Treatment Procedures in Nanaimo & Vancouver Island For Your Pet – They’re in Good Hands

Mahalo Veterinary Hospital is a full-service dog, cat, avian/bird, exotic mammal, fish, reptile, and pocket pet facility in Nanaimo, BC, servicing pets in the Vancouver Island area. Our team at Mahalo possesses decades of experience dedicated to animal health. We place a strong emphasis on wellness care and preventative medicine.

Preventative Care

Our veterinary team emphasizes keeping your pet healthy rather than caring for it when it becomes ill or injured. For puppies and kittens, we recommend you bring them in for a visit at least four times during their first year, so we can do thorough check-ups and ensure they are developing correctly. Adult pets should come in about once a year. Seniors benefit from more frequent wellness exams, to avoid medical problems associated with aging.

Wellness Exams

These exams include checking your pet’s:

  • Skin and fur (for rashes and parasites)
  • Teeth, gums, and tongue (for infections that can affect their entire body)
  • Measurements and weight (to ensure they’re a healthy size – if underweight or obese, we’ll counsel you on exercise and nutrition planning)
  • Vaccination needs
  • Heart, lungs, eyes, ears, nose and throat


We also offer a broad range of treatment procedures which include medical, dental, diagnostic and surgical services to assist your pet through every life stage and provide them with everything required to gain optimum health and vitality for the duration of their life.
