Large or Small, We Treat Them ALL!

Welcome to Tsolum Veterinary Hospital.  We are a mixed animal practice in the heart of Merville, located just behind the Merville General Store.  Though our office is small, we have big hearts for our clientele and their pets in our local and remote communities of Vancouver Island.  

Dr Patrick O’Brien started Tsolum Mobile Veterinary Health as an ambulatory large animal practice in 1998.  It was then purchased by Dr Peter Parke in 2003.  After many years of operating solely as a large animal practice, we listened to the needs of our growing community and, in 2013, added small animal veterinary care to our service offerings.

The team at Tsolum Veterinary Hospital provides full-service veterinary care to all animals – large and small – in the Comox Valley, Campbell River and surrounding communities.

Our talented, dedicated, and kind staff work hard to provide comprehensive and compassionate veterinary care. We offer quality medicine and surgery in a quiet, relaxed environment, where both the patient and owner can enjoy their visit.  Whether working in the hospital or heading out into the field, we work together like a family, and take great pride in helping all creatures, large or small.

Our Place or Yours?

Our veterinary hospital is small, but we have big hearts for our clientele and their companion animals.  We welcome dogs, cats, some small caged animals, and some baby farm animals at the hospital. We are located behind the Merville General Store which is at 6635 Island Highway, Merville.

Our farm call services focus mainly on large-scale dairy and hog operations, but we also work with beef cattle, sheep, goats, and more exotic large animals, such as llamas and bison.

Mobile livestock services are provided wherever you are, within the geographic region from the mid to tNorth Island, starting at the Errington/Parksville/Qualicum area, up to the Comox Valley and Campbell River, and west to Port Alberni.

From our farmers to our pet owners – the staff at Tsolum are dedicated to providing quality medical care for all of your animals.
