Drs. Foster & Smith Serves Canada


As someone who lived in Canada for seven years—four in Manitoba and three in British Columbia—and who served for nine years on the Board of Governors for a major Canadian university—and as our Internet Marketing and Media Manager—I’m glad to announce that Many Drs. Foster and Smith Pet Supplies are now available for online ordering and ground shipping to Canada! “O Canada, our home and native land!” I love it!

Our kids have great memories of our time in Steinbach, Manitoba near Winnipeg. In fact one of our daughters was born there. Maybe it’s time for a trip back to the land of the Hudson Bay Company, the Blue Bombers and the Winnipeg Jets; or perhaps to Vancouver to see the B.C. Lions on the horizon again from downtown Vancouver. My wife and I were just through there this past summer, flying out of Vancouver after a trip down the inside passage from Alaska.

It was great to come under the Lions Gate Bridge past Stanley Park and dock at the Pan Pacific Hotel in downtown Vancouver. Lots and lots of memories.

A photo I took of the Lions Gate Bridge last year from the deck of our ship the Seven Seas Navigator as another ship followed us into port.

Though we are two distinct countries each with its own proud heritage and style, the border between us seems like a formality rather than a reality at times, such is the good relationship our countries have enjoyed over the years.

For our Canadian friends who will be new to Drs. Foster and Smith, know that we will work to keep that good relationship with you, valuing your business, and doing all we can to earn it. Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee is real. Our company is owned by two veterinarians who began this business some 29 years ago and who still run the day-to-day operations. Due to their insistence on providing only quality products and their insistence that customers be completely satisfied or their money back, Drs. Foster and Smith has become the largest catalog and online seller of pet supplies in North America. Our inventory of over 15,000 products is, we believe, the largest in the pet supply industry.

Just Look For the Maple Leaf!

Unfortunately, not all of those products can cross the border. Look for the maple leaf symbol that indicates, “This product can be shipped to Canada.”

If you have questions, please give us a call. Our friendly Customer Service staff is made up of all local people from what we call the Northwoods of Wisconsin, right here in Rhinelander. We are a small town company, with small town values but now with an international reach.

Also, if you haven’t discovered please check it out. It is our “non-commercial” site (you can’t buy anything there) and is filled with 3,000 to 4,000 articles, all either written or screened by our professional veterinary staff. These articles were written to help you care well for those fuzzy four-footed friends that are part of our families.

O Canada! We are on the way at Drs. Foster & Smith with pet supplies that we hope you will enjoy!

(We’d love to hear from you, so leave us a note from time to time here in our blog or on our Facebook page.)
