Great vet

My dog, Bella, is pretty skittish. It’s impossible to brush her teeth and cut her nails. It’s an event that rarely happens. Still, the vet here is always so kind and gentle with Bella. They recognize her shy nature and work with it, not against it. We wouldn’t go anywhere else. The care and knowledge here are very good. Front desk area isn’t so impressive but the vet, prices, location and care are amazing.

Always kind, professional and efficient. I wouldn’t trust my pets health to just anyone. This is my “go to” vet.

Anyone looking for a caring and quality veterinarian should definitely come here. Everyone is so friendly and professional here. I wouldn’t bring my Boxer anywhere but here. They take great care of him for a very reasonable price.

Indifferent, unhelpful

I've been coming here for a long time, and most of the day staff are rude, indifferent and keep you waiting a long time. When I see the glowing reviews here, it really makes me wonder if they are talking about the same clinic. If my budget ever improves, they will lose me faster than you can imagine, but unfortunately I know of no clinic that charges cheaper for the medication my pet needs.

I was quoted $5000 for surgery at another vet then came to Dr. Bhuller who quoted less than half the price. Surgery came out perfect, thanks Dr. Bhuller.

Very Patient & Helpful

Our old, sweet kitty had been going through a rough year. We'd been doing regular visits with our other vet, but things weren't working out. After a particularly bad Saturday morning we took him to Atlas Animal Hospital. It was time - it was the hardest thing we've ever had to do and I don't have much nice to say about that day, but the people there were so nice and respectful. We won't forget how kind they were as my husband and I were quiet distressed. The vet (I can't remember names) was very patient and talked us through the process.

It is a relief to know that I can count on them

I'm usually somewhat sensitive to the cold, so I was a little worried that their office would be too cold, but it was fine. I was very comfortable the entire time. One thing I noticed about their office was how absolutely fantastic it smelled. They must clean or sanitize all the time. They were so easy to reach in an emergency, they answered my call immediately. It is a relief to know that I can count on them to always be there for me when I need them the most. Just as a side note, I was very impressed with how conveniently located this office was. It was so easy to find, I didn't have any trouble at all. I've been to other vets that have designated areas for dogs to go to the bathroom but I didn't see one here. It really wasn't that big of deal though because there was a little grass outside the office so it was fine.

Nice and friendly

My puppy has been there for treatment many times and has seen Dr. Bhuller and the staff. They are very nice, kind, thorough, and present realistic options, while keeping cost in mind as a consideration. His staff are always incredibly kind and helpful and have provided lots of good advice over the phone and squeezed us in when we needed it.

This hospital is so devoted to their work. I love how they really care about my puppies. I know people might think I madly care for my puppies like they are they child. But I thought I was going to lose them but they were amazing. Everything they did for my puppies made my day brighter and happier. I don't know what I would do if they weren't there for me.

Absolutely Amazing

This place is absolutely amazing. They take the best pro-active care of my cats, when I leave I feel 100% content with the answers they have provided and the care my cats have received. Unlike other vets they don't try to push all these meds and tests on your pets, they take everything one step at a time and you can tell they really care about your pets. I recommended Atlas Animal Hospital to everyone I know with a pet in need of a check up or some care.

Reliable Friendly Facility

It is hard for me to find a place for my giant German Shepherd. Believe it or not, some vets are actually afraid of handling him - the big lug is not dangerous, he just squirms a lot! When the problems arise, I need help right away. (the dog has a number of genetic diseases). Recently, he ran into a flowerpot while chasing a cat, and required no less than cosmetic surgery on his face and eye area. The Doctor and his team did a great job, and my dog looks as good as new....with very reasonable bill, as well. The office and clinic are very well run, professional and are always there during posted work hours. I guess this means "reliable". Always recommend their services to everyone.

If you need to make a quick decision:
- Don't come care if price is not too much of a concern and you just want good attention.
- Do come here if you're extremely strapped for cash, or it's late night and nothing is open.

It's getting complicated to have an animal put down in Vancouver, because you aren't supposed to bury the animal on your property. So most vets, when you call for the price of a euthanasia, will first ask whether you want a private or general cremation; obviously the former is more expensive. In addition, the other vet clinics that are open at night charge a "night premium" of over a hundred... more
