Winchelsea Veterinary Services (WVS) offers mobile preventative and emergency veterinary care for horses, at-home preventative and end-of-life care for companion animals (cats and dogs), and consultation for finfish aquaculture. Veterinary care for sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, and poultry may be arranged for current clients only.

Our practice area extends from Port Alberni to Ladysmith, with outreach to Lasqueti Island, Protection Island, Gabriola Island and Bamfield. Service outside of this area is on a case-by-case basis only.

Scheduled appointments and inquiries can be made online through Book an Appointment, or by calling the clinic phone number (250)-667-5534.

For emergency service, please call the office at (250) 667-5534.

Starting in 2024, WVS will be resetting some boundaries for access to veterinary care. A new Lego stop motion animated video (below, and at the link under “Veterinary Tales“) sets the stage for these changes:
