I'm Dr. Anne Walsh
I make house calls to provide end-of-life care for pets,
striving to keep the visit calm, peaceful and respectful
for the pets and for the people who love them.
Joining me is Dr Alicia Ashley, whose kind, gentle nature is wonderful for putting pets and their families at ease.
Dr Alicia Ashley provides compassionate end-of-life care to pets in Nanaimo and surrounding areas.
We visit homes 6 days a week
Monday through Saturday
(closed on Sunday)
Families often get in touch to book a day or so in advance, or even same day.
Booking is available online, by phone call/text, or by email.
If we do have an appointment booked ahead of time and then it's just not the right day, we are also fine with cancellations. We don't charge a cancellation fee.

Your pet can come home with me. I will arrange the aftercare (cremation) of your choice.
I carry a stretcher with me.

the fees are:
Small dog: $100
Medium dog: $150

If an individual cremation is chosen,
with the pet handled separately from any others
and the ashes delivered home in about a week,
The individual aftercare fee would be:
The general cremation price plus $150.
