    All the staff were super friendly and reassuring. The vet was very

    was absolutely spotless and all staff were friendly. Definitely recommend
    this place."

    treatment plan. All staff, whether it's Vet doctors, Technicians or

I've dealt with this Vet hospital on all ranges from regular checkups, routine maintenance, acute situations, and the process of euthanasia, and I can only give the best reviews. I do not hesitate to recommend this business."
  • "We have taken all our animals to this great clinic for many, many years. Dr
    Kopp, Dr Nixon and all their team have always treated our little ones with
    compassion and professionalism. Its very clear that the Doctors and Vet
    Techs here really love animals too. When it was time to put our dog of 18yrs
    down, they helped him leave this world with dignity and grace. A few days
    later, they sent us a bouquet and card with their condolences. It was a very
    touching gesture during a very hard time for us. I would never dream of
    bringing our pets anywhere else. Thank you so much to everyone at Lindsay
    Vet Hospital!"

  • "This is one of the best vets I have ever used. They are caring and honest and so such a great job."
  • "The best veterinary clinic in Penticton by far, IMHO. I've been to other
    vets in the area over the last 25 years (with 2 cats and a dog) and the
    Lindsey Veterinary Hospital has by far the most caring and compassionate staff. I've found that particularly helpful when dealing with end-of-life scenarios."
  • "He
    graciously allowed myself and my family the extra time needed to say goodbye
    to our beloved pet before taking time out of his personal schedule to meet
    with us in the middle of a holiday weekend to say our final goodbyes. I am
    currently battling cancer which has stretched my finances and Dr. Kopp
    showed great compassion in helping me with these financial costs during what
    has been a very stressful time for me. Dr. Kopp went above and beyond what I
    could have reasonably expected for veterinary care and I would not hesitate
    to recommend the Lindsey Veterinary Hospital to anyone due to the excellent
    care shown to both myself and, more importantly, my cherished dog. My
    deepest thanks and best wishes to Dr. Kopp and all the staff at Lindsey
    Veterinary Hospital"
