Where Pets Come First
Bowness Animal Hospital has been offering outstanding animal care in Bowness since January 2018. Sometimes it's tough to know where to turn when your dog or cat isn't feeling well. That's why we opened Bowness Animal Hospital in the NW Calgary. We treat every animal that walks through our doors as though it was our own.
We are excited to be a part of the Bowness community and offer routine veterinary services such as physical examinations, diagnostics, vaccinations and diet consultations. We offer spay, neuter, and dental services as well as other select surgeries. We are currently open 6 days a week for appointments.
Our dedicated and caring team of professionals offer a vast array of experience and expertise — making us number 8 on The Best in Calgary website.

We’ve been taking our Shih Tzu Roscoe here for the past 4 years. Everyone we’ve dealt with at the front desk to the the vet himself, have all been lovely and professional. They all clearly love animals and are passionate about their work. The cost is very reasonable and the location is close to home. Roscoe also loves the liver treats that flow like candy!
