Emergency clinic open 24 hours a day


Dr. Omar Khan

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.
