Bowen Veterinary Services offers wellness appointments, preventative care, full body x-rays, in-house lab services (including blood and urine), full pharmacy, and routine and urgent surgeries.

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.
