Welcome to Petroglyph Animal Hospital in Nanaimo, British Columbia
We are a full-service veterinary hospital offering routine preventive health care, elective and emergency surgery, medical diagnostic work and treatment, and hospitalization of sick animals.
We are equipped with digital x-ray and digital ultrasound, which allow for excellent visualization of both boney and soft tissues, as well as allowing us to electronically send x-rays and ultrasound images to radiologists and surgeons for specialist opinions.
We are also equipped with an on-site laboratory, which allows us to provide blood counts and blood chemistry and electrolyte analyses in a more timely manner than sending to an outside lab. This technology allows us to closely monitor critically ill patients, and also allows us to provide blood test results in emergency and after-hours situations.
In addition to general medicine and surgery, our small animal veterinarians have special interests in ophthalmology, diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, oncology and chemotherapy, and surgical repair of cruciate ligament injury. We offer basic and advanced dental services (see Small Animal Dentistry).
We are a companion animal practice with full hospital services for dogs & cats. Our emphasis is on preventive care and excellent client communication and follow-up. To learn about our hospital policies, click here.
