Dr. Brianne Cantafio

Veterinarian

I graduated in 2015 from the University of Saskatchewan's Western College of Veterinary Medicine. I am originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. The best job I ever had was working at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, and I would have to say this was a huge inspiration for me in becoming a vet. I have lived and worked in all of the Western provinces. The area of veterinary medicine that interests me the most is pathology- during vet school, I worked at Prairie Diagnostic Services, a diagnostics laboratory where I learned about my interest in gross pathology.

I love working on Vancouver Island, and especially love working with my amazing coworkers and friends. I enjoy working beside several other vets- I feel we provide amazing medicine to our community! A fun fact about myself- I can read, write and speak Italian.

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.

1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

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

2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • 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
  • 3. OPERATING HOURS

    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!
