We can see dogs, cats, birds, exotics (including rabbits, guinea pigs, and more), and wildlife.
Bowen Veterinary Services no longer provides 24/7 after-hours urgent care. With the alarming suicide rate among veterinarians, we have come to the conclusion that the best way to provide a healthy work-life balance for our island veterinarian is to eliminate this service.
We provide urgent care during our regular business hours, but all after-hours calls are now forwarded to Mountainside Animal Hospital in North Vancouver. Located on Capilano Road, they provide the closest 24-hour emergency care. After ferry hours, Cormorant Marine water taxi is available for charter and North Shore Taxi service accepts pets.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to restrict our service. This has therefore caused us to have a back-log that we are eagerly trying to get through. If your animal is due for a wellness appointment, please be patient with us as we get through our wait list.
