Crescent Falls Veterinary Hospital in Vernon BC All About Us

Our services include:

    • Routine health exams - We recommend that all pets be seen for a yearly health exam, during which we can answer all of your health questions.
    • Vaccinations - Vaccines are a vital part in ensuring a healthy start in the life of your puppy or kitten, and in the continued health of your dog or cat.
    • Preventative health measures - There are many things we can advise you on to help your pet live a long, full and healthy life. These can include but are not limited to diet, exercise, and environment.

Testimonials

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Finding a superb vet was a priority for our 13 year old Collie, Braidie. We were extremely fortunate to discover Dr. Ringness who is deeply caring and supportive of her patients and their humans. She explains treatment options clearly and works with us. The best testimony is that Braidie, a “frequent flyer” at Crescent Falls Vet Hospital, used to be afraid at other clinics, but now she waltzes confidently through the door to be greeted by the friendly, relaxed, efficient Staff."
    Braidie, Chris & Ann H. Vernon, BC
