i took my dog here for a very common thing that happens with dogs ears, they quoted me 800.00 for a very minor procedure. i ended up choosing the lesser procedure for 300.00 because of the high cost. a week later i went somehere else 197.00 for the same 800.00 procedure!!! they should be ashamed of them selves, if what you need can wait to go somewhere else you definately should!! can you believe that???

This place is great! As soon as you enter they have a triage nurse check your pet to see if immediate care is needed. The staff was great, very thorough, and spent lots of time with my dog. Also, the price was about the same as any vet and if you come withing 24 hours for the same problem, they do not charge for the 2nd visit.

I highly recommend Columbia River Vet Spec.

I totally agree with all the reviewers who have used this vet practice. The staff is efficient and caring and prices are reasonable with no upselling of additional services which is so common nowadays with vets.
I especially like the fact that they are a 24 hour operation when you have that unforseen emergency. They are definitely a cut above most vet practices.
I've lived in many states including California and Texas and I can truly say this is one of the best practices I've experienced.
Most local animal welfare organizations highly recommend them as well.

I lived in Vancouver for a few years when I came to the NW. This is the best vet I found in the area. I became a regular customer and my demands are pretty high. I am a breeder of dachshunds for 40 years and I'm pretty picky about my vet.

Well I moved 65 miles away and started using a different vet. And another, and another. Now I am thinking of making that 65 mile one way trip to return to the fold. I just can't find anyone as good as this vet.

Decent prices. Nice people. Caring, compassionate, pets and customers first, profit last. I like this group.

One late night in the summer, our dog came in from the back yard with a 2 inch gash in her leg. It was terrible looking. From the time I called the Emergency Vet until we left to bring her home, it was nothing but professional, honest, humane treatment. There was only one Vet on and we did get pushed back a couple times for bigger emergencies, but I expect that. We felt the price was very fair, considering it is emergency services.

We have had a menagerie of pets over the past 20 years - they are our 'children' - and Emergency Vet has (literally) been a life-saver on several occasions.I agree wholeheartedly with a prior contributor who warned away from using St Francis - despite their 24-hour availability.Emergency Vet svcs are prompt to respond and their professionalism and expertise put the others to shame.

This summer our cat had a UTI that was potentially fatal. Our vet did not give a promising diagnosis and recommended Emergency Vet Service over Dove Lewis to treat him. Words cannot express our gratitude towards EVS! They were friendly, honest and called to give updates. They encouraged us to call and always gave us kind words (even when our cat was a beast and had to be sedated but still treated him with so much respect). All of the employees we met were friendly, compassionate and appeared to love what they did. They are a outstanding deal. We would have easily paid twice as much as DL. We would take any of our cats there again and recommend them to our friends who need emergency vet services.

you never know what vet is on call, but a few years ago i made several visits with a 23 year old cat and felt absolute confidence in them. They often gave me more information and help then her then vet did. they took care of the problem and although they took her age into consideratio never did they say, hey this cat is Old and has an illnes that is going to kill her someday so why botheryes you have to pay up front but when i called regarding a bird my cat had attacked (poor bird came inside house) they said bring...they would ltake care of such Wild animals and transport if they do not need to be pts to the right wildlife group/no charge

one time i called regarding a sudden need for a delicate procedure, withdrawal of fluids from my cat and we worked out what we thought would be a Quiet time in the middle of the night and i knew that the person on staff was experienced in procedure. they were great..

no emergency is cheap but i never felt their prices were anything other than reasonable..only expensive if you are using them for a regualr vet visit ;-) for emergency , i felt they were pretty good in keeping the costs down. there is another in portland that i would not hesitate to go to but i would run to this one with out any hestitation. ONce you pay something up frontfor the exam, i know that you are treated well and so is your pet., great place.

I have used this clinic numerous times for my mini daschund. They are always professional and caring. Recently, my mini needed emergency surgery on a week-end. They took the best care of her and all of the staff, on every different shift, was so kind and caring. They answered all my questions, and told me to call at anytime for updates on how she was doing (which I did). They really do provide quality care in an emergency situation.

I have to say, if you have an emergency after hours, this is the place to go... Stay away from St. Francis vet, I have had nothing but issues with them since day one.
The staff at the emergency vet clinic are knowledgeable and good with trauma. They give you all possible scnerios and don't try to sugar coat things. I appreciate that

Message from Columbia River Veterinary Spec

Your pet is in good hands at CRVS.



Once known as Emergency Veterinary Services, we have been serving Southwest Washington and Portland, Oregon for over 30 years. We are now Columbia River Veterinary Specialists. What this means is weβ??ve taken the very best in 24/7 emergency care and added specialty services - right here, in Vancouver. Our skilled and compassionate team of nurses and doctors work to ensure that each patient receives the best possible care and comfort round-the-clock. We are a fully equipped and staffed 24-hour facility providing state-of-the-art intensive care medicine.



Our Veterinary Specialists are experts in Critical Care, Internal Medicine, Surgery and Cardiology. We act as consultants, supporting the practice of your regular veterinarian. If your pet is having a medical emergency, you do not need an appointment. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are fully staffed to receive, diagnose and treat medical emergencies.





We are committed to treating you as a close family friend. We will provide your pet with the same level of care and compassion we would want for our own pets. Gentle handling and patient comfort are our top priorities; rest assured that your pet will be treated with kindness while under our care. When your pet is discharged, we provide you and your family veterinarian with copies of all medical records and pertinent information needed to continue successful care. Our hospital is designed to be an extension of the services provided by your primary care veterinarian. All routine care of your pet will referred to your family veterinarian. Most often our clients are referred to us by their family veterinarian. While this recommendation is not necessary to make an appointment to see one of our Specialists, it is customary. We work with your family veterinarian and you, the pet owner, to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for your pet. This assures the best continuity of care and success. Your family veterinarian will recommend a specialist that they feel can best help your pet.

A specialist is a veterinarian who has pursued additional training in a particular discipline, normally by completing a one-year internship, followed by a two-three year residency. In addition, they must publish original research and pass rigorous board examinations to earn the title Diplomate, much like doctors do in human medicine. In general, veterinary specialists only provide medical care in their area of expertise and do not offer routine wellness care. It is for this reason that the specialist and your family veterinarian work together as health care partners. Columbia River VetERinary Specialists. We Care.
