Qualicum Beach Animal Hospital is a privately-owned, family-run veterinary hospital located in the heart of Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. The practice was purchased in 2015 by Dr. Ashley Bernauer, and has since grown from a tiny clinic into a full service veterinary hospital. Currently we have 4 veterinarians, and a big happy family of support staff. In the fall of 2019, we moved to our new facility on Beach Rd.

Although the practice has grown in size, our original core values and level of care have not changed. We continue to care for our patients and clients like they are part of the family. Caring for your pet is not just our job, it is truly our passion.


We are excited to be able to offer a growing number of services to our clients and patients, including various orthopedic surgeries, acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, and laser therapy - just to name a few. We also carry a growing selection of nutritional supplements, as well as both veterinary and special holistic diet options for pets.

Patient comfort in the hospital is very important to us - we have designed our hospital to be cozy, comfortable and calm. All staff members, from our client care representatives, assistants, nurses to veterinarians, have also had Fear Free training - you can read more about the benefits of Fear Free Pets here
