Welcome to Kamloops Veterinary Clinic in Kamloops, British Columbia
Kamloops Veterinary Clinic in Kamloops, BC is a companion animal hospital operating since 1968. It is our commitment to provide veterinary care throughout the life of your pet. Our services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventive care for young, healthy pets, early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages, and medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime.
Kamloops Veterinary Clinic is a well-established, full-service, small animal veterinary hospital providing comprehensive medical, surgical and dental care since 1968.
We provide a broad spectrum of diagnostic procedures through in-house testing and the use of external laboratories. The facility includes a well-stocked pharmacy, in-hospital surgery suite, therapeutic laser, therapeutic stem cell procedures, in-house x-ray capabilities, endoscopy, and ultrasound.
At Kamloops Veterinary Clinic we strive to offer not only sound advice, but also optimal veterinary care, thus allowing you the enjoyment of your companion for a maximum number of years. Our job is not only to treat your pet when he or she isn’t feeling well, but also to help you learn how to keep your best friend happy and healthy.
Kennel cough is a highly contagious upper respiratory infection, that can be caused by a variety of different viruses and bacteria. The kennel cough vaccine available is able to protect against one of the most common sources of kennel cough, but just like with our human influenza vaccine, it cannot cover every strain.
Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol that has become more popular in human baking and foods due to its low glycemic index (low-sugar). While we as humans can handle xylitol well, it can be very toxic to our dogs (it is still unknown at this time as to its effect on cats).
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
4. OPERATING HOURS
Monday to Saturday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
With recent operation changes, we have decided to close for lunch daily between 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm. This closure ensures our staff gets a much-needed break and a chance to reorganize orders and catch up.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
