Dr. Omar Khan

Veterinarian
I graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College in 2000. Soon after I started working at North Town as an emergency veterinarian and continued in this capacity until 2010. While here I developed my diagnostic ultrasound imaging skills and a passion for veterinary dentistry. In 2010 I moved to Trinidad and Tobago to manage the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of The West Indies where I also taught clinical dentistry and diagnostic ultrasound until 2017. I rejoined the North Town Team in 2017 and also currently work at the Ontario Veterinary College teaching final year students clinical practice and dentistry, improving their clinical skills, confidence and resilience. North Town Veterinary Hospital has been my veterinary home since 2000 and I am extremely proud to be a part of this great institution. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children (both two- and four-legged), and preparing for the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP) specialty.

North Town Veterinary Hospital is committed to doing everything possible to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

As part of this commitment, effective immediately, North Town Veterinary Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocol to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

For the safety of yourself, our staff, and the community we are limiting the amount of clients permitted inside of our building. We have initiated a semi- open door policy to allow one person inside the hospital while your pet is here for a scheduled exam. One person is also permitted inside the hospital for surgical drop offs. Our emergency services remain closed door to clients as our building does not allow for proper social distancing while waiting for the veterinarian. Please call 905-451-2000 when you arrive for your appointment, surgical drop off or emergency service to gain further direction from one of our team members. You can also place an order for pet food through our Online Store by visiting our website.
