About Us

Dr. Hendrik DeZeeuw took ownership of Sunrise Animal Hospital in May of 1987. A few short years later on July 10th 1990 Dr. Sanjay Ralhan joined the practice and became a partner in 1995.

A second location was opened on March 17th, 1997 to accommodate our east end furry friends. The Torbay Road Animal Hospital is located at 286 Torbay Road in the Coaker’s Meadow Plaza, in St. John’s.

Sunrise Animal Hospital got its name from its first location on Sunrise Avenue, in Mt. Pearl, we began to outgrow this hospital and sought out new land at 222 Park Avenue. The new and improved Sunrise Animal Hospital opened its doors on New Years Eve, 2007!

In 2013, the growth continued with the addition of Dr. Patricia Ryan, Dr. Ghulam Dogar, and Dr. Erin Wilson to the partnership. What started out as a clinic with one vet, and four support staff now has two locations, nine veterinarians, four registered veterinarian technicians, and sixty-one support staff!


Sunrise Animal Hospital strives to provide both clients and their beloved pets with a wide range of veterinary services in a warm, comforting, and compassionate environment.

We offer cutting edge medicine, and technology in a modern facility, while professional staff provide superior products and veterinary care to your pet.

Our vision is to ensure your pets receive the same quality of care that we would expect for our own.
