We also have access to distributors to allow us to bring in special orders to meet your animal’s needs. We are soon rolling out an online platform, which will allow you easy ordering and access to thousands of products, which can be shipped to the VTH at no charge or shipped directly to your home. In the meantime, if you need pet food and supplies, you are always welcome to visit our hospital to see our selection of veterinary diets and pet products. We are open for purchases 7 days a week.

Introducing the new Online AVC myVETstore

The Veterinary Teaching Hospital is excited to announce our online pet store (mvVETstore), where every purchase supports training the next generation of veterinarians. This online store offers current and new AVCVTH clients the convenience of shopping for your pet’s products at whatever time suits you, with 24/7 service and a huge selection of food, treats, toys, and supplies for cats, dogs, pocket pets, and exotics. Please contact that if there is a product you are not seeing and would like to have available

With current COVID restrictions, it can be inconvenient and time consuming for you to come into the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Ordering through the myVETstore website is faster and safer for you. If your pet needs a prescription diet, these are strictly controlled by your AVC veterinarian through our myVETstore.

Ordered products can be shipped directly to your home, cottage, or office, or picked up at the VTH. We will send you an email letting you know when your order has shipped or is available for pickup.
