Peter Blomfield in a sheep farm

Dr. Peter Blomfield

Veterinarian

Dr. Peter Blomfield was raised on a sheep farm near the southern end of New Zealand. He graduated from Massey University’s Veterinary program and spent two years working in a mixed practice in New Zealand before heading overseas. He spent two years working at various veterinary clinics throughout the UK and touring the UK and Europe in between his work assignments. He arrived in Calgary in 1989 and worked at Edgemont and Varsity veterinary clinics before settling in at Acadia Drive Animal Clinic in 1995.

Dr. Blomfield met his wife and business partner Susan (a Calgarian) while working in the UK and with her has raised three kids and various pets. They love to spend time travelling, snow skiing and enjoying water sports together and with their family whenever possible. He also loves to play basketball and soccer and occasionally crosses paths with clients and colleagues on the basketball court and soccer field.

Dr. Blomfield is always keen to take on new challenges and learn through continuing education. Over his career, he has developed many new skills in surgery and continues to broaden his medical knowledge. He encourages a collaborative environment amongst the clinic’s staff and regularly consults with local specialists.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us at 403-278-3168. We will bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. The veterinarian will then call you to discuss our recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a technician will return your pet to your car and take care of any needed medications and payment.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the clinic. Our staff will bring your order to your car.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

6. Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our jobs. We have taken these measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this disease.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid, and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
