Our Hospital

South Burnaby Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1987. The hospital has been voted by our clients as the “Best in Burnaby” 18 times, according to the Burnaby Now Reader’s Choice survey. We are very honoured to achieve this award, and continue to work every day to live up to it.

We are currently the only hospital in Burnaby offering laser surgery for pets. To learn more about laser surgery, check out our Surgical Laser and Therapeutic Laser pages, under the “Specialties” section.

We book 30 minute appointments to maximize your time with the doctors and staff and minimize your wait times.

Our team consists of a group of extremely dedicated individuals who are passionate about animals. Our veterinarians and all of our support staff strive to provide you and your pet with the best possible care through courteous and efficient service, as well as the most current medical and surgical techniques. We treat every client as an individual as we realize that every pet and its owner have different medical, emotional, and financial needs.

We appreciate any feedback, positive or negative, so that we can provide you with the best possible service. The greatest compliment you can give us is a referral to a friend or family member.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members

We are not accepting new patients at this time due to higher than normal case-loads, and pet boarding services are suspended until further notice. Thank you for your understanding. 

Note: If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms, please let us know when you book your pet’s appointment. As the potential to spread to pets is still relatively unknown, it is possible that your pet could create a risk to other people who may be handling him or her. Whenever possible, please send someone who is not experiencing respiratory symptoms to the appointment with your pet.

The following changes are effective as of March 2nd, 2022:

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur. 

If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out by email at info@southburnabyvethospital.com or by phone at 604-526-0334.
