Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

    This place came highly recommended for our new bunny. They were very kind, gentle and my bun responded quite well to both the vet and the vet tech. We are moving to Port Moody but I won't be going elsewhere! The drive will be worth knowing our furbaby is taken care of.

    Lisa M.

    Have been a client of WBVC for over 40 years and numerous pets. Compassionate, caring, professional, and all around awesome staff. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a vet.
