Welcome to Central Island Veterinary Emergency Hospital

If you think your pet has an emergency health issue, please contact us at 250-933-0913, and one of our team members will tell you the best course of action. If you aren’t sure if it’s an emergency, call us anyway and we can advise.

We are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. No appointment is needed – visit our hospital, and you will be seen as soon as possible.

Since June 2011, we have been open every day of the year to attend to animal emergencies. Our hospital services the majority of Vancouver Island outside of Victoria. We take walk-in emergencies, referrals from regular practitioners, and transfers of critically ill patients for round-the-clock care. As all patients are seen on a triage basis, we will always attend to the most critically ill patients first. Our dedicated and highly skilled staff are committed to providing urgent care with clarity and understanding to support our clients and patients during their time with us.
