Accepting New Patients & Welcoming Existing Clients


Our Philosophy:

Baywood Animal Hospitals are dedicated to consistently providing the highest quality service and medicine. We believe your pet deserves the best veterinary care and you deserve the best client care. We strive to make every visit as enjoyable and stress free as possible. We make it our mission to educate our clients on their pet's healthcare needs and to help extend the number of years they get to share with their beloved pets.

About Us:

We are passionate and trusted veterinary professionals working and living in your community for over 40 years.  Dr. Greg McWatt is a veterinarian and owner of Baywood Animal Hospitals with locations in Midhurst (Baywood Animal Hospital) and South Barrie (Baywood South Animal Hospital). Animal Hospital of Gravenhurst has also joined the Baywood Animal Hospital family as of June 2016.

All of our veterinarians are graduates of the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph which is widely regarded as having some of the highest standards in the country. We are members of the College of Veterinarians of Ontario which is the licensing body for veterinary medicine in Ontario as well as ensuring that our practice meets or exceeds their stringent specifications on a continuing basis.

Baywood Animal Hospital, located in Midhurst, primarily serves North Barrie, Elmvale, Collingwood, Muskoka, Penetanguishene, Midland and surrounding areas. Baywood South Animal Hospital, located in South Barrie, serves Barrie, Innisfil, Stroud, Lefroy and surrounding area. Both are up-to-date facilities and able to accommodate all services at either location, so please chose the location that is most convenient for you. We are wheelchair accessible and have plenty of free parking.

CVO Accreditation:

Both of our hospitals are accredited by the College of Veterinarians of Ontario demonstrating our dedication and commitment to practice quality veterinary medicine. We have undergone rigorous inspections to ensure our equipment, pharmaceuticals and patient records meet and exceed the CVO's requirements. Rest assured that we will provide a safe and professional environment for your pet’s veterinary care.


We understand that the internet can be a huge source of information, but medicine is a particularly detail oriented discipline and many “non-official” sites exist with incorrect information that may cause you unnecessary stress and worry. A link to Veterinary Partner is provided here or on the right side of any page. Veterinary Partner offers information to both the public and professional veterinarians alike.
