★★★★★ I’ve been bringing my dog to McTaggart veterinary clinic for about four years. I have nothing but amazing things to say about the practice. Dr. Foster is always so good w my pup, as are his other veterinarian associates. His team of admin and Vet techs are top shelf. I spoke with the Vet tech named Smokey after Christmas about a concern with my dog swallowing stuffing from a toy. I was beyond impressed with the way that she handled my concerns, she is next level amazing! Seriously, Smokey, thank you so much for that conversation and for helping educate and inform me. I was very grateful for that conversation and your kindness during a pretty stressful situation.

If you are looking for a vet clinic to take your fur baby that is clean, safe, and full of love, Mactaggart Veterinary clinic is it!

★★★★★ Dr. Foster and staff are phenomenal! So fortunate to have such caring & thorough staff taking care of my beloved Timon.
– Lindsay Beaudry – February 8, 2023

★★★★★ I love bringing Luna here. She is so scared and anxious when she comes and Dr. foster is so wonderfully soft, caring and gentle with her. He has always been so helpful and listens and answers all my questions. Thanks to the staff as well for always following up. I couldn’t ask for a better vet. I live an hour north of the city and drive all the way here – it’s worth it.

★★★★★ Was a very stressed mama when there was an issue with one of our kitties. We had never been a patient here before, and they were able to accommodate us same day. Thankfully we called Dr. Foster based on recommendations from the community as well as a family friend and could not be more appreciative. Rae the client specialist was amazing at taking our information and making me feel so comfortable, confident and like our baby would be taken care of. Once we arrived due to COVID I called upon our arrival, Rae came out and got our baby and assured me Dr. Foster would call with the information. He was so very kind, easy to understand his explanation and made me feel very comfortable trusting his care regime recommendation. I am SO happy we went to see Dr. Foster and his team. I’ve never had a better experience! Thank you SO much Dr. Foster, Rae and MacTaggart clinic team! ❤️❤️

★★★★★ Best vet in Edmonton! So gentle and kind. Even Dr. Greg is an amazing cover off vet when Dr. Travis isn’t working as well. saw him yesterday with my fur baby.
– Terah A.

★★★★★ I would like to shout a HUGE thank you to my vet Dr. Travis Foster – MacTaggart Veterinary Clinic and Michelle Foster for always being there for me, most recently today with the Lieutenant. She had to have some bone removed from her tail (and was honestly a perfect patient!) and Dr. Foster and the team were right on top of it and making me laugh as usual. Love this place! Thank you!
– Kaitlyn M.

★★★★★ Dr. Travis Foster and the staff at the Mctaggart Vet Clinic were wonderful and compassionate from the time of my cats cancer diagnosis and all the way to the day it was time to say goodbye. The staff there made a terrible time better by being supportive and caring.  Been using this vet now for a few years…I would highly recommend their services to anyone. Having moved out of that area…I still commuted to their office to have my pets seen by Dr. Foster…by far the best Vet office in Edmonton.
– Anita S.

★★★★★ Dr. Foster remembered my cat months after a one-off emergency appointment I had to make. I’ll continue to take my current pets and all future pets to him. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Foster and his team!

– Ana C.

★★★★★ It was an awesome first visit. Dr. Foster was so kind and gentle! All the staff were fantastic! Recommend 100%
– Christina G.

★★★★★ Dr. Foster has always been fantastic to my kitty and the foster kitties I bring in. He spends time with you and goes through everything and even follows up with you in a few days. In short, he truly cares about the wellbeing of your animals. His staff are always so friendly as well. I recently got a follow up call from one of the vet techs and she spent a good 20 mins on the phone with me seeing how my cat was doing and teaching/suggesting new food options that were specific to my cats needs. The best vet that I have been to by far!
– Holly A.

★★★★★ We take all 5 of our animals to Dr. Foster and his wonderful staff.

★★★★★ Very professional. Helped me prepare for a big international move. Highly recommended!
– Phillip Elm – August 2023

★★★★★ Dr. Foster is kind and gentle but confident in his approach with the assessment of my dog and administering the vaccine. In another clinic they had insisted on medicating my dog due to her apprehension with needles, however Dr. Foster was able to inject her without her needing to be medicated and without creating a negative experience. We’re just so happy with the care she received from Dr. Foster and from the staff there.
– CC – July 2023

★★★★★ My dog absolutely loves the staff and Dr’s at MacTaggart Vet Clinic. Everyone is kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend them to everyone.
– Jeri Romaniuk- May 2023

★★★★★ Took our kitten here, and it was Luna’s first visit to vet clinic and we were so nervous, but it was all so smooth. Dr. Foster is really amazing at his work, his experience definitely reflects on his ability to make everything so much at ease for the pet as well as the pet parent. Luna had her first shot and she didn’t even know it. Dr. Foster was so good to explain us in such simple way and so glad we chose to visit here. All the staff is very friendly and approachable for any queries no matter how trivial.
– Shil – May 2023

★★★★★ Great trustworthy doctors! We’ve seen both Dr. Foster and Woodard, they are both gems! Bedside manner is wonderful, they’re knowledge and you know your pet is getting the best care they can receive. I tried another place once, and only once. Needless to say this is the best clinic around!
– Kris D – March 2023

★★★★★ We love Dr Foster and the staff at MacTaggart Vet. Thanks for always taking such good care of our cat and dog!
– Carli Campeau – December 2022

★★★★★ Amazing clinic. My senior dog was cared for so well here. When Israeli was her time Dr. Foster was so compassionate and caring. I would highly recommend the clinic to anyone. Best bet we ever had in my dogs 14 years.
– Michael Winters – September 2022

★★★★★ Dr Foster has been Ty’s vet for 14 years. We first met him when he worked at a larger clinic and were only too happy to follow him when he opened up his own facility. He has a calm, compassionate and understanding manner with pets and their owners. All of his staff are a pleasure to deal with and I highly recommend this clinic to all pet owners.
– Sue North – January 2022

★★★★★ We love this vet clinic!! Dr Foster is always so kind and takes the time to answer all our questions! But Ray… omg she is hands down THE BEST!!!! She always smiles and is so informative! I’m always so happy when I call, and she answers the phone because I know I’m going to get an answer right then and there and it’s going to be correct! Keep up the good work and THANK YOU!!!!!!!! 🙂
– Denaya Enyedy – January 2021

★★★★★ First vet office I’ve been to in all of Edmonton that didn’t try to shame me into spending more money. They actually tried to save me money and my dog LOVED them…he usually HATES the vet. Not anymore apparently.
– Anji Berger – July 2020

★★★★★ Always polite, knowledgeable, courteous and loves animals. Great experience every time!
– Shauna H.

★★★★★ A neighbor highly recommended Dr. Foster, so I took my puppy there for vaccinations and a checkup. Both Dr. Foster and the front-end staff were amazing. My dog is shy and takes a moment to warm up to new scenarios. Dr. Foster was patient, gentle and calm. He turned the door handle slowly, opened the door slowly, he took his time – we never felt rushed. Dr. Foster even put his head down on the exam table for my puppy to smell him! I am extremely happy and it’s safe to say my 3 month old puppy has found his vet for life! – A. Campbell

★★★★★ I cannot stress enough how wonderful this vet clinic is. Dr. Foster and his team are wonderful, caring, helpful and so knowledgeable! Every time I’ve taken Lola in, I receive the best service and I know that she is in good hands. I would recommend this vet clinic to anyone and everyone. Keep up the great work!
– Tatum N.

★★★★★ The staff were amazing and very supportive when my cat passed away. They gave me time to process what happened and walked me through the next steps. If I ever get a pet again I will for sure bring them here. They sent me a lovely card and did ink paw prints from my cat. Very much appreciated.
– Hannah C.

★★★★★ Awesome staff.  All around good caring people.
– Kelsey B.

★★★★★ Best veterinary in the city! After 14+ years of struggling to find the right Veterinary for us we have finally found one that we are comfortable taking our fur babies to. The staff is very friendly, Dr. Foster is gentle and doesn’t force unnecessary procedures/medicine. We are so happy with them.
– Jolene E.

★★★★★ I love this clinic and all of the staff. The girls at the front desk are so helpful, friendly and professional and Dr. Foster is such a gentle and kind vet. We moved to Ardrossan and still continue to bring our dogs here for non-emergencies because of the excellent service.
– Cassandra W.

★★★★★ Fantastic clinic. Friendly staff, clean, pleasant, easy parking, excellent doctor. Made both me and my cat feel completely at ease. Highly recommend.
– Natalia L.

★★★★★ We had acquired a rescue dog with a broken claw, and they were able to see us right away. They showed me how to clip his nails, bandaged up the broken one, and gave him a good look over to make sure his health was otherwise good. So compassionate and understanding… Definitely visit this vet!
– Kate P.

★★★★★ I had a 15-year-old cat who had bladder and kidney issues for a very long time and we have been “patients” with Dr. Foster for years. He’s always been knowledgeable and very helpful, and always willing to take the time so you fully understand your options.
We recently had to put our cat down and he and his staff were so professional and kind. We even received a sympathy card from his clinic in the mail, in memory of our kitty. I would recommend this clinic to anyone.
– Jo D.

★★★★★ My dog Kiwi has been a client of Dr. Foster since he was at Riverbend. He has a great calm manner with my easily excitable clutzy dog. All the staff have been very friendly and helpful. The clinic is new, clean and conveniently located on the south side. Kiwi has seen him for a range of things including regular checkups to major surgery. She was recently seen by Dr. Foster for a medical emergency. While playing her eye dislodged. She is a pug cross, eye proptosis is something actually quite common for the breed. I got her in as fast as I could and they treated her right away. She is almost healed and due to them being able to help her immediately her prognosis is good. They really kept me (and her) calm during such a stressful time. If you are looking for a veterinary clinic on the South side, I highly recommend this clinic.
– Stephanie A.

★★★★★ I had a wonderful experience at MacTaggart Veterinary clinic. My dog was really sick one morning and not acting like herself. I called the clinic and the receptionist was very professional and treated my concern urgently and seriously. They had me in within 30 minutes to see Dr. Foster. He explained all my treatment options to me and was patient with me as I decided. He was sensitive to my needs as a concerned “parent,” and took time with me. I trust Dr. Foster entirely. Thank you, MacTaggart Veterinary Clinic. I’ll be back!
– Jane A.

★★★★★ MacTaggart Vet Clinic is a very well organized and clean clinic. Not only is it clean but the care that my animals receive at this clinic is exceptional. Dr. Travis Foster is an excellent vet. I have three dogs and he takes care of all of them and is always willing to help. I have a little toy dog that requires special attention and special care, and Dr. Foster is always available to help. I would highly recommend MacTaggart Veterinary Clinic to anyone.

YELP Reviews:

★★★★★ We switched to this vet about 8 months ago for our 2 Chow Chows for a variety of reasons. Dr. Foster has been exceptional. He is dedicated to the health of our dogs and they respond well to his quiet disposition. What I also appreciate is he does not nickel and dime you through the visit. Really a great place and happy our neighbours recommended him!
– Rachel M.

★★★★★ FANTASTIC vet clinic. All the staff are great and Dr. Foster is fantastic, has such a way with animals. We were taking our cat Tifa to him when he worked at another vet clinic and had a different vet after he left. The vet we had was fine but as soon as we heard Dr. Foster had opened this clinic we switched immediately to follow him. Cannot recommend highly enough.
– Dave T.

★★★★★ This clinic by far has the best customer service. The receptionist is incredibly humorous and great at her job. The nurse is educated and doesn’t miss a beat (also very funny!). And then there is Dr foster, this guy genuinely loves his career. You can see that helping animals is his passion, it’s as if he speaks their language! Your opinion of vet clinics will change the moment you step foot inside this one!
– Danielle L.

★★★★★ I love Dr. Foster – I wish I could find a people doctor like him! I have taken my dog to him numerous times for various things (regular visits, pulled tendons, vaccinations etc) and he is always so kind and gentle. My dog hates the vet but loves Dr. Foster and staff. I would trust them implicitly with the health of my dog. The best thing about him and his clinic: they CALL you to CHECK UP ON YOUR PET! They legitimately care! Every time I call the clinic they are beyond sympathetic, helpful & kind and very flexible with last minute appointments. I cannot speak enough for how amazing this clinic is and would recommend them hands down. Good job!
– Katie B. –

★★★★★ My dog has some stomach issues. When they flared up right before Christmas, Dr. Foster got me in on Christmas Eve so that I wouldn’t have to worry about making the decision of going to an emergency vet on Christmas Day if she didn’t improve. He and his staff are knowledgeable, kind people who truly love their job. The service I’ve received has always been impeccable. Highly recommend.

Outside of medical care, the staff have been helpful with regards to discussing an appropriate diet and grooming tips. I appreciate the wholistic care! Thank you, MacTaggart Veterinary Clinic. I’ll be back!
