Vancouver Animal Emergency & Referral Center (VCA)
For emergencies after hours, we strongly advise that you go to:
Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic
2303 Alberta St, Vancouver, BC V5Y 4A7
Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic is a group of highly trained caring professionals that are there to help you when we cannot. If your pet goes to see this team, we receive a detailed report the following day and all follow-up care is taken care of by our practice.
Sometimes pets can have health problems that require a Specialist's attention and therefore a referral will be sent for a consultation. We have access to many of the best veterinary specialists across the Lower Mainland and BC. Some of the Board Certified Specialists we regularly work with can help in areas such: Anaesthesiology, Dentistry, Endoscopy, Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Surgery, Neurology, Radiology and Behavior.
We are also lucky that we can often have the specialists come to our clinic to perform their services at our convenient location.
