Welcome to Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic

Excellence in Care for Pets and Their Families since 1972

We are a small animal, avian and exotic animal practice, which means we not only see cats and dogs but also rabbits, ferrets, reptiles, birds, pocket pets; well you get the idea. We have been providing exotic animal care since 1987.

Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic is turning 50!!!!

Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic first opened its doors in 1972!

It was a very different world back then. A world before desktop computers, mobile phones, and diagnostic tools such as ultrasound and the ability to run our own blood work in clinic.

When it first opened, BVC was known as a “mixed animal” practice and what is now our garage was used to treat cows, horses and various other large animals.  Over the years, BVC transitioned from caring for large and small animals to mainly small animals.  In 1987, Dr. Wendy Korver joined BVC and began welcoming avian and exotic patients to the practice.  

Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic continues to dedicate itself to providing the best and most scientific-based medicine to all of our patients. We place a high level of importance on diagnostic tools, preventative medicine and education for staff and clients.  

Veterinary care has progressed far beyond “just giving your pet its shots”. We are committed to providing the best possible care to your furry, feathered or scaled friend combined with lots of TLC, of course. We pride ourselves on our outstanding veterinarians and support staff and we are here for your pet whenever you need us.

Client Testimonials & Reviews

At Bowmanville Veterinary Clinic, we have been dedicated to providing our care to the community since 1972, and we strive to treat your pets with the same care and compassion as if they were our own.

I can't say enough good things in this small space about Dr. Wendy Korver.  I had a very sick Koi fish last summer, and she went above and beyond to help me save my favorite fish in the pond.  She's an extremely talented veterinarian who doesn't shy away from a challenge, and she's supported by a terrific staff at BVC.  They now all know "Lady of the Lake", and heartfelt thanks to all of them for going the extra mile to help me save Lady!

Great service from the entire clinic. My guinea pig and I are very grateful for the very informative veterinarian and wonderfully caring vet techs. Prices are reasonable and no unnecessary procedures were hidden from my knowledge.

Very compassionate and kind, treated my special fur baby with love, patience, and understanding they explained everything to me and provided comfort when I had to put my cat down. Dr. Josh was great, I am very happy that I chose Bowmanville Veterinary for my cat in a difficult time. Highly recommended. My family also goes here, which I did not know, so we overall really like it here.
