Dog After-Hours Services

Van Isle Veterinary Hospital offers 24-hour on-call after-hours service and we do not refer or share our after-hours emergency calls with other veterinary hospitals. Because we have a large team of veterinarians and support staff, we can rotate our call schedule within our own facility. We always have a veterinarian and support staff available by telephone for your after-hour needs. Your pet’s medical records, blood work, x-rays and past history is accessible to all our veterinarians while on call.

Where is hospital located?

Van Isle Veterinary Hospital is located in Courtenay at 1111 Braidwood Road. We are right beside the Prime Chophouse across the street from the Ryan Road RBC and Credit Union.

Are you a 24-hour vet hospital?

Van Isle Veterinary Hospital is not a 24-hour vet hospital, however, we have a veterinarian on call 24-hours, 7 days a week including statutory holidays. The difference being that a 24-hour veterinary hospital is open to the public and staffed 24 hours a day while we are not. After hours, our vets are at home and rely on our answering service to page them when an emergency call is required. We are staffed and open 7 days a week (not including statutory holidays) with extended hours in the evenings Monday to Friday for your convenience.

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
