Dr. Arzem

Dr Gary

Raised in Toronto, Dr. Gary Arzem has been practicing veterinary medicine for more than 25 years. His special interests and training include internal medicine, ultrasound, ophthalmology, cardiology, surgery, emergency medicine and preventative medicine. For years, his dream was to run a full-service animal hospital for pets, meeting all their veterinary healthcare needs and providing exceptional client service.

Dr. Arzem has realized that dream at North Yonge Veterinary Hospital. He strives to meet every patient’s unique needs and works hard to explain to clients every aspect of their pet’s care. He is passionate about preventative medicine as well as progressive treatment and surgery. He enjoys his relationships with his clients and loves informing them on the various details of pet health care that ensure every pet enjoys a healthy and happy life.

When he is not taking care of his patients, Dr. Arzem enjoys spending time with his family outdoors. His interests include travel, baseball and golf. He admits the music is a passion he couldn’t live without. A veterinarian who has dedicated his life to taking care of animals, he is especially proud when clients refer friends and family to his practice due to the excellent and thorough care their pets receive and the superior service his staff offers at North Yonge Veterinary Hospital.
