Close Island Veterinary Hospital

This petition had 58 supporters


This is a petition to call for the Closure of Island Veterinary Hospital located at 1800 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC.

I have personally had bad experiences with Island Veterinary Hospital and have read and heard many other accounts. It seems that they like to give pets unnecessary treatments and tests that can add up and be quite costly. I had an experience where where my ferret was misdiagnosed and put through many treatments that proved to be unhelpful. I have heard of them refusing to put down an 18 year old dog, (whose time was clearly coming to a painful end),unless X-rays and other tests were done first. Another account I heard is of a dog being put on a fentanyl drip for three days to just let it slowly fade away. The staff has been known to threaten to call the SPCA on pet owners if they try to argue or refuse the recommended treatments. I believe that they have no compassion for our pets and that all they care about is money.

I invite all pet owners who have had negative experiences with this Veterinary clinic to tell their stories here and to sign the petition. We need to have this clinic and its veterinarians investigated and held to a higher level of standards, or for the whole business to be shut down.
