Nanaimo Veterinary Hospital

About Us

Nanaimo Veterinary Hospital opened in July of 1999, after Dr. Brett Hayward purchased it and changed the name from Long Lake Veterinary Hospital. For the next fifteen years, Dr. Hayward was not only the owner/operator, but also the primary veterinarian.

After retiring from her house call practice in 2009, Dr. Pamela Damon joined NVH as a casual associate vet. In January of 2014, Dr. Hayward welcomed Dr. Clodagh Domegan to the practice to work with us two days a week. In September of 2014, Dr. Jill Harrison joined the practice as a full-time veterinarian.

While we may have grown from our early days as a one-doctor and on-call practice, we strive to maintain a connection with our community and really get to know our clients and their pets. We find that our clients appreciate our small, but well-equipped, hospital and our veterinarians' caring, thorough approach to patient care.
