Providing veterinary care to families residing on South Vancouver Island & surrounding areas.

Since 1981 our mission has been to provide you and your pet with: progressive, quality animal health care with up to date facilities, medical technology and staff training; in a caring, compassionate environment, and to be a leader in service with a commitment to the well-being of animals, the public and our staff.

Juan de Fuca Veterinary Clinic is a full service veterinary hospital serving the Westshore area since 1981. John Gayfer and John Basterfield started working together in 1980 at the original location near Royal Roads University. Very soon, they realized that ownership was the direction they wanted to go, and so, together they purchased Juan de Fuca Veterinary Clinic in 1981. In 1988, Margaret Cairns joined the practice as an associate veterinarian and it wasn’t long before she became the third valuable partner.
