Welcome to Sardis Animal Hospital in Chilliwack, British Columbia

Sardis Animal Hospital’s commitment to exceptional pet care started in 1976 by Dr. John O. Anvik. His vision was to have a Chilliwack-based animal hospital that provides high-quality companion animal care – compassionate, cutting-edge service with integrity and respect. More recently Dr. Arden Powell has carried on the commitment to providing the same great care. From humble beginnings, we have grown to become a state-of-the-art Animal Hospital. From routine care, vaccinations and general surgery to comprehensive dentistry, medical imaging and emergency care, we are there for all your pet health care needs.

When you walk through our doors, you can expect:

  • Friendly service, and answers to all of your questions or concerns.
  • Veterinary care tailored to your pet’s unique needs
  • A contemporary medical environment with the latest available technology
  • Skilled doctors and technicians. We are all animal lovers and pet owners at Sardis Animal Hospital, and you can be confident that we will treat your pet with the same integrity and respect that we treat our own. We work hard to preserve the quality of life for pets and allow clients to create, nurture and appreciate the human-animal bond with their pets.

Contact us at 604.858.4415 if you’d like a tour of our hospital or would like to book an appointment for your furry family member!

Sardis Animal Hospital is an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital. We voluntarily earned our accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association in 1982. In order to maintain our status, we are regularly evaluated on more than 900 standards of veterinary excellence. This ensures we stay at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine, workplace safety, and client service. When you bring your pet to us, you can be confident that he or she will receive very high care. Learn why accreditation matters at healthypet.com.

Is my pet in pain?
