Welcome to Pacific Rim Veterinary Hospital in Port Alberni, BC


COVID-19: Measures we are taking


Last updated: May 30, 2020

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020, the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies. 


This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit http://myvetstore.ca/pacificrimvet


We are OPEN with the following hours:

  • Monday to Friday: 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!

- Your dedicated team at Pacific Rim Veterinary Hospital


Pacific Rim Veterinary Hospital Port Alberni opened in February 2008. It all started with Dr. Patty and Dr. Holly having lunch one day and tossing around a few ideas. It didn't take long for one particular idea to take on a life of its own; before the two of them could blink they were partners in business and construction had started. At times things moved too quickly, and at other times things seemed to stand still. However, time does not standstill. Before the paint had dried (almost literally) the hospital was open and they hit the ground running. The staff that has come together is a gentle mix of old friends and new faces that provides an excellent balance and an exceptional work atmosphere. Both Dr. Patty and Dr. Holly share similar philosophies in striving to provide high-quality medicine in a comfortable and accessible hospital setting. It is important to the doctors that the staff enjoy and are proud of what they do.
