Very caring and professional staff. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The office is spacious and clean, with hand sanitizers conveniently located throughout. My dog loves everyone at 48th Ave, and is intrigued by the black kitty!

We are so THANKFUL for the care from 48th Ave Animal Hospital for our 11 month old Mango who swallowed a Barbie doll jacket? (still to be determined) and got stuck. She couldn’t keep any food down for a few days & we were hoping she could pass it out, as she wasn’t in any pain. Our only critique was that they told us they didn’t have an Ultrasound Machine & we would have to go to an Emergency clinic for that. My Initial reaction was what kind of Animal Hospital doesn’t have an Ultra Sound machine? Did we choose the wrong Animal Hospital as Mango primary caregiver? On our 2nd consultation for Mango’s Digestive Obstruction, the Vet, prescribed some more meds & some soft pate canned digestive food to help pushed the blockage out. As well suggested the next step, would be a Barium X-ray to determine the exact spot of the blockage for the extraction surgery. But thank goodness the combination of meds & soft canned food pushed the rest of the blockage out and she was back to her normal self. We were able to get her into a Britney Spears Costume for Halloween (She wasn’t happy 🙂 ) 48th Ave Animal Hospital has always came through for us & Mango. Thank you again.

Nova LOVES going to 48th. I mean she starts squealing when we take our exit after the tunnel, and will try and jump out of the window before I’m even parked to get to the front door. She has yet to show any other place this much enthusiasm. I drive from Kitsilano to Ladner for this very reason. The staff make me feel just as welcome, and entertain my questions and concerns with such kindness (I have previous experience losing a pet suddenly and tragically), and they are totally cool with my sister coming along for most appointments to help me communicate if I’m too overwhelmed. The Vets there take the time to explain things in a way that is easy to understand and remember, and I appreciate that (I’m neurodivergent and struggle with lengthy verbal instructions).

I have been taking my dogs to 48th Ave Animal Hospital for several years. I have always received great service from 48th Ave, very friendly knowledgeable staff. They have always treated my Furbaby’s like they were there own. They put you at ease when worried about your pet. They give you quotes and explain the procedure and the follow up results. I would highly recommend.
