Welcome to Morningstar Pet Hospital

Morningstar Pet Hospital is a full-service companion pet hospital servicing Whitby and the surrounding areas. Morningstar Mobile Veterinary Services was established in 2011 by Dr. Rafik Kodsy. In 2012 we opened the doors to our beautiful new facility located in the Thickson Mills Plaza in Whitby, ON. Dr. Kodsy provides thorough and compassionate care for your pet in the safety of our clinic or from the comfort of your home.

Our team has a strong focus in preventive medicine. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” At Morningstar Pet Hospital we embody this ideology, as we know firsthand that there is no better way to help your pet, and increase the longevity and quality of their life. We are dedicated to being your partner in your pets’ health care. We aim to help you make educated decisions about your pets’ wellbeing by acting as advocates for your furry family members throughout all life stages.

We encourage you to come in for a clinic tour so we can show you our updated facility. We have a fully equipped surgical suite to suit your pets’ needs. We are able to provide elective and emergency surgeries, dental prophylaxis, digital radiographs, behavioral consultations, in-house blood work and diagnostics, preventive care, nutritional counseling and much more. Our goal is to provide exemplary medical care in a clean and calm environment.

  • "One of our dogs has serious anxiety issues at the vet. We’ve been to about four different vets and Dr Kodzy is by far the best. Our dog’s anxiety is so bad that he’s never even received a full exam (he’s 7 years old). Dr Kodzy spent the first 20 minutes simply getting our dog comfortable. We finally managed to get a full exam AND all his vaccines without a peep from our dog. Honestly the best vet we’ve ever been to."
