New Patients Receive 15% Off

Welcome to Ambleside Animal Hospital!



Monday-Sunday 9am-5pm 

UPDATE May 3rd:


WE NOW HAVE AN ONLINE STORE!  Did you want to have your food and supplements shipped directly to your home to maintain your social distancing?  Just click here and sign up to get access to the full rage of veterinary diets and supplements (no prescription medications at this time, sorry!).


In response to the ongoing concerns of the COVID-19 virus, we will be closing the clinic to human members of the public, effective immediately. We will still be seeing 4 legged members, however we ask that you call us once you get to the hospital. We will come out to get your pet for the exam, and complete the consult over the phone.

In an effort to conserve limited supplies (and limited staff time while so many are ill or self-quarantining), we will be deferring any wellness or elective appointments until further notice.  We are still available during the above hours if your pet is ill or having an emergency and please do not hesitate to contact us.

Food and medication can still be picked up, but please call in advance for all orders. Once ready, we can take payment by credit card over the phone and then bring the food or medication outside for you.  Please be able to meet us at our side door for pickup. Due to supply shortages, receiving your order may take up to 48 hours longer than normal.

During this time of limited staff availability, we are attempting to keep up with the volume of calls.  To help us out, please consider texting or emailing us your concern if not emergent. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

We will continue to keep you updated as the situation evolves, but we appreciate your patience and understanding as we attempt to do our part to slow the spread of this virus. If you have any questions or concerns, please email or text us at 604-922-4157.

Stay safe everyone!
