Kamloops Veterinary Clinic belongs to the Kamloops Veterinarians On-Call Group. This is a group of six independent veterinary hospitals which share the responsibility of after-hours veterinary care for Kamloops and the surrounding area. We rotate on call so when you call our line after hours, you will then be forwarded to an answering service who will then page the veterinary clinic that is on call and you will receive a callback. If treatment is necessary, your pet will be treated at the clinic that is on call that day.
The Kamloops Veterinary Clinic is located at 1465 Cariboo Place, Kamloops, BC.
Are you a 24-hour vet hospital?
We are not a 24-hour Veterinary Hospital, however, there is always a clinic within our call group that is available after hours should an emergency arise. To be put in contact with the on-call veterinary clinic, please call 250-374-1485 and the answering service will put you in touch with the clinic taking emergencies for that evening.
Where is the closest emergency service animal hospital?
Your pet will be able to be seen by one of the veterinarians in the Kamloops Veterinarians On-Call Group in case of emergency, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
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.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective July 14, 2020 one member of the pet's family will be allowed inside our clinic as long as a mask is worn while inside and physical distancing guidelines are followed. 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, 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. When the doctor is ready for your appointment, a staff member will come out and let you know.
We are happy to say that as of July 14th, we are now able to allow ONE member of your household to accompany your pet inside for their examination, as long as you bring a mask of your own to wear while inside the clinic.
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 ARE BACK TO NORMAL
Monday to Saturday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
We are no longer closed over the lunch hour.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
