"Thank you Dr. B you helped me ease my old girl thru her senior years, the difference in her quality of life was like night to day. She lived to be a happy 17"

- K. Rothweiler, Duncan, B.C. 

"Dr Brenda, it's inspiring to see how caring for and healing animals is blessing the planet.
For everyone who takes it for granted, I hope there are many others who are led to think that much more kindly about animals - and the heroes amongst us like you"

-Marion Cumming, Victoria

After my dog injured himself I wanted to know how to support him more holistically:  nutrition, supplements and alternative therapies.  I found Dr Bernhardt on line and quickly and easily arranged a phone consult. I received an incredible amount of information and all my questions were answered.  At the end of our phone consult, I felt confident and equipped to support my best friend in the best way possible.  I am so grateful for her work and I highly recommend a consult with Dr Brenda and you don’t have to wait till your pet is sick or injured!

Caroline and Wisky, Victoria


I’m so glad I found Dr Brenda.  My senior dog, Jackie, had stomach problems for several years and the vets weren’t able to help her, no matter how much I spent!  She had diarrhea, often with blood and was just not her perky Jack Russell self.  I learned so much during our phone consult and understand my dog so much better now.  Jackie's been on Dr Brenda’s Detox & Gut Support and is doing great- what a difference that consult made for both of our lives. Thank you Dr Brenda - Jackie means the world to me and the improvement in her quality of life is remarkable.

- Donna Peters, Duncan, B.C


"When we received the diagnosis of cancer on our little dog  we were devastated and didn't know what to do.

I found Dr Brenda's website on-line and it just made sense that holistic support could be a benefit for our wee guy.
We planned a phone consult - so easy and reasonably priced for over an hour long consult with an experienced holistic doctor!
Dr Brenda's guidance and support were beyond our expectations.   We can hardly believe how Gus's quality of life has improved with the nutritional guidance and immune support that Dr Brenda recommended.  He's a happy guy now, playing ball and jumping around and his tumours have shrunk in size, some are nearly gone!
Needless to say, we're very happy too!  Thank you Dr. Brenda for more quality time with our little pal Gus!  
-Dellaroo & Danny Watts, Red Deer, AB
"Very glad to have found Dr. Brenda's website after Sheena, one of my much-loved dogs, had a leg amputated because of bone cancer.  Not wanting to pursue chemotherapy because of my dog's age and aversion to vet procedures, I still wanted to do all within my power to support her in the time she has left.  I had a phone consultation with Dr. Brenda and received a wealth of great advice on diet and supplements.  Two and a half months post amputation and Sheena is doing very well.  Thanks Dr. Brenda."
-J Cooper, Victoria, B.C.

Thank you to Dr. Brenda for all her help and guidance during a very difficult period in our lives. Our beloved 7 yr old schnauzer Toby was recently diagnosed with an inoperable mass in his neck.   Dr Brenda showed compassion and was worth every penny and more of the phone consult.  She quickly devised a plan for Toby's cancer to help put his body into a better state of healing and since then has also guided us on our younger schnauzer Oscar.  She is filled with knowledge and she is what our pet world needs more of!  Our journey has just begun but we feel confident in Dr Brenda's abilities to help give our dogs the best chance they have at a healthier life. 

Thank you Dr Brenda!   

- Denise Prasad, Parksville

Well-loved Zoey Johnson

Thank you Dr. Brenda.  We're already noticing some small improvements in Zoey this evening so we are very hopeful. 

You've given me hope. 

I can't express how much your help means to us.


-Val and Rick Johnson, Caycuse




Dr Brenda has wonderful holistic products and information for your pet’s wellness.  She has 23 years of veterinary practice that she brings to a holistic consult.  I’ve really enjoyed having her come to our home to see Bensen.  How he loves that wonderful  venison jerky that Dr Brenda makes!

-Katherine Worsley, Lake Cowichan


"Thank you, Dr Brenda, for coming to our aid so quickly, for spotting things that other vets had missed, and for helping us here at home where Parker was happiest. We'll never forget your care and comfort (with our daughter, too, and even our cat--you were brilliant), or Parker enjoying your venison jerky right to the end. So glad we found you."

- Carrie Martin, Lake Cowichan

 Dr. Brenda, I would just like to say how grateful I was for you to come out and care for my lovely senior girl cat, Jemmey.  I never thought I'd see her play again but after your visit she got to have a better summer than I thought possible.  Your suggestions re supplements made a big difference, just wish I'd called earlier.  She was totally relaxed and trusting, and your expert loving care was wonderful to behold. You have a gift for connecting with animals and their people which seems to come so naturally to you.  Our Cowichan area is fortunate to have you here to share your vast knowledge and commitment to pet welfare with us. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to pet owners here. My family was blown away by your visit and how you expertly allowed Jem to be free from pain and on to a new adventure. Thanks so much from all of us. 
Marg Corbett, Lake Cowichan


Just wanted to reiterate my thanks  for all the care you provided for all my animals today. It is very comforting to me to know that we are all in such good hands . Your expert care &  input means so much and is keeping me where I need to be, more then you know....Thanks again...

-Sue Head, Honeymoon Bay

Dr. Brenda, thank you so much for every thing you did, every call you made and how much you cared.  I could have written you a novel for all the good things you did for us and PJ.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us a little more time with our boy.  He meant the world to us!


-Evelyn and Peter, Duncan


Dr. Brenda Bernhardt is my first call when animal concerns arise.  I SO appreciate the ease of her house calls for my old kitty and dog at my convenience. Swapping out pharmaceuticals for her recommended holistic remedies has proved valuable for my fur babies. She is professional, knowledgable and obviously loves animals, keeping their comfort and wellbeing a priority.    

-Tara Longridge, Lake Cowichan

I met Dr Brenda when my girl Tory, a Malamute cross, was 14 years old and suffering. Dr Brenda helped my family say goodbye to the best friend I have ever had with compassion, knowledge, comprehensive care and integrity. It is the darkest day when you have to say goodbye to a family member that has given you the happiest days of your life, and Dr Brenda has the grace and professional capacity to help when everything is falling apart. Thank you Dr Brenda, my family appreciates you and everything you do 
‎-Cristine MacKenzie‎, Mesachie Lake

Thank you Dr Brenda, for your warmth and caring. You are an outstanding veterinarian, kind and compassionate.

Thanks to you we could give our Ishi the "Gift of Relief" and he left very gently, over the Rainbow Bridge.

     -John & Ulla Plank, Lake Cowichan


"Two years ago I took over the care of two pet rats. Shortly after getting to know and appreciate their unique personalities, Bella had a stroke. With deep compassion Dr. Brenda helped us to end Bella's physical pain and to set her sweet spirit free. I grew to love Lulu the same as all of my previous animal companions – wholeheartedly. It was difficult, when the time came, to watch her face the physical decline of her small body as her lifetime drew closer to the end. I called Dr. Brenda to help us, yet again, set a sweet spirit free. For the second time she came and gracefully helped us travel through the joy, sorrow and acceptance of the mystery of death. I will always remember her kindness and support as her spirit is now intimately tied to my joyful memories of Bella and Lulu.
The world would indeed be a more compassionate place if everyone treated animals like Dr. Brenda!!"

- Tiffany, Duncan


We highly recommend Dr. Brenda as our kitties veterinarian. She is always kind and competent and has their best interests at heart.  We knew they were in excellent hands in her care. She always goes beyond the call of duty for our pets.

                            Thank you Dr. Brenda!!!

"Dr Brenda's wonderful support, sensitivity, and tender service as our dear dog passed was beautiful and so very reassuring. We had a very real and full sense of the depth of her caring and commitment to service...every question fully answered...every possible comfort in place."
- Ray and Penny Wassman, Cowichan Bay

Jolene's Friends!

 "Dr Brenda provides safe and cost effective treatment options for our pets. She is so kind to even the smallest of animals. We had a pet rat and in her old age she got sick. Dr Brenda helped her out afterhours so she didn't suffer.
As a student I worked at a vet office where Dr. Brenda was employed. I was able to see behind the scenes how great a vet she is!!
I've been a client of Dr. Brenda's since 2000 and for as long as she is practicing, she will always be part of our and our pets lives!!"

-Jolene Loewen, Meades Creek


For over 14 years Dr. Brenda Bernhardt has been a primary care giver for our animals. Dr. Brenda has proven to be a caring, compassionate, and patient veterinarian who is able to put her patients and their owners at ease. Dr. Brenda always takes the time to explain procedures and treatment options and is also proactive in preventative medicine. We are confidant that Dr. Brenda makes the right diagnosis and offers the best possible treatment plan for our animals. She offers a home visit program which has been most beneficial for our animals by eliminating the stress associated with an office visit. We would highly recommend Dr. Brenda Bernhardt to anyone looking for a highly competent veterinary care-giver for their animals.

Days before Christmas, our beautiful, little Lucy cat, had to be put down after 18 years with our family. Dr. Brenda was supportive on the phone and was at our home within a few hours. She was very compassionate, made suggestions to help our two dogs deal with Lucy's passing, and did not rush the process. Dr. Brenda also checked in with us the next day and again offered kind words of compassion and support. We encourage anyone searching for a kind, ethical veterinarian to call Dr. Brenda.

Jillian and Glen, Youbou

We have used Dr. Brenda's services on a number of occasions, some ending happily and others sadly. She has always treated our needs and our beloved pets with the utmost compassion, skill and understanding. We believe Dr. Brenda to have a unique rapport with all animals and would highly recommend her services. A treat for your pet is to meet Dr.Brenda. They won't mind going to the vet ever again.

Handsome boy Ranger

Dr. Brenda has been my primary vet since 2000! She has looked after 2 dogs and 2 cats so far over the years, in a few days she will be meeting our new cat when she comes for our dog's checkup. Brenda truly cares about her patients and asks how our "buds" are doing when we see her around town.

I love the way she does house calls, it is so much easier than going to a clinic. Brenda's smile, touch, and positive energy relaxes the pets which seems to make them feel like a friend is coming for a visit so the checkup goes very smoothly. She is very knowledgeable and explains in great detail any concerns we may have

When we had to have our Ranger put to sleep in 2004 she came to our home and was so kind and compassionate by helping us remember how lucky we were to have him and assuring us that we were doing the right thing for our poor dog. I told so many people that as painful it was to lose our dog, Dr. Brenda helped us deal with our loss.
I strongly recommend you call Dr. Brenda, your pets will be happy you did.

Dr. Brenda has been my veterinarian for over 16 years.  I can't express enough how wonderful and caring that she is with animals and they seem to know instinctively that she wants to help them.  On behalf of my furry four-legged critters, I would like to say THANK YOU! for bringing your special care to them - including those wonderful follow-up calls                                                              to check on their recovery.

I have recommended Dr. Brenda to several friends who have been more than happy with the quality of caring and service she provided and I can't recommend her enough - if you want a kind, friendly, gentle and caring vet for your pet, give Dr. Brenda a call.  You and your pet will be happy you did!

Dianne Martin, Lake Cowichan

Dr. Brenda has the know how and the best bedside manner to treat all seven of my animals. I wouldn't get anyone else. She's the best.
