Granville Island Veterinary Hospital (GIVH) has updated protocols due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in BC. We are temporarily changing the way we do things to be a socially responsible business during this challenging time. Currently, companion animal veterinary practice is considered “non-essential” so protective measures must be taken to ensure we can stay open to help our furry loved ones. In order to limit direct contact with people, we will be allowing pets, but not people, into our building. We are trying to do our best to prevent the spread of the virus while still providing healthcare to our beloved pets. Below are instructions on how to proceed, starting Friday, March 20th, 2020. We ask for your patience during this transition as we work out the kinks and welcome any suggestions. Most of our practices assume you have a smartphone - if you do not please call ahead of time and we can work out an alternative solution.
