At the Royal Oak Pet Clinic, we work closely with Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital to provide additional veterinary services, perform surgery, emergency and critical care for your pet when needed.

Wellness and Preventive Medicine
We focus on helping you prevent disease and illness in your furry family members. Our goal is to help you minimize the need to treat and cure preventable diseases. Preventative medicine increases your pet’s chances of having a long and healthy life. We accomplish this through annual preventative health assessments and physical examinations, proper nutrition, parasite control and through the use of a vaccination program based on an individualized risk assessment for your pet.
Medical Diagnostics and Hospitalized Treatment
Blood testing can reveal a wealth of useful information about your pet’s state of health. Blood and urine samples can be collected at the clinic and then couriered to either Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital’s on site laboratory or to reference laboratory’s in Vancouver. Radiology equipment at the Hospital enables our veterinarians to take and process X-rays, allowing us to diagnose any malformations that may be affecting your pet. This ensures prompt treatment with a goal of getting your pet on the road to a speedy recovery.
Animal Behavior Consultations
An increasing number of products and training programs are available to help minimize or eliminate inappropriate behaviors in pets. Please feel free to consult with our staff should you have any questions or concerns regarding your pet’s behavior.
Nutritional Consultations and Pet Foods
We have a wide selection of veterinary pet foods and treats for both cats and dogs to them live a long and happy life. From adult maintenance diets to specially formulated diets, such as hypoallergenic and kidney formulations, we have a diet to suit your pet. If we do not carry the specific brand of food that you need, we can often order it in just for you.
We do routine dental work such as cleaning and extractions by appointment. A pre-dentistry examination is required before any dental surgery in order to determine what needs to be done and also to evaluate your pet’s surgical health.
