The Vanderhoof Veterinary Clinic is moving to a new downtown location.
Dr. Douglas Ebbott will be moving his animal clinic into the old Westline Ford building on Burrard Avenue.
The clinic is currently located just off Highway 16 to the west of town.
“Hopefully we will be opening the new clinic on January 10,” said Ebbott.
“The building is currently undergoing some major renovations,” he said.
He continued that the decision to move was to make the clinic more accessible to people in town.
The clinic will be totally contained within the building which will also be used as a dog-holding facility for strays brought in by the District of Vanderhoof.
Vanderhoof mayor and council are currently going through the process of amending a zoning bylaw for the building as currently, the property is zoned as retail commercial and so a veterinary clinic is not an approved use in this location.
