Dr. Laura Davenport

Veterinarian
I was raised in the Comox Valley and cannot imagine living elsewhere. My first pet was a Basset Hound, followed by a menagerie of critters. I graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 2016 and high-tailed it back home, to once again enjoy our beautiful Island. Van Isle was a natural fit since I basically grew up here and knew it would offer many opportunities to practice excellent medicine. A fun fact about myself is that I started volunteering at the clinic when I was 16, then worked in various positions until going back to school. I enjoy my job because there is never a dull moment and I am constantly challenged. Plus, I get to see all sorts of different animals in a day. My favourite thing about the clinic is the great team environment and constant supply of treats. My life outside work is spent with my wonderful husband, our ever-amusing baby daughter and our small pack of dogs. We can usually be found by a river or playing in the dirt.

Van Isle Veterinary Hospital is super excited to be hosting our 4th annual cupcake day fundraiser! BCSPCA celebrates “Treat Week” across the Province from Feb 24th – March 1st 2020 where business, pet owners and animal lovers can bake up a storm and sell treats with the proceeds going to BC animals in need. Van Isle Veterinary Hospital will be baking more than 70 dozen cupcakes, cookies, squares and treats in the hopes of beating last year’s donations of $2600 (in just 7 hours!). Many local businesses such as Finders Keepers, Old House Notary, ABC Printing, Kal Tire, 50th Parallel, Stu Tunheim – Wealth Management, Bosleys, Westview Ford and Monica Parkin – Coast Capital Savings are showing their support early with special pre-orders to help animals in need. A special shout out to Cumberland Bakery for donating 12 doz of their delicious donut holes to help us reach our goal. Each year the team at Van Isle Veterinary Hospital is blown away by the support from within the community as well local businesses who pull together for this great cause.  Don’t miss out on Monday! Come early to get your favourite treats. Baked goods will be available from 9:00 am until 7:00 pm or when they sell out. There will be gluten-free and vegan options available, as well as special cupcakes for our four-legged friends to enjoy too.   By Candice Pacholuk
