Our fees are based on the recommended guidelines set by the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia. We will always present you with an up-front estimate for our services, based on the course of treatment that we feel is in the best interests of your pet. We do not offer wellness bundles or discount packages, nor do we bundle unnecessary procedures with regular health checks. As each pet is unique, we always design a custom treatment and wellness plan on a case by case basis. Whatever your budget, we are always invested in your pet’s health.





We had an amazing experience at Arbutus West!  Doctor Burstyn is so gentle with our cat Shyguy, and seems really into explaining things and making sure we have all the information we need.  I’ve never had a vet spend so much time talking things over with me!  He also trains other veterinarians to offer the same kind and knowledgeable style of medicine that he practices, and his intern is also very nice and really helpful on days he is not there.  We are so glad we stumbled on this clinic, and will recommend it to anyone who wants the best for their pets!
