  • "The people at the PG Veterinary Hospital are amazing! They treat the animals and their 'parents' with such compassion, no matter what the situation. I have been coming here since I came to Prince George in 1968. Over the years I have had several dogs and they never disappoint. My latest dog Wookie had several problems in March and they went the extra mile to pinpoint what the problem was and although she is 14 1/2 now I still have her with me and I am very grateful. Thanks to everyone there!!!"

  • "We rescued Kiyah last year at 3yrs old and her first visit to a vet in Alberta was so scary for both of us. Since moving here PGVet was highly recommended to us but was still anxious. I brought Kiyah to PGVet and her experience was AMAZING! She didn't try to leave or back herself into a corner, in face she was so excited of all the petting and treats she got. Thank you for such an amazing experience. The doctors & staff are so caring and loving. Will go to no other place as long as we live here."
