We are proud to maintain the highest standards for our hospital. The hospital is fully inspected and conforms to the hospital facility standards set by the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia.
In addition, we have an up-to-date library of veterinary references, storage space for supplies and medications, networked computers, and vaccine fridges for easy and convenient everyday use.
Our surgery suite is up-to-date and fully equipped for orthopedics, routine surgery, and many other surgical procedures.
Sterile surgical procedures are strictly adhered to in order to minimize the risk of postoperative infection. The room is cleaned and disinfected daily, or more often as necessary. Gowns, drapes, and instruments are all sterilized to the standards of the College of Veterinarians of British Columbia between surgeries and on a regular basis for items used infrequently. Our anesthetic machines are also checked daily for proper function.
All patients are constantly monitored during surgery for heart rate, respiratory rate, EKG, respiratory C02 levels, and blood oxygen levels.
Our in-house lab allows us to run a variety of tests efficiently and conveniently. Not having a long wait for test results is an advantage in a variety of ways, including:
We have several exam rooms equipped with everything we need to conduct regular exams and vaccinations on your pet.
Our large animal facilities include several indoor stalls and outdoor corrals for housing hospitalized patients. They also include a cattle chute and equine stocks to enable us to work with your animals as safely and efficiently as possible. We have ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and isolation stalls for horses as well as a padded, safe induction / surgery / recovery room.
We provide boarding facilities for all types of animals.
We have up-to-date X-ray and ultrasound equipment to aid in diagnosing your animal's medical problems.
We have a room away from the hustle and bustle of the hospital where we can talk quietly with you about your pet's needs. This room is also available for making euthanasia as quiet and peaceful as possible, should that become necessary.
