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.
