Welcome to Bow River Veterinary Centre in Canmore, AB

Where Care and Compassion are more than just words.

The Bow River Veterinary Centre is a long-standing practice located in the beautiful community of Canmore, Alberta. Our team has worked diligently to provide high quality and compassionate veterinary care for cherished pets in the Bow Valley and surrounding areas. For over 20 years, our clients and patients have travelled to us from Canmore, Banff, Calgary, and nearby B.C. towns to receive the pet care they know they can depend on.

We understand that your pet is an extended member of your family. For this reason, our team of experienced veterinary practitioners and knowledgeable support staff are dedicated to providing you and your four-legged friend with the best veterinary care possible.

Our practice offers a full range of services in one easy-to-find location in Canmore, including examinations, vaccinations, deworming, dental procedures, general surgery, laboratory services, ultrasound, radiography and grooming. We also have an extensive Online Store with many products that your furry friend might desire, including prescription diets, treats, supplements, grooming essentials, collars and leashes, toys and more.

 As pet owners, we understand how precious and cherished our furry friends are. Taking care of them, protecting them, and keeping them safe and comfortable the best, we can always be our top priority. We will care for your beloved pet the same as we would care for our own. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at your next consultation. Feel free to contact us at 403.678.9595 if you have any questions about our services.
