Where care & compassion are more than just words

The BRVC is a long-standing Canmore business that has worked diligently for over 20 years to provide high quality and compassionate veterinary care for clients in the Bow Valley.

Closed Waiting Room Policy

As per government direction, we will be implementing a closed-door policy.

For scheduled appointments, we ask that clients call in when they arrive( 403-678-9595). A receptionist will perform a check-in over the phone and once complete, a staff member will come to your car to retrieve your pet. During the appointment, a doctor can phone conference with you from your vehicle, if needed.

For food orders and prescription refills, please call ahead to place your order and process payment. Allow 24 hours for prescription refills. No cash will be accepted at this time. When you are ready to pickup, please call and we will place your order on the pickup table outside. Please note that the food distributors are currently not accepting food returns.

My Vet Store is now available to all of our clients. Orders can be sent directly to your door or picked up in-store. To create an account, register at http://myvetstore.ca/bowriverveterinarycentre

Boarding services have been suspended until further notice.

We are doing our part to keep the community safe by social distancing, and we appreciate your efforts to assist us. Our goal is to keep everyone protected so we can continue to care for your loved ones.

We know that your pets are important to you; we want you to know that your pets are important to us too, and we promise to provide you and your pets with the best veterinary care that they can receive.

We offer a full range of services in one easy-to-find location in Canmore. Our practice provides compassionate care, behaviour training, dental care, examinations, grooming, laboratory services, spaying/neutering, surgery, ultrasound, vaccinations, x-rays, and an extensive retail shop for everything your dog or cat might desire including bedding, collars & leashes, cat meats, kibble, and toys.

No one likes visiting the vet, but our clients and their parents travel to us from Canmore, Banff, Calgary, and even British Columbia to receive the pet care they know they can depend on.
