The original Kelowna Veterinary Hospital was opened in 1946 near the Apple Bowl. It was eventually rebuilt at its current location in 1981 by Dr. Barbara Coughlin, who had taken over the practice in 1977. She cultivated a solid small animal hospital that is the foundation of what we are today. Our clinic is Kelowna's first-ever veterinary hospital.
