We have moved to expand our services! In response to the dire and growing needs for pet medical care in the Valley, we have expanded into a full hospital.  Our name has changed from Shawnigan Lake Veterinary Wellness Practice to Kinsol Veterinary Clinic but our commitment to Comfort Care and Compassion has remained paramount in all that we do.

We are now open at our new location in the Crossroads Centre at the corner of Koksilah Rd and Highway 1.

Services available at our new location:

  • General medicine including wellness exams, vaccines, and day emergencies
  • General Surgery
  • Radiology, both dental and full body
  • Dentistry
  • In house lab
  • Nutrition counselling
  • Palliative Care
  • Personalized euthanasia
  • House Calls


To provide exemplary care to all patients through the highest standards of medical, surgical, dental, and human animal bond practices. To educate the families of pets with complete transparency, and to serve both pets and people with compassion, equality and fairness.


In keeping with our mission statement, we strive to care for your pets as we would our own treasured furry family members. Our clients enjoy longer appointment times, friendly and helpful staff, and our patients benefit from fear free handling. We believe in and promote vaccines, parasite control, pet insurance, research based nutrition and preventative dentistry.

We know this isn’t for everyone, and we are not here to judge you, but if your philosophy differs from ours or you are looking for a quick fix then we may not be the best fit for your pet care needs. Honesty is one of our core values, and we want to start off our relationships right.

If you feel that your pet care values align with ours then please give us a call or send us an email to discuss registering your furry family. We look forward to meeting you!
