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.





I visited this clinic for the first time today to take in my pet rat, hearing that the clinic/doctor was very good at rodent care and diagnosis. I was able to get a very quick appointment the same day I called (which was amazing because the clinic seemed decently busy for the time I was there). The reception was quite friendly, and Dr. Burstyn was very caring and extremely knowledgeable. He also offered a broad range of treatment options for my rat and her potential ear infection, and the whole time I felt like my rat was in great hands. I would recommend this medical clinic to any pet owner, and silly as it may seem, I’d probably trust these people more with my own health than my family doctor!
