Taylor Surgery

Canada West Veterinary Specialists is a Vancouver-based referral centre for advanced and acute veterinary care.  We work as an extension of your family veterinarian to provide specialized care for your pet.

Our hospital is home to some of Canada’s most advanced veterinary equipment including 64-slice CT scanner, on-site MRI, an in-house reference laboratory, and the ability to place pacemakers.  We are the disaster response center for animals for Greater Vancouver, a dedicated sentinel site for the BC Centre for Disease Control, and we regularly train police K-9 units on emergency canine care and treat service dogs from a variety of municipalities.

Our team of approximately 20 specialists and emergency veterinarians and 80+ technicians and staff work together to provide care 24/7/365 days a year, and pursue the best possible outcome for each patient entrusted in our care.
