here to assist you in making careful and informed decisions that are best for you and your pet.


The College Of Veterinarians of Ontario (CVO), the licensing body for veterinarians and veterinary hospitals in Ontario, serves to protect you and your animals. Richmond Animal Hospital has been accredited by the CVO to ensure we have an environment and the essential equipment required for patient care. It ensures our facility meets specific standards including equipment requirements, proper patient record-keeping, safe drug storage, medical reference library and orderly and sanitary premises. Richmond Animal Hospital is committed to veterinary health care by meeting the accreditation requirements and supports the periodic inspection program established by the CVO.
