Your Veterinary Partner

If you've ever searched online for information on your pet's health issues, you've likely learned that it can often cause, rather than soothe, anxieties. While the Internet can be an excellent way get an immediate answer to a simple question, it is not always the best place to look for information regarding veterinary issues, as one is apt to come across worst case scenario horror stories, unverified information, and untested homeopathic remedies that may actually do more harm than good.

So, what do you do if you're looking for more information on a pet's health issue, a medication her or she has been prescribed or if you have an animal health question and we are closed? Head over to A companion site of the Veterinary Information Network (VIN), which is the quintessential database for veterinary experts, VeterinaryPartner contains hundreds of up-to-date, informative articles written by experts, specifically with the pet owner in mind. Whether your question relates to surgery, medication, behavior, flea treatments, nutrition, or any other issue related to pet health, you are likely to find at least one helpful article on the site. If not, you can use the "Ask a Vet" feature and receive an answer via email.

The veterinarians and staff of the Nanaimo Veterinary Hospital wholeheartedly endorse and recommend as an excellent resource for pet health information. In fact, some of us have used the site ourselves with great success.

Of course, if you are dealing with an emergency, we would recommend that you call us, or, if it is after hours, contact our colleagues at the Central Island Veterinary Emergency Hospital.
