"I’ve been going to CVAH for as long as I’ve lived in the Comox Valley. I own bulldogs. That means that my dogs have all kinds of medical problems, common ones, and sometimes unusual ones. The vets at CVAH always treat me and my resident dogs and foster dogs with professionalism, kindness and compassion. They always make time for my pets in an emergency and make it easy for me to feel confident and relaxed with their care and common sense approach. Although I know Dr. Briggs the best, I wholeheartedly recommend all of the vets, and I am always happy to see Drs. MacDonald and Edgell as well. Dr. MacDonald is also a large animal vet. This gives him a special perspective that can help in hard-to-treat cases. Dr. Edgell’s expertise with ultrasound is another welcome skill. Your animals are lucky if they are patients here. You will find great vet care and a knowledgeable and caring staff."
