Outstanding Medical, Surgical and Dental Care for your Furry Family Member!
Our goal at Courtenay Animal Hospital is to keep your dog or cat healthy and happy for as long as possible. The most tangible we can help your pets stay healthy is to provide wellness exams, immunizations, heartworm and flea/tick prevention, laboratory testing, dental treatment, nutritional counseling, surgical care and training guidance.
Health problems will inevitably arise despite best our efforts to prevent illness and injury. I believe that every condition should be viewed in the context of the whole pet and the whole family.
The decision process for diagnosis and treatment is always a team effort at Courtenay Animal Hospital. We will carefully consider your pet’s age and general health but also your family’s available time, financial resources and comfort level with medical care. We will make every effort to gain an understanding of your individual needs and advise you accordingly. All of us pledge to treat you as we would treat our own families and your pets as we would treat our own pets.
Preventive care is the key to ensuring that your dog lives a full and healthy life. The cornerstone of this care is our comprehensive wellness exam.
We strongly recommend an annual wellness exam for every cat. Depending on the age and general health of your cat, we may suggest more frequent visits or additional laboratory testing.
Birds, reptiles and small mammals such as hamsters, guinea pigs and ferrets, need veterinary care, balanced nutrition, and appropriate environment management.
