Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic


At the Bowmanville Veterinary clinic our Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians have over 150 years of combined experience. 


Our staff is passionate about animals and their well being and will provide you with all the options to treat your pet.


All of our staff attend continuing education seminars on a regular basis. We hold staff meetings several times a month to ensure that all of the staff are informed and educated on all of the new and ongoing medical and dietary advancements. It is also a great way to communicate and bond as a team. 


We are a licensed triage centre for wildlife and put our heart and soul into treating every patient as if they were our own; from mice to elephants, all animals are special to us.  If you are interested in becoming a wildlife transport driver please call the clinic at 905-623-4431.


Your pets are in the very best hands at the Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic.


The Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic is located in a beautiful park like setting with ample space to walk your dog before and after their appointment.  The clinic was first established in 1968 by Dr. John Higginson. This building was built in 1972 with an addition added in 1989. Dr. Wendy Korver began working here in 1987 when she graduated from the Ontario Veterinary College. In 1991 Dr. Ted Kilpatrick bought the clinic and 2 years later Dr. Ted and Dr. Wendy became co-owners of the clinic. In 2009 Dr. Ted retired and Dr. Wendy is now sole owner of the clinic. We are also honoured to be the veterinary practice that the Bowmanville Zoo uses to provide medical care to all of their animals.
