We are now a VECCS Certified Level 1 facility!

BBVSH is proud to have recently been certified with the highest of the three levels offered by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society, making us just the second one in all of Canada


BBVSH has been certified as a Level I Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Facility by the Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (VECCS). To achieve this certification, the highest of VECCS’ three levels, BBVSH had to establish that it was properly staffedtrained, and equipped to handle any major emergency experienced by small mammals.
